Masterjohn Q&A Files Episode 238


Question: Potassium supplements for salt-sensitive high blood pressure?

If you take potassium supplements in doses higher than 100 milligrams, especially if you're going to take high-dose potassium, that is not well-mixed into a meal. Those include diabetes and NSAIDs, especially including potassium-sparing diuretics, but there's a big list of contraindicated medications.
