Symptoms, conditions and causes

What is the primary side effect of electrolytes on the heart?

That would be a heart arrhythmia symptom. Heart arrhythmias is the first thing to show up with a lack of electrolytes, but you can also have blood pressure as well. The heart goes out of balance when you're lacking electrolytes, which is really bizarre to me is that if you go to the doctor do they ever recommend electrolytes? No, they recommend medication for the arrhythmia.

And what would that be? First of all it might be a diuretic possibly. And what is the side effect of diuretics? Deficiency of potassium, magnesium, and the retention of calcium, which then causes arrhythmias. And then they might also put you on calcium channel blocker which has a similar effect.

It's fascinating that the solution ends up creating the problem you're trying to solve.
