Blimey - this is worse than the Ansel Keys cock-up!
I don't restrict my salt intake but have more than once been shown to have 'low' serum sodium levels. Not mega low, just a BIT low. The medical profession as a whole (ie Diabetes consultant and GP) wanted me to stop taking Losartan for my BP and instantly swapped me to other drugs - all of which caused instant (within a few days) caused my feet and ankles to swell horrifically. The normal remedy for this is to start a diuretic - but these are totally contra-indicated - for the simple reason that I have low sodium!! I was pleased about that, frankly. I hate the thought of having to take extra chemicals to counteract the others, unless I rely on whatever's causing whatever to stay alive. (eg you know, if I needed chemo for cancer or something else along those lines) Makes me feel like I want to stop taking everything - other than just insulin which I do actually need to stay alive in the first place, so I'll never stop actually WANTING DESPERATELY to continue using it LOL
I dunno what to do, or think.
