In those patients with liver disease and cirrhosis, maintaining a diet low in salt (also knows as sodium) can be difficult at times. With all the eating out that America does, this processed food is overloaded with salt and sodium. Thus, it is nearly impossible to maintain a diet low in sodium. Usually, the target goal is to consume less than 2,000 mg per day.
A list of common foods and their sodium content is posted below. Remember to read labels, and determine the “serving size”.
I have posted a new video on our YouTube page giving you all some suggestions on maintaining this low salt diet. Send me your comments.
