Re: My 12 Year Old Daughter Loves Salt

From: KD


When I as younger my doctor encouraged me to cut back on salt because it causes high blood pressure and I my blood pressure was a bit high because of anxiety I experienced from fainting, etc. I also cut back on sugar in order to maintain a healthy insulin level. In my opinion if cutting back on sugar or salt may help me in any way or lessen the intensity of my incidents then it's worth it.
