    Hi Louise. I gave up table salt a while back and my BP went down. Sodium is an enemy of mine since my kidney problems and 2 surgerys in my life for a large stone in one and then years later in the other. My Dr. said away with table salt! I also drink tons of water to keep the only kidney I have left flushed at all times. I wish I would have known more sooner to get rid of table salt. Thank you for the information.
