So, I tried to find something for potassium, following an innocent question “isn’t it bad for the kidneys”. My gut feeling is that it may be similar to sodium: Some people develop kidney disease from metabolic syndrome. Once they get their glucose under control, their sodium will be fine.
But I admit that I couldn’t find anything regarding potassium and metabolic syndrome. I did find some references to diabetic kidney disease, but that was it. I couldn’t even find hints at how much potassium is too much, and if this is connected to high carb or not. Anyone knows any references to talks or papers?
