Potassium Chloride appears to be the main salt substitute around. Sodium Chloride is table salt. Being chemically illiterate .. Do you folks who have been treating use Potassium Chloride? Is it HCV/liver safe? I used a LOT of salt. Even salted cornbread and milk. Stopped all added salt, try to find the lowest sodium foods possible, etc., on the straight and narrow now. I understand the reason to stop, accept it, do it, and will keep doing it, however ...
Anybody in here on beta blockers have any experience with a salt substitute? I'm wondering if you can or can not use something like Lo Salt that has potassium chloride in it along with beta blockers, and if so how much is recommended. I'm looking to substitute lo salt for some other high in potassium foods in order to cut down on my sugar content.

But I'm highly concerned about the advice your dishing out about Ms. Dash. Ms. Dash IS NOT a salt substitute it is merely a salt replacement. There's a WORLD of difference between Ms. Dash and Morton Salt Substitute (for example) which is loaded with Potassium Chloride. If you take the time to read the ingredients on ANY Ms. Dash flavors, you'll find nothing but herbs and spices, there's absolutely NO potassium chloride in it. Point of reference: http://www.mortonsalt.
And, yes, I was up many times each night to go to the bathroom. I kept a styrofoam cup at my desk at work and I filled it up as many times a day as it took to get my gallon in and I marked the side of the cup each time I filled it so that I didn't lose track. (I know, styrofoam cups aren't "green"...but it was necessary at the time). Do the best you can with the water intake...it helps.
You might want to talk to a doctor before using Potassium as it can cause problems if you take the wrong amount. - It is a salt substitute.
Well, since I'm taking two kinds of BP meds, the PCP naturally told me to limit salt intake, so one of the church board members brought me a little shaker of Morton salt substitute, which is primarily potassium chloride. Maybe the general neuro who prescribed this drug didn't read my med list beforehand? I wasn't especially happy with him to begin with. I am also thinking of sending another fax to the PCP to list all these questions, but it would have to be succinct, of that I'm sure.

Don’t expect a salt substitute to taste like salt. You might need to try a few different brands before you find one that suits your taste. It can take a few months to restore your potassium ratio (remember, you didn’t become deficient overnight), but many people start to feel more energy in a matter of days. If you have a hard time getting your doc to prescribe you potassium supplements (and you probably will) then try what I suggested.
I'm not sure about amounts. Over time, I've grown very aware of my hydration level (it even shows up on the scale by 5+ lbs within a day as water is the quickest way your weight will vary). I can tell by "feel" how hydrated I am and the goal is to keep decent and steady hydration level (especially since the "active" stuff in the blood isn't water itself... but other things that take days to build up).
The spice section of your supermarket look for a salt substitute with potassium chloride. if you use them regularly, you can restore your potassium-to-sodium ratio in a matter of months.

You might need to try a few different brands before you find one that suits your taste.

You can easily test for this by having your daughter use a salt substitute during an episode of swelling. Salt substitutes contain potassium chloride instead of the normal sodium chloride. If that doesn't help, keep track of the foods she eats to see if the swelling correlates with presence or absence of a particular food. Good luck.
Have you had your Potassium levels checked? When we perspire, we deplete our Potassium. I find that taking either Potassium chloride (salt substitute) or Potassium Iodide helps me with "hot flashes" better than hormones or anything else. I just take a little with ice cold water and that seems to cool me off immediately. - Why you sweat is a mystery that only you and your doctor can solve. - But try the potassium, it just might be that it's too low.
My doctors immediately suggested it to me, also offered me MARINOL as a substitute. Specific tests must be run to detect THC.
Potassium chloride is what they sell in supermarkets as salt substitute. I think Morten salt sells it. When you get older is sure is important to keep an eye on your electrolytes. And...........Check with your Doc first.

hi now, thanks to your guideness, I am equipped with full set of instructions to start a new lifestyle , and I've decided to give my body a chance to develop own strategies for one month, prior to visiting my doctors ( I have an excellent health care insurance policy), the idea is psychologically speaking, I feel that any effort I make to develop my own body defenses, makes me adhere to it and improve it further, whereas submitting to pills and medication early makes me feel weak and in abnorma
I see you concern Thanks - but I read some very controversial information on Hyperthyroid and Iodine and my doctor I have really supports the use of iodine w/ hyperthyroidism. If you choose not to use potassium iodide as the "choice" what would you chose? Kelp is not consistant anylonger. It was a good alternative years ago, but just look at what they dump in our waters now?

I needed to stay awake for a class I was taking that was, let's just say, very very dry. So I downed a cold diet coke as fast as I could. It triggered a UTI that lasted almost as long as I've had Lyme. So, for me, 2008 could not end quick enough,,, From diet coke to chronic uti to lyme disease... 2009 will be better for all of us. It just HAS to be!
You said blood analysis wasn't complete, so I am assuming one was done and is not back yet ?? If potassium is low, I am sure vet will suggest a supplement. As far as what to order or get, try to wean your cat off of dry (dry is the worst thing for a cat especially with kidney problems), it might take a while, you can slowly mix in a little can in your cat's dry food ... Opus might have a good suggestion for this as I had no problem with this for my cat.
My brain sometimes feels like it is vibrating. As far as my neck and the back of my head, they both feel sore a lot and sometimes I feel a burning and muscle spasms in the back of my neck. Also, my eyes sometimes feel like I am looking underwater (hard to explain) and I often feel unbalanced (not exactly dizzy).

Will get bk to you when I speak to the vet tony an your support is a great help.
I've been going through it with digestion & AFib episodes. I'm scheduled to have an Ablation Procedure 12/22/2009 but I'm apprehensive because I keep thinking what if it's a digestive issue. I now have a scar on my heart which is normal from the EcoCardiogram I had done in August. I have never been a big soda drinker.
