I used to crave salt sometimes so badly that I would eat it directly from the shaker. Since they found my thyroid is underactive and put me on synthroid I have not craved salt as bad but still cannot get near the limit the nutrition planner has set for me. My body craves the iodine in the salt to produce thyroid hormones is my theory why I crave salt. I don't have a blood pressure problem and my partner actually has low blood pressure so I am not going to focus so much on this especially after reading this article LEMOW72 posted
since my whole family has had cardiac problems for generations. I think it all depends on each person and their situation. I think I will not focus on this so much and just keep an eye one my intake not to go overboard. Too much of anything can't be good either.
