Do Not Want: Evening Light-headedness|
Thanks for chiming in! I usually shop and cook low sodium because my husband has high blood pressure, then add salt to taste in my own food. I'll get some more salty things just for me.
Will this make it more likely for my feet to swell up though?

Salt does make you retain fluid, so yes, it will make your ankles swell if you retain enough of the fluid. However, before that happens, your blood pressure will go up. It's all about finding a happy medium :)
The folks suggesting Gatorade are totally right too. It's another way of getting salt plus fluid in you. (electrolytes = salt)

I just sent you an anonymous comment, but it was me.
