Hi low levels of potassium can be due to various reasons. Pls provide the details of the same or discuss with your doctor about it if you do not know. The kind of foods may depend on the cause. But all fruits are generally good source of potassium and so is coconut water. Hope this guides you.

Hypokalemia a condition in which serum potassium levels drop below required levels. First you need to rule out the cause of hypokalemia. The foods rich in potassium are prescribed according to the cause.
