Deficiency Symptoms of Potassium

Deficiency Symptoms of Potassium:

Deficiency of any nutrient in the body is undesirable and potassium is not an exception. A diet deficient in potassium may lead to symptoms like fatigue and muscle weakness. Other indications for a deficiency of potassium include the following:

  • Inactive reflexes
  • Abnormal heartbeat
  • Heart palpitations
  • Anemia
  • Severe headaches

Potassium-deficient people may also experience other serious side effects, such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • Pain in their intestines
  • Swelling in their glands
  • Diabetes

If any of the symptoms above are experienced it doesn’t necessarily mean a lack of potassium is the cause. We strongly recommend that you consult you GP or local health professional for further information.
