A new research study by researchers from Wenzhou Medical University in Zhejiang province lead by Dr Don Chen revealed that almost all Covid-19 patients exhibited hypokalemia and that supplementation with potassium ions was one of the many factors that assisted in their recovery.
It was found that as the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus attacks human cells via the ACE2 (Angiotensin- converting enzyme-2) receptors, it also attacks the renin–angiotensin system (RAS), causing a rapid loss of electrolytes and potassium.
However, it was found from the study that patients responded well to potassium ion supplements and had a better chance of recovery.
Potassium is critical to maintain at adequate levels. When levels begin to fall or cannot be maintained the result can be deadly. Researchers found that 93% of the most critically sick were low in potassium, and those that received potassium supplementation were much more likely to recover.
