A potassium level of 5.39 is manageable ...
Normal range of serum potassium is 3.5 to 5.0 mmol/ I....
I suspect that your doctor may treat you with a change in your blood pressure regimen to adjust your blood potassium level a bit ...
Adding certain diuretics may accomplish this ...
The ramipril can have some effect on your potassium vs sodium level but that is protective of your kidneys with history of diabetes
Keep journal of your blood pressure readings ( seated and at rest 10 minutes )
Folow up with your doctor
Your potassium level is mildly elevated and your doctor will prefer to see this within normal range again -- yes to that
