    Low potassium refers to a lower than normal level of potassium in your bloodstream. Potassium is a chemical that is critical to the proper functioning of nerve and muscles cells, particularly heart muscle cells. People who contain low potassium are easy to suffer weakness, tiredness, or cramping in arm or leg muscles, nausea or vomiting, passing large amounts of urine or feeling very thirsty, even fainting. Some abnormal psychological behaviors which are caused by low potassium are depression, psychosis, delirium, confusion, or hallucinations. The individual who is lack of potassium is easy to get body disorders, blurred vision is one of them. Plus, blurry vision can be caused by glaucoma, photophobia and other eye problems. So be careful.

    Potassium is essential minerals and electrolytes that support cell and muscle function and regulate fluid. If you have a prolonged or significant drop in potassium, you may have problems with muscle weakness. Serious symptoms such as irregular heart rate, muscle fiber breakdown and paralysis may occur in severe cases. Fatigue and confusion are also associated with low potassium. Blurry vision is not a sign of a low potassium level, but vision changes could indicate other conditions. In this case, you should go to see the doctor, and have a check.
