Does Sea Salt Have Potassium
Not a substitute: Regular table salt traditionally came from the sea (or where the sea used to be until the water went away, leaving behind the salt). "sea salt" is like regular salt, but may not have the added iodine. Since we all need a bit of iodine, one should use regular iodized salt or iodized "sea salt", if allowed to use salt. ...Read more
Does warm water mixed with salt help acne? Because it exfoliates and salt kills bacteria. Does it have to be sea salt since regular salt has iodine?
Salt intake: There are no published clinical studies on Himalayan salt comparing it to table salt. Himalayan salt contains 85% sodium chloride and up to 84 trace minerals, including iodine, lead, and plutonium at very low levels. It is speculated that iron content may accounts for its pink color. We get trace elements from other dietary sources, so I think regular salt is just fine. Limit to ...Read more
A low sodium salt has contents: 66.6%potassium chloride,33.3%sodium chloride.Should I be concerned on its high potassium or good replacement for salt?
Use caution.: Salt intake and salt replacements are getting a lot of press lately. Sodium load in a diet is getting out of control due to practices of our food industry and taste requirements. People look at the alternatives and Potaccium is one of them. A usual replacement shows that the ratio of NaCL/KCl should be 60/40. So your salt may be showing an unusual ratio. But be aware that it is quantity not ratio. ...Read more
Can someone with high blood pressure eat something with distilled vinegar in it? And does distilled vinegar have salt in it?
Would it be safe to put sea salt in my water? I have chronically low sodium and chloride in my blood.
Low sodium: You have what is known as a "dilutional hyponatremia" (d), "hyponatremia" means "low sodium". Your sodium (n) goes down because the same amount of n is found in an increased amount of fluid in the body. This is found in patients who have edema, or who takie in a large amount of water. Patients with d usually have edema, . ...Read more
Other than medical conditions & lotta meds. I have LOW sodium. I only drink diet soda (which HAS sodium) 12-14 cans daily! Why would sodium b low??
Too much soda: That is far too much soda. It's making your sodium low based on how your kidneys will handle the soda you are drinking. Your body very tightly regulates your sodium, so you will mostly just pee out the sodium. However, if you drink more volume of liquid than your kidneys can get rid of, then you end up holding on to the fluid and this dilutes the sodium you have in your body. ...Read more
I heard that a low salt diet is good if you have high blood pressure. How much salt/sodium intake is too much?
Does sodium which is found naturally in foods like carrots still considered bad sodium like table salt? (for CKD patients)
Let's define "salt": Jake, table salt is not "bad" any more than glucose is bad. Table salt is sodium chloride, but sodium can be bound to many anions to form other "salts' such as sodium citrate, for instance, which is a preservative. So it is really the total amount of sodium consumed in your foods that is important especially if you have kidney disease. Count grams of sodium per serving, not salt per se. ...Read more
Loss of Aldosterone: Metabolic acidosis (increased h+ and blood acidity) due to decreased bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) level in addisonian crisis is due to loss of the hormone aldosterone because sodium reabsorption in the distal tubule is linked with acid/hydrogen ion (h+) secretion. Less aldosterone stimulation of the renal distal tubule leads to sodium wasting in urine and h+ retention in the serum, resulting in bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) drop. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
