Foods High In Potassium And Magnesium?
0

4 posts in this topic

I am turning 36 in April and have lived with the most severe form of Crohn's Disease, since I was 12. Considering the the 5 major abdominal surgeries and food limitations I've been forced to live with, I was was devastated when I was diagnosed with Celiac in April 2012. Sadly, because most of the symptoms of Celiac mirror those of Crohn's, I feel as though my GI specialist have deeply wronged me by not considering my painful symptoms could be from another GI disease(especially since these symptoms remained after my last small bowel resection and all testing proved my Crohn's to be inactive). Instead, my doctors prescribed me large doses of strong pain meds & nausea medicine for many years and I've been unknowingly poisoning my small bowel with Gluten, for FAR TOO LONG! Wheat filled products were about 90% of my diet, prior to the Celiac. For the past 6 months, I've been extremely ill and in and out of hospitals/ER's, due to severely low potassium and magnesium levels. Despite my exhausting efforts, I continue to struggle with the fight to keep both at a healthy level.

So, my question is: Can anyone share with me foods that are naturally and artificially high in potassium and magnesium? I could really benefit from any assistance anyone can offer me. Thank you!!

I have teen boys that work and exercise outside in the summer heat. Lack of potassium was a problem for my oldest. We found that fruit juices like OJ, apple and grape have more potassium than Gatorade. Milk does, too. I googled " potassium foods" on the Internet and there were a few Medical centers or American Heart sites that had them listed. I would only look at the reputable sites as someone's blog or a site selling supplements may not have accurate info.

"The best natural sources for the mineral are whole grain products, green leafy vegetables, nuts, and beans. Foods that supply close to 100 milligrams of magnesium a day include one ounce of almonds or cashews, one cup of beans or brown rice, three-quarters of a cup of cooked spinach, or one cup of cooked oat bran cereal."

you may need dr prescribed supplements for the K+ (potassium), Magnesium, I would suggest mag delay or mag 64, this are usually found at the pharmacy counter, though they are OTC.
