This is also true for sodium, and to some extend magnesium.
Edit: You might want to check your taurine levels. From Amalgam Illness diagnosis and treatment, Andrew Hall Cutler PhD PE
Taurine is necessary to prevent too much magnesium from being lost in the urine, and it also regulates the balance of magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium inside and outside cells. Thus correcting low taurine is likely to improve electrolyte problems – especially those that have not responded to supplements. Intractable electrolyte problems suggest testing for plasma amino acids to investigate taurine. An anxiously depressed person with low taurine and possibly signs of hypothyroidism is hypoadrenal – that is, has cortisol levels which are too low. This may not show up on tests for cortisol since the dynamic range of cortisol levels are so wide and people’s individual needs for it vary so much.
Taurine also specifically scavenges the hypoclorite (OCI^-) anion. Sensitivity to chlorine as in swimming pool chlorine or bleach odor strongly suggests taurine deficieny. Taurine is involved in proper heart function. Heart problems of any sort suggest a taurine trail unless it is known to be relatively high.
Also: Be careful with potassium supplementation, because it can cause heart problems and even cardiac arrest.
