... is the cause of that???
Low potassium (hypokalemia) has many causes. The most common cause of low potassium is excessive potassium loss in urine or from the digestive tract.
This may be caused by:
Certain diuretics — water pills
Excessive use of laxatives
Chronic kidney failure
Rarely, low potassium is due to not getting enough potassium in your diet.
