Treatments if you have too much potassium

Two types of treatments exist:

hospital treatment: if the electrocardiogram reveals serious abnormalities or the hyperkalemia exceeds 6.5 mmol / L, the patient is transferred to the intensive care unit to follow a treatment that will lower the potassium level and protect the heart. The techniques used are various: 10ml ampoules of intravenous calcium gluconate, infusion of glucose serum and insulin, administration of beta-mimetics or even hemodialysis (other treatments, such as ZS-9 OR and patiromer are research subject)

Outpatient treatment: If the hyperkalemia is moderate and there are no cardiac or metabolic disorders, the treatment consists of maintaining a suitable potassium level and, when possible, treating the cause. The treatment is based on three levels: a diet low in potassium, the taking of an ion exchange resin and the correction of acidosis when it exists

Natural remedies for excess potassium
The potassium intake is essentially food. It is therefore necessary to adopt a diet low in potassium to lower your serum potassium. Here is the list of foods low in potassium:

Fruits: pineapple, blueberries, cherries, lemons, clementines, strawberries, raspberries, canned fruits, currants, lychees, mandarins, mango, watermelon, blackberries, peaches, apples, plums, grapes

Vegetables: asparagus, eggplant, canned beets, broccoli, uncooked celery, cauliflower, cucumber, green beans, lettuce and escarole, corn, fennel, leeks, peppers

Meat: beef, chicken, pork, turkey

Fish: avoid oily fish

Dairy products: avoid chocolate milk and commercial products; prefer fresh milk
Grain Products: bagels and soft breads with white flour, light rye bread, white rice, white pasta

Others: olives and olive oil, coffee and ordinary teas (excluding cappuccino, espresso, turco), honey, jams, soft drinks (except sodas), butter
A dietitian can help you develop a diet low in potassium.

Potassium-rich foods (to avoid)

Here are the foods that contain the most potassium and should be avoided in cases of hyperkalemia:

Legumes: red, white and black beans; lentils, dried peas, soya, peanut
Vegetables: Swiss chard, Brussels sprouts, artichokes, pumpkin, tomatoes, carrots, lamb’s lettuce, avocado, black radish, cooked spinach, potatoes and tubers
Dried fruits especially almonds, nuts and peanuts
Fruits: banana, orange, kiwi, coconut, prunes, chestnuts
Animal protein: excess red meat, squid, mussels
Grain Products: Whole Grain Bread, Whole Wheat Bread, Bagels, Black Rye Bread, Brown Rice, Whole Wheat Pasta
Others: chocolate, cocoa
You can reduce the potatoes’ potassium by boiling them twice:

Wash and peel the vegetable.
Cut it into cubes
Put the dice in a large pot of water
Boil the water
Remove the water, put fresh water
Boil again until the vegetable is tender
