I’ve been regularly using Huel as my main source of calories since 2018. Recently I’ve been put on Beta blockers (propanolol) to reduce my heart rate / adrenaline and alleviate palpitations I’ve been experiencing from stress.
I initially started with 20mg doses of beta blockers, however this amount didn’t agree with me. So I’ve been gradually reducing doses to even 2.5mg of beta blockers as they certainly alleviate my high heart rate and adrenaline response. Unfortunately even a dose this low didn’t really settle with me, basically leaving me bedridden.
One potential avenue Ive researched is how beta blockers can affect potassium intake, it essentially blocks it from being absorbed by cells. This leads to recommendations that people don’t eat bananas or potassium high foods whilst on the medication.
This leads to Huel - something which contains 175% recommended dosage of potassium. Logically this could be where I’ve been experiencing trouble. However I’ve not seen anything in the forums which suggests this is the case, specifically I’ve seen people say they’re on beta blockers in historical threads and not mention any troubles.
I’m just wanting to check if I’m missing something here or have a thread with enough keywords that may bring others who are searching for answers to a central point.
