High Salt Diet (Overview)

Too much sodium may lead to high blood pressure in those who are sensitive to sodium. If you have high blood pressure, your doctor will probably recommend that you reduce your sodium (salt) intake.

Such people should be on a strict sodium-restricted diet, as prescribed by their doctor.
