|Potassium is one of the
electrolytes, electrically-charged particles responsible for maintaining the right acid/base level and
salt-and-water balance in the cells and fluid around the cells.
The other major electrolytes are sodium, chloride, and
bicarbonate. Sodium and chloride are both minerals.
Potassium deficiency can cause muscular weakness, paralysis,
heart rhythm irregularities, lethargy, and kidney and lung failure.
Homeostatic mechanisms tightly control potassium
levels, usually preventing the severe symptoms seen with potassium deficiency or excess.
In addition to contributing to regulation of
acid/base level and salt-and-water balance, potassium
is also important for proper muscle contraction and nerve conduction.
Excess potassium can cause muscular weakness,
paralysis, heart rhythm irregularities, and death.
However, athletes who exercise for long periods in
the heat, or who take diuretics, run the risk of potassium deficiency due to losses in
sweat and urine.
