Like "JJ that is another thing which is restricted for me is sodium of any kind. (sea salt is just a fancy name for salt which is sodium) That is due to having thirst when eating things with salt on or in them. I have been having trouble with coming in to dialysis having consumed too much water in the past 36 hrs. That can cause problems with breathing and with my heart if I get too much liquid in me. I am slightly surprised that your pharmicist said you could consume salt as salt often results in water gain and high BP."
