My mother is a polycystic kidney disease patient. I would be very grateful for advice as to whether Kyolic tablets contain far too high potassium levels? Kyolic tablets have given increased energy and initially lowered blood pressure, but she is concerned that it may now be causing heart rythm problems. This may be due to her total potassium intake, but it is vitale to know of Kyolic is too concentrated in potassium. Thank you.

I have no experience with Kyolic tablets. I am not aware of what is contained in Kyolic tablets, nor am I aware of the use of Kyolic in patients with chronic kidney disease. I suggest that she consult with her physician and avoid using over the counter medications when they are not reviewed and approved by her physician.
