I was told a few months back by my regular doc that my blood sodium was quite low & that I needed to increase my salt intake. I have had serious salt cravings, most of my life, to the point of going into the kitchen, grabbing a salt shaker & pouring out a nice little pile of salt into my hand, devouring it!!! Of course, after that I have a huge craving for a nice tall glass of water!!!! smilewinkgrin

My question?? Does anyone else have these intense salt cravings? Or am I showing those weird little habits of mine again? smhair

BTW- I will be having my blood sodium levels checked at the end of this month to see if my indulging in my salt cravings has helped any.
