@contentandwell, JK I don't know if it's just a problem for diabetics or if it is a problem when the amount in the body is too much. I never knew anything about it until I was diagnosed with diabetes 2 and my endo did the profile. My potassium was out of range. I didn't ask him if all diabetics have this problem or just me. At the time I knew so little about diabetes that I was still in the mindset of not even knowing what to ask. I don't see him again until February I'll ask him then or I imagine you could Google and find the info. I bet Mayo has information on it too.

@contentandwell @retiredteacher I was a diabetic for several years and no one said anything about bananas or potassium. It was not until I was diagnosed with CKD that I had to watch my intake of potassium (and sodium and phosphorus) because my kidneys couldn't handle it.
