Does Salt Intake Affect Gout
2500mg/ day: Well, sodium intake is in the news quite a bit lately and the current consensus is somewhere around 2500mg/day...But I can tell you that many of us far exceed that limit too often...Canned food is a huge problem...I.E a tiny 11.5oz can of campbell bean/bacon soup contains 860mg of sodium. Thus 4 of these babies already exceeds that limit. Eat well, stay healthy... Good luck.
It varies: People with congestive heart failure, or hypertension, chronic kidney disease need to be on a low sodium diet, usually 4000 mg or less per day. Other folks need not be so restiricted. High na intake may be required in some heavy perspiration situations. (gatoraid) so that a "safe' dose is not the same for everyone. In what context is your question framed.?
Possibly: There are some people that are very salt sensitive.... And too much salt can cause fluid retention/ water weight gain- as well as effect blood pressure. The other issue is what foods are associated with salty... Fries, chips, etc.... These do effect weight! Happy new year!See 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: Because dehydration can also lead to elevated sodium levels in your blood. It's the low sodium levels that are concerning. If you're healthy, your sense of thirst will lead you to self correct elevated sodium levels. Usually chronic high salt intake can elevate your blood pressure, because although the concentration of salt in your blood is normal, increased salt increases blood volume.
Retains the water: High levels of sodium will retain water in your system, which is why some athletes will take salt tablets prior to sports if they are playing in high heat, as in texas.
Varied diet: A varied diet with multiple sources. Avoid flying reptiles especially the pointy end.
You don't: 2 grams of sodium is severe restriction. 4 grams of sodium is mild restriction. 6-8 grams is normal. 10 or more is excessive. Since you have no way to measure exactly how much sodium you're eating, there's no point outside of a research lab to try to follow an exact measure of sodium. A good rule of thumb is to avoid adding extra salt at the table if possible and avoid salty foods (like chips).
Salt and family: Minimize portions of the salty foods when served; have conversations about salt with family members; ask for salt substitutes in cooking, such as onion salt or MRS DASH. Do not add salt; if you need a special taste, use MRS DASH products.See 1 more doctor answer
For two days straight I exceeded the recommended sodium intake amount. How bad is this? Really worried.
Depends: This would be problematic for a patient with congestive heart failure, ascites from liver cirrhosis, edema from certain chronic kidney disorders or severe hypertension. A healthy person would have no major adverse reactions to excess sodium intake for two days except need for adequate water intake.

See answer: Excessive salt (sodium) intake leads to fluid retention and its associated risks of high blood pressure and edema. Diuretics used to rid the body of the excess salt/water. Excessive salt intake not only defeats the purpose and effectiveness of a diuretic but also magnifies the loss of potassium, magnesium, and calcium which can cause significant adverse effects. Too little salt can dehydrate.See 1 more doctor answer
I don't know how do do diet little idea why to see salt intake on diet n why to use sea salt n organic salt rather than table salt?
Depends on purpose: But I presume that you trying to lose weight. The basic principle -Output of energy- intake of energy = net weight change in either direction. As for salt, if you don't have hypertension and don't add salt to your food, it is usually not a problem. Regular exercise and reduced carb intake are often effective. Sea salt contains other minerals besides sodium but else nothing that special
