Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

You should avoid foods that are high in potassium. For doing this you should eat foods containing a low amount of potassium. Please refer the below link for a list of foods that are low in potassium and you can eat these foods in small amounts:

Low potassium foods

All foods have some amount of potassium and therefore you should eat a diet containing very low content of potassium.

For a menu of low potassium foods please refer the below link:

http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/menu-low-potassium-foods-1688.html

With a low potassium diet, your repeat test will show that your potassium has reduced.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
