Potassium is an important mineral that controls nerve and muscle function. The heart beats at a normal rhythm because of potassium. Potassium can also maintain liquid and electrolyte balance and pH levels. The normal range of potassium is between 3.5 and 5.5 mEq/L. The kidneys help keep potassium at a normal level. However, in kidney failure, kidneys fail to remove excess potassium, so the level builds up in the body. High potassium level in the body is called hyperkalemia. Some of the effects of elevated potassium are nausea, weakness, numbness and slow pulse.

For people with renal failure, dialysis is necessary to help regulate potassium. However, between dialysis treatment, potassium levels rise and high potassium foods should be limited. Foods high in potassium include avocados, bananas, dried fruits, kiwi, mangos, oranges and orange juice, papaya, prune juice, pumpkin and potatoes and French fries, etc. Avoid salt substitutes and other seasoning with potassium.

More importantly, repairing injured kidneys and improving kidney function is the radical way to regulate potassium level by Chinese herbal treatment.
