Potassium Problems & Pancreatitis

potassium and the pancreasI seem to be having problems with not eating enough potassium. This isn't a huge surprise since I'm a light eater in general and foods rich in potassium are not necessarily my favorite.

To counter this deficiency I'm drinking V8 Juice, eating dried apricots and potato chips and walking.

My understanding is that a lack of potassium can cause kidney problems and is common amongst sufferers of pancreatitis.

My goal is to increase the amount of potassium I eat and strengthen my overall health which I feel will protect my pancreas and help it to function at an easier level.
