Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Normally, your blood potassium level is 3.6 to 5.2 millimoles per liter (mmol/L)

Your lab may have a different range for what's normal. Your lab report should contain the range your lab uses. Also, your doctor will evaluate your results based on your health and other factors. This means that a value that falls outside the normal values listed here may still be normal for you or your lab.

Blood potassium levels also vary with age.

Regards,
Maryann
