Side Effects Of Eating Too Much Salt.

Wonder whether you're eating too much salt?







 The more salt you consume, the higher your blood pressure and excessive levels of it in your body over time can increase your risk of osteoporosis (a disease characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue) and other chronic conditions, so it's important to restrict your daily intake to no more than a teaspoon's per day.



You are always using the toilet

Whether at night or during the day, frequent urination is a key sign of excessive salt intake, but it can also be a symptom of a number of other conditions, from an overactive bladder or urinary tract infection to type 2 diabetes. While it's usually nothing to worry about, see your doctor if you notice a change in your normal urinary habits.



You are constantly thirsty

If you often find your mouth gets drier and your thirst is unquenchable, chances are you could be taking too much salt. Like frequent urination, constant thirst can be a sign of other conditions such as type 2 diabetes, so make sure you get it evaluated by a doctor.



Your ankles swell


An excess of salt in your diet can lead to swollen ankles. Swollen ankles can be caused by water retention as a result of eating too much salt, but other conditions can give rise to swollen ankles.



You crave salty, savoury food

If you find yourself craving salty snacks, you could well be consuming too much salt. You will enjoy your food so much more if you cut your salt intake to acceptable guidelines.



You get frequent mild headaches

If you suffer from frequent mild headaches and have no idea what's causing them, you might want to reduce your salt intake. An overload of salt in the diet can lead to dehydration-induced headache symptoms. If cutting down on salt has no effect, your doctor will be able to help you figure out the cause.




Hinder kidney performance

A diet high in too much salt can actually slow the performance of your kidney. Too much salt can increase the amount of protein found in your urine. More protein in your urine is a major risk factor for kidney disease.

Salt... One of the things that killed my father. It affected both his heart and kidney. Now my boyfriend cannot live without it. I am even tired of talking because it reminds me of my late dad.
Salt will make me break up with him if he doesn't stop!

I am victim of swollen ankle but since I cut down on my salt intake everything has gone back to normal. Salt is very important in our food and life. I think everything in life has it side effect. There is an adage that state that too much of everything is bad. Salt is not dangerous to health unless one consume it in excess.

OMG, this must be true.
I take so much salt and I suffer 70% of all listed up there.
Problem is, i can't even make it stop. I am addicted to salt consumption.
Can't drink garri with sugar. It has to be salt and it has to be salty.
I am always adding salt to my meals even when I eat out.
My palms and feet are always moist (some peeps call it sweaty palm/feet)and I hear it's attributed to salt intake.
God help me😳

@Stella
That broth; gemuse Bruhe is fine but you might be lacking in iodine which is necessary for thyroid function.
Most salts are iodized and very few regular Nigerian or German meals have iodine as a natural constituent.

Fab Mum said...

I like salt too. Hubby says I fry with too much salt. Like plantain, potatoes, yam..... But when I taste it, I'm like, where is the salt?? 😲😲😲

Cynthia Iyede said...

Please try and reduce it. I'm working in mine too.

slimqueen said...

Amen. Thanks bloggie

jelly said...

Thanks for sharing, am gonna minimize salt intake

Cynthia Iyede said...

You don't really need to eat iodidized salt to get iodine. There are other natural sources of iodine. The correct salt that the body needs is unrefined sea salt which contains about, 84 trace elements or minerals.

Mrs.R SDK blog Official BFF said...

Anonymous, why are you upset? Of course the salt I use to cook is directly from Himalaya. Some of us prefers unrefined, organic and unprocessed things.

It's a choice!

Be still said...

2 much of salt can shorten person life.
Thanks

BLOGLORD (MVBM) said...

Fab mama, apparently we are together. We need to try and cut down on it going by all of what is said.

My love for sweet things can never make me love salt, I hardly remember to add salt in meals. My dad likes adding raw salt in food, if you like cook salt and give him he must add salt, I think it's now a habit the same way he loves sugar. Nigga is 73 and balling, nothing like high blood pressure, we thank God for grace but pls bloggy reduce your salt intake
