Hyperkalemia-foods rich in potassium include bananas, dried fruits, peanut butter, broccoli, green leafy veggies, potatoes and tomatoes also if pt is on a potassium sparing diuretic and they eat a large amount of foods containing potassium they can develop hyperkalemiaalso salt substitutes are potassium chloride!!! Need to watch your pts use of them!If unable to control with diet the potassium sparing diuretic may be changed to one that increases potassium excretion also ace can be changed to an arb or another medication that doesnt mess with potassium levels
