What is K-Lor?

K-Lor is one of the many brands of potassium supplements. Its primary ingredient is potassium chloride. The primary use of K-Lor is the treatment of low potassium, a condition called hypokalemia. K-Lor also can offset potassium losses resulting from other drugs, such as diuretics. It comes in a powder, which you should mix with cold water or fruit juice. If you are taking K-Lor, you should probably consult a doctor about a diet that contains an appropriate amount of potassium.
