The molar mass of KI is 166 g/mol. The valence of both K+ and I- ions is one so moles and equivalents are equal
80 mg x 1 mol/166 g = 0.482 mmol (or mEq)

Please make sure the 80 mg is the amount of potassium iodide and not the amount of elemental potassium (39.1 g/mol) or elemental iodine (126.9 g/mol) as potassium iodide.

Unregistered guest remember that you can not substitute gluconate for citrate the absorbtion rates are different. The best absorbstion is with citrate the calculation/conversion issues aside your husband should stay with Kcitrate,the dose is very unpredictable to use tablets with several forms of K. You can probably have a serum K performed for $25.00 in 5 or 6 weeks to make sure the calculation/dose is working.

Depends on the substance ( need molecular weight, and valence of the ions)

Default Re: mEq/L to g/L conversion

can you help me with this convert.

Na = 81meq/L
K = 2meq/L
ca =2.5meq/L
Mg =1meq/L
Cl = 86.5/L
Acetate = 4meq/L

Default Re: mEq to mg conversion

Can someone post a link to or a list of mEq to mg (or gram) conversion for common forms of OTC potassium? I got from earlier that gluconate is 4.3mEq per gram (0.4257 mEq per 99mg elemental tab--right?), but apparently there is a longer list of common sources, each different.
Thank you.
