The latter category includes compounds that interfere with normal digestion and absorption. Unfortunately, none of these compounds has a significant anti-obesity effect. Glucosidase inhibitors as well as lipase inhibitors have been developed. The glucosidase inhibitors, acarbose and miglitol, for example, inhibit the action of amylase and thus reduce its activity. This means that the long-chain (straight and branched) starches found in many plant products are not digested as quickly as usual. In theory, this retardation of digestion should result in a retardation of absorption of the end products of starch hydrolysis.

Values below 135 mEq/L (hyponatremia) are also considered abnormal and are of clinical concern. In normal individuals the level of sodium in the serum is tightly controlled and this control is intertwined with the control of potassium concentration, chloride concentration, and water balance. Diarrhea, due to illness or to the excessive use of laxatives, increases the loss of both sodium and potassium. Excessive sweating over a period of time likewise can result in an excessive loss of these electrolytes.

Virtually all the body potassium is exchangeable, with the exception of small amounts that are irretrievably bound up in the bone mineral. 0 mEq/L) is present in extracellular fluids. Just as all foods serve as sources of sodium, so too are they sources of potassium. Only highly refined food ingredients, for example, pure sugars, fats, and oils, lack this essential nutrient. Especially good sources are orange juice, avocados, fish, and bananas. Potassium passes freely from the gastrointestinal system into the enterocytes lining the intestinal tract and then into the body.
