Electrolyte Question

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has played around with electrolyte mixtures?

Is sodium more important than other electrolytes (potassium, magnesium, chloride, ect)?

Or is a wider range of electrolytes better?

I was prescribed 2000mg of salt by my doctor, but I have psoriasis and occasional elevated liver enzymes (lots of salt is supposed to be bad for both of those).

I've been playing around with using 1000mg salt, adding salt to everything I eat and using an electrolyte solution in my 80oz+ of daily fluids (water + just enough juice to flavor it up so I'll drink more). It seems to be evening out but I'm also not sure I have the right ratio.

I'm wondering how much sodium I can replace with other electrolytes, if it's logical to try to offset the sodium load that way so I'm not taking in too much salt but still keeping my blood volume high enough to avoid POTS symptoms.

Anyone have any ideas? Tips? Tricks? Ect?

Thanks in advance!

You probably ought to ask your doctors about this question, given the other problems that your salt intake could affect.

Will do! I see the specialist in a couple weeks.

I'm actually super excited to see my doctors right now because everything's going really well. I haven't had an attack in like a week or two! And my skin is clearing up!

I'm feeling SO JAZZED! 😃
