Our heart healthy diet plan has a slightly higher potassium amount--since potassium recommendations are slightly higher to benefit better control for high blood pressure.

However, I can not figure out why you have 2 potassium listings. I have played with our regular program as well as heart health and diabetes...I can't even get 2 potassium amounts to show up ever.

My suggestion would be to focus your attention on the level that best meets your needs based on a discussion with your doctor and your medical needs

You could also check with our tech support department to see if they can figure this out from a computer program standpoint (which is definately not more area of expertise) :)

They are coming up on my Daily Nutrition Feedback page. I am not on healthy heart, I had chosen potassium as one of my nutrients to be tracked.

Can anyone tell me why there are 2 different Potassium counts on my daily nutrition check? One says I should have 3500-4700 and the other one says I should have 4500-6000.
Potassium is something I have been working on as my Mom had a deficiency which caused leg cramps. I have had the same problem but have found that being conscious of my potassium intake has helped. Any info would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
