How can one simulate a medical condition that involves low potassium, low calcium, fewer electrolytes, and low blood pressure?

In the short story that I'm working on, the protagonist simulates a medical condition (involving the four telltale indicators above) using an overdose of over-the-counter vitamin supplements, so that when his blood is tested, it indicates abnormalities in those areas. Is this remotely plausible, or is it completely farfetched? If so, how long would it take and how would one go about it?
