potassium fluctuation
My sister had a potassium level of 5.5.  She was put on a low potassium diet (which she really did not follow) for two weeks and now her level is "critically low".  I don't know the level.  However, they put her on potassium.  What could be causing this?

Diuretic medication (water pills) or disease states, such as, heart disease or kidney disease may cause issues with potassium fluctuation. It is hard to say without knowing her medical condition. Thank you for your question.
