I agree with Becky completely. Low potassium is not something to fool around with; do what your doctor suggests.
My mom has been hospitalized twice with very low potassium, and it had many side effects. Note that she is 90 and not in good health generally, so it probably won't get that bad with you. Just grit your teeth and get the blood tests done, take supplements if necessary and be healthy.
Unless you are dieting drastically I don't think it will affect your potassium, but everyone is different. My mom's seems to have been caused by use of too many diuretics, due to congestive heart failure. I say seems because they are not positive.
