There are a number of health issues that would require a person to limit sodium intake. Taking steps to reduce salt consumption can lower blood pressure, prevent the risk of heart disease and kidney failure, reduce the chance of experiencing a stroke, and even soften the harsh effects of diabetes and cirrhosis.

A low-sodium diet can range anywhere from 500 mg to 2000 mg per day. With such a broad general guideline, it is imperative that you ask your doctor how much salt you should be consuming each day.
