Coffee is a diuretic and this can affect your potassium level.

What causes high potassium


Often, a report of high blood potassium isn't true hyperkalemia. Instead, it may be caused by the rupture of blood cells in the blood sample during or shortly after the blood draw. The ruptured cells leak their potassium into the sample. This falsely raises the amount of potassium in the blood sample, even though the potassium level in your body is actually normal. When this is suspected, a repeat blood sample is done.
The most common cause of genuinely high potassium (hyperkalemia) is related to your kidneys, such as:
- Acute kidney failure
- Chronic kidney disease
Other causes of hyperkalemia include:
- Addison's disease (adrenal failure)
- Alcoholism or heavy **** use that causes rhabdomyolysis, - a breakdown of muscle fibers that results in the release of -- potassium into the bloodstream
- Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors
- Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs)
- Destruction of red blood cells due to severe injury or burns
- Excessive use of potassium supplements
- Type 1 diabetes

I have high potassium what can I do about it


That's the good news! If you have high potassium - or are at risk for getting it - speak to your doctor about the various options you have to manage your potassium levels. It's important you tell your doctor about all the medicines you are taking including over-the-counter drugs, herbals, and supplements. To help keep your potassium levels within normal range, your doctor may recommend the following:
- Following a low-potassium diet, if needed.
-Try avoiding certain salt substitutes.
- Avoiding herbal remedies or supplements.
- Taking water pills or potassium binders, as directed by -your healthcare provider.
- Following your treatment plan carefully if you have -diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, or any other serious condition.

What foods are low in potassium?


Almost all foods have some of it, so the serving size becomes important. For a low-potassium diet avoid LARGE servings of
- whole grain bread, brans, granola
- sports drinks, all milk products, soy milk
- apricots, avocado, bananas, melons, oranges, pears, dried fruits
- baked beans, raw cabbage, raw carrots, olives, potato, pumpkin, spinach, tomatoes, most bean types
- clams, most fish, most beef types
- salt free soups, low-salt and salt substituted foods = avoid these completely
- peanut butter, peanuts, chocolate
Note that this list is NOT exhaustive and can be eaten in smaller quantities, 1/2 cup or so.
Low potassium foods are
- white flour and white breads
= cakes and pies without chocolate or high-K fruits or nuts
- apples, apricots, blackberries, cherries, grapes, mandarins, peaches (drain syrup off), pineapple, plums, strawberries
- asparagus, green beans, cooked cabbage and carrots, cauliflower, corn, eggplant, lettuce, fresh mushrooms (not canned), onions, green peas, zucchini
- chicken, turkey, tuna fish, eggs
- almonds, cashews (1 oz)
- cheddar chesse, cottage chess (1 oz)
Again this list is NOT exhaustive. For complete info see a dietician, or do an exhaustive Google search eg
