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.

Adrenal fatigue can cause salt cravings.
