A patient comes to the emergency room with very low potassium and dehydration. The doctor would want to ask if this patient has __________. A. been following a liquid diet B. been using diet pills recently C. been taking diuretics D. been following a low-carbohydrate diet
The doctor would be curious as to whether or not the patient was taking diuretics. This is because diuretics can cause symptoms such as low potassium and dehydration. This happens because diuretics flush the body out and tend to leave it without enough liquids to stay healthy.
I just took the quiz. The answer is C. been taking diuretics.
