I have tried drinking almost no water (instead milk, oj, coffee) and increasing sodim intake. Not sure if this is working for me. I feel much better after drinking a glass of ice-cold water. There are times now that I feel like ***t and it was simply because I was dehydrated. Before discounting this post as being as useless, clearly the answer is to just give my body what it needs, I am just trying to understand the science here. On all of my Metabolic panels, sodium is always near the top while potassium is chronically low. Have I been hurting my health by consuming so much sodium without really needing it? As a note, I was hypothyroid but am now on medication that’s sits my levels near the top of each range.
