The Link Between Diabetes And Potassium
Despite the wide recognition that the body’s potassium level can affect diabetes, researches are still going on to verify such claim. In one study, low level of potassium has been linked to high level of glucose and insulin in healthy individuals. These two traits are often associated with diabetes.
In another 2011 study, low potassium level is linked to high blood pressure and increased risk of diabetes. However, it was noted that although low potassium can increase your risk of diabetes, taking more potassium will not entirely cure your diabetes.
