Amounts of Potassium & Magnesium in Snack Foods

If you have Bartter’s or Gitelman’s Syndrome you should know that diet alone cannot come close to correcting the potassium and magnesium deficiencies. At the same time, if you are going to eat a snack, you might as well have something that adds rather than detracts from your levels. Looks like a bag of peanuts would be a good choice, and popcorn would be a poor choice.
