what foods have potasium: from on 2002-04-27

My Dad was told he had too much potasium. He was eating a lot of bananas. We know that bananas have potasium, but I was wondering what other type of food might also cause this problem

I had a positive test for celiac. I have been to docs for 20 years about my symptoms and have been treated for everything! I have also had every test. I finally got a new young out of college female doc, who says I think you have celiac.....I don't even know what this is. Now I am on the gluten free diet.....it no longer hurts to eat. AND IT HURT TO EAT EVERYTHING. I can even drink soda, a major painful event. I also had horrible gerd! It is gone. Even this summer a gastro gave me a clean bill of health! Except the catch all irrritable bowel thing, But I was still alternating constipation and diarh, I don't think I was really constipated as most of us think. Just empty, anyway I am telling you that because the docs can't think Celiac when they hear the word constipation. They auto assume irritable bowel (which really should not be diagnosed until after all Celiac tests are done. One thing I have learned from all this is you really have to do most the research yourself and that docs know virtually nothing about Celiac or I would have been cured long ago because I repeatedly went for help. I never gave up trying. Good luck to you, don't give up. I heard the Mayo Clinic has a special diagnostic program for hard to diagnos intestinal track symtoms. They are listed on the internet

I suffer very badly with cramp and have been told in the past that this can be due to lack of potasium. I take quinine tablets for the cramps but wanted to know which foods besides bananas are high in potasium
