Excessive Salt Consumption is Bad for Your Health, New Study Confirms

There is a strong linear relationship between sodium intake and blood pressure , but does this relationship extend to an increased risk of mortality? Recent cohort studies have contested this relationship.

“Sodium is hidden — you often don’t know how much of it you’re eating, which makes it hard to estimate how much a person has consumed from a dietary questionnaire,” said Professor Nancy Cook , a researcher in the Division of Preventive Medicine, the Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

“Sodium excretions are the best measure, but there are many ways of collecting those. In our work, we used multiple measures to get a more accurate picture.”

Sodium intake can be measured using a spot test to determine how much salt has been excreted in a person’s urine sample.

However, sodium levels in urine can fluctuate throughout the day so an accurate measure of a person’s sodium intake on a given day requires a full 24-h sample.

Stopping breastfeeding at 2 months due to blood pressure medicine?

Put it this way. If you opt out of taking the medicene you take a higher risk of serious illness and not being able to be their for your child. Their is nothing to feel guilty about. Many parents don't even breastfeed from the beginning. Certain formulas


What blood pressure medication are you needing to take?
There are some that are approved for breastfeeding. I would work with a certified lactation consultant along with your Dr to find one that will work for you that is approved for use in breastfeeding.

How to find margin of error.?

I keep using my formula and I keep getting an error, I'm screwing up somewhere, I need a little bit of help.

Mean systolic blood pressure for a sample of n = 12 men is x = 150, the standard deviation is s = 30 and 95% confidence interval.


The formula is

m ± ts/√n

where m is the sample mean
s is the sample standard deviation
n is the sample size
t is the value for 95% confidence and n - 1 degrees of freedom

The t value
