One thing to be careful of when you're tracking micro-nutrients like potassium, is which food entries you use. If it's a Spark-generated entry, then it will include all of the micro-nutrients, but most user-generated entries do not. Some user-generated entries only have the calories, while most list just the nutrients that are required by law to be on the nutrition labels.
If you are entering your own foods, and there is no potassium listing on the label, then you can use either of these sites to get the information that you need so that you can include it in your entry: www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=2
If your doctor feels that it's important for you to accurately track your potassium, then I would strongly encourage you to do your own, complete entries for your foods if there is not a Spark-generated one.
Hope this helps!

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
