Wow! Really interesting how much the amount varies from doctor to doctor.

My regular ENT says 1,000, but my Meniere's specialist says that's way too low for good health; he says 2,000. It doesn't really seem to matter, anyway, 'cause I can't tell a bit of difference as long as I don't go OVER 2,000. If that happens.....I have regrets. emoticon

My Dr. said ideally 1400 mg a day is realistic. But if I can go less I should...this is for my Meneire's. I try to eat low sodium everyday and jsut dont eat some things. But if I go out it is near impossible to eat low salt and low calorie.
I also used to do South Beach but have a hard time with that and getting too much sodium in. I liked that diet too.

I aim for a maximum of 1800. My rule of thumb is, only 1 dish a day - one salad, or one meat, or whatever - can have any kind of dressing or sauce on it, and generally if I stick to that, then I don't go over. Because spaghetti sauce and gravy and salad dressings are some of the highest-sodium items going! Just eliminating most of those, except for the specialty no-salt-added versions, cuts one's sodium in half from what it was previously, without even trying.

What measure do you use for daily sodium consumption? The amounts thrown around most often are 1500 mg and 2400 mg; the former being the number to shoot for and the latter being the daily maximum.

Personally I shoot for a max of 1500mg per day, many days I'm under 800.
