WEIGHED MORE IN 4TH GRADE THAN NOW Says:


I am a thyroidectomy hyperthyroidism 45 year old female with hypokalemia on 30 meq's a day but I also take 80 mgs of Lasix.
9 out of ten times my potassium is low but I have been eating so much food with potassium that mine was at 10 last time and I was in the emergency room and I cannot find a doctor, not at a hospital in my area that doesn't have a 3 month wait. Is there a way to get your blood taken without an emergency room? I have insurance, just do not trust hospitals. They treat you like a rotating door and you never accomplish anything. HELP. PLEASE.

Your doctor can order blood work, some blood draws are done right at their office, or at the hospital lab, but neither requires you to go to the ER.

What reason did they give for a 3 month wait? Usually, if you've had to go to the ER, your doctor will make time for you to come in sooner.

Lasix is a diuretic and it is well known to cause low potassium in some people that take it. Mine dropped so low that I had to stop taking it, and switch to a potassium sparing diuretic, which is also something you could ask your doctor about.
