    Leg cramps may be related to your potassium but there are many other causes. It’s best to ask your doctor about leg cramps and other symptoms you experience.

    Please work with her dietitian at the dialysis center as they will know more about her multipole conditions and the best dietary guidance. Plus it’s very difficult for one to eat from a food list.
