Avoid carbonated...: Avoid carbonated sodas/drinks to decrease gas bloating. Eat soft foods, and chew foods carefully.

Why patient with low na level requires no added salt diet?

Why patient with low na level requires no added salt diet?

Timed correction: Assuming the low sodium was low enough to get admitted, too rapid a rate of correction can cause neurologic complications, which can be severe and permanent (but are fortunately very rare)--so it is done in a controlled fashion with IV fluids, even though the thought of an extra large french fry to fix it seems logical.
