More specifically, you want help with Is Potassium Good or Bad For Your Kidneys??
so I had another question that came up regarding potassium someone said I’m concerned about taking potassium because I heard it’s dangerous for my kidney so is it okay to take potassium okay well it really depends if you have stage 5 kidney failure end-stage renal failure okay we’re you have 10% of the kidney working you want to avoid potassium why because you’ve already lost your ability to rid potassium and other nutrients as well so it’s gonna build up and that could be dangerous to the heart because your pulse rate goes down you might have neurological problems like a tingling sensation or even numbness you feel weak nauseated but if you’re healthy like the great majority of the population potassium is protective to the kidney it actually can prevent a bad kidney especially if you’re diabetic one of the complications of being a diabetic is you lose the kidney function if you have enough potassium you can hopefully prevent that effect so potassium is very very healthy especially for the kidney okay and the reason why you would have a kidney problem the first place it usually comes from high levels of sugar and insulin which destroys the kidney the eye the heart and the brain but the kidney especially so a lot of diabetics died of renal failure they end up on kiddie Dallas’s so not only can potassium protect the kidney but it can help reestablish normal blood sugars as well so as you increase more potassium you can just make insulin work better in the body and you can bring it down so that can help a diabetic greatly not to mention it can lower blood pressure too so a lot of blood pressure problems actually come from a potassium deficiency but what people are doing is they’re lowering their salt but they’re ignoring this potassium what they don’t know is they need a lot they need like four point seven grams of potassium every single day it’s a lot of vegetables but potassium can help you potassium functions on the nerves the muscle the rhythm of the heart it’s a major electrolyte most cells in your body have potassium pumps because it’s intimately involved in creating energy and fluid balance alright guys thanks for watching hey guys real quick I have a new healthy keto eating plan for you just go to dr.

In this video, Dr. Berg answers the question, is potassium good or bad for your kidneys. It really depends on how well your kidney works, like if you have stage 5 kidney failure or renal failure where you only have 10% of your kidney working, you need to avoid potassium because the kidney doesn’t have the ability to get rid of potassium and other nutrients anymore that could lead to hyperkalemia.
Symptoms of Hyperkalemia
• Slow Pulse
One of the complications of being a diabetic is you lose the kidney function but if you are healthy and you have enough potassium is protective for the kidney especially if you’re a diabetic.
Benefits of Potassium
• Protects the kidney
• Help establish normal blood sugars
• Makes insulin work well in the body
• It can lower blood pressure
Functions of Potassium: Nerves / Muscles / Fluid / Energy
