Limit the intake of potassium

Food high in potassium can raise your blood potassium level further, so you have to limit those foods ,such as melons, organ juice, bananas, kiwi fruit, etc.

Certain medications can also make it harder for the kidneys to remove potassium, for example, blood pressure drugs like ACEI and beta blockers, potassium-sparing diuretics, siberian ginseng, hawthorn berries. If you are taking those medications, you should talk with your doctor to change them into other kinds of medicines.

Use diuretics to remove potassium.

Receive dialysis
