Iodized salt is thus table salt mixed with a minute amount of potassium iodide,
Dehydration results from the loss of water and important electrolytes from the body, including potassium, sodium, chloride, and many other minerals that are often overlooked.
I am unsure y u r trying to avoid potassium as it is one of the items lacking when u dehydrate...many with chiari may have low levels of magnesium and potassium.
Ways to avoid dehydration is drink water and make sure u r getting ur daily intake of sodium,calcium, potassium, magnesium, chloride,......
Dr said I have low sodium... but potassium is high which is not good for heart .and nerves ....other vitamin levels are normal .
.sodium is low ....But not to the level of giving iv fluid etc .and potassium high but not to the level of treatiing at hospital
If both are low then I can take iodized salt which has potassium iodide but
dr said I have to increase sodium without increasing potassium ..
That is I asked in specific for increasing sodium without increasing potassium as to which salt is the one without potassium iodide etc ..that is which is the one which has only sodium chloride and does not add potassium ..
