  Get rid of salts forever

Have you ever heard of the problem of salt build-up in the body? Do you know what she's treating? Here are some ways to get rid of salts once and for all.


The accumulation of salts in the body may occur as a result of the accumulation of any type of salts in the blood, such as sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and others. Can salts be eliminated once and for all? Here are the details.

Salt levels in the body are normally fluctuating, and there are many reasons why this may lead to the loss of a large percentage of fluid in the body.

A change in the level of water in the body, whether by increasing or decreased it, can affect the proportion of salts in the blood. 

The level of salts in the body can rise either rapidly and within 24 hours, or slowly over time. It should be noted that the speed of the high level of salts in the body and the underlying cause will help your doctor to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for the patient.

Of course, the treatment of this problem and the elimination of salts depend on the underlying cause, the unit of injury and the type of salt that has accumulated in the body.

Here are the types of salts that may accumulate in your body and ways to get rid of them:

  Accumulation of sodium in the blood

A condition known as Hypernatremia, the condition may not be associated with any symptoms, especially if the height is slight, but if the height is significant, it is important that some methods are applied in order to get rid of salts.

The main goal of treatment is to raise the level of fluid in the body in order to equalize its sodium content, and this can be achieved in several ways, including:

  •  Increased fluid intake: Since the main reason for the increase in salt content in the body is low water content, replacement of the missing can help re-balance the body's sodium. This treatment is usually used if the body's sodium content is not too high.

  •  Intravenous drip: In some cases the blood sodium level may be very high, and may be accompanied by severe and serious symptoms, and the patient is taken to the hospital.
 In this case, the infected person is given an intravenous solution in order to speed up the process of restoring the balance of salts in the body.

  •  Avoid diuretics: These substances increase diuretics, i.e. the amount of fluid the body loses is higher, which negatively affects this condition.

  •  Determine the cause of the infection: Your doctor will identify and diagnose the cause of the infection in order to treat it appropriately.

Note: If sodium builds up or increases in the body, it is important to gradually compensate for it and not to introduce large amounts of fluid at once into the body, which may cause fluid retention.

High levels of potassium in the blood

It is a condition that is higher than normal in the blood, known as hyper potassium. Potassium is important for the functioning of nerves and muscle cells.

The normal rate of potassium in the blood is 3.6-5.2 mmol/L, and its height of 6.0 mmol/L may be dangerous and require medical intervention.

The method of treatment and medical intervention of the high level of potassium in the blood depends mainly on the severity of the height and the underlying cause.

Treatment of hyper potassium in the blood is summarized as follows:

  •  In minor and moderate cases it is important to follow a low potassium diet
  •  Stop taking any medication that was the reason for this rise.
  •  Intravenous injection of glucose, insulin or sodium bicarbonate to encourage the transfer of potassium to the cells of the body.
  •  Protect the heart through intravenous calcium injections.
  • Increase the amount of potassium coming out of the body through urine through diuretics with the need to monitor the patient's condition.

 High levels of chloride

Chloride is important in maintaining the body's pH, fluid regulation and other things, and its normal human level of 98-107 mEq/L. 

If the chloride level  (Hyperchloremia) is high, it may be caused by a kidney problem, diabetes or severe dehydration.

What are the methods of treating high chloride? The answer, of course, depends on the cause of the rise, but generally includes:

  •  Moisturize the body in case of dehydration in order to increase the level of fluid in it
  •   Stop some medications if they are the cause of the infection
  • If kidney problems are caused, your doctor will work to determine the most appropriate 
treatment according to the injury.

  •  Some cases may be treated with sodium bicarbonate
  •   Avoid diuretics such as coffee and tea, especially if dehydration is the cause of the infection.
  • Control blood sugar levels for diabetics
  •  Drink an appropriate amount of fluids.

 High magnesium level

Magnesium helps promote bone health and heart function as well as other things, most of which are stored in bones.

High level of magnesium (magnesemia) is a rare health condition. Magnesium levels are normal in the body between 1.7-2.3 mg/dL, and high levels mean that they exceed 2.6 mg/dL.

How is this condition treated?

The underlying cause of high magnesium level in the blood must be determined.
Intravenous calcium injections in order to reduce symptoms associated with high magnesium such as arrhythmias.
Help the body get rid of elevated magnesium levels through urine by using intravenous diuretics.
In some cases, dialysis may be required.

 High calcium levels

This condition is known in English as Hypercalcemia, and its occurrence can cause muscle weakness and kidney stones, affecting the functioning of the heart and brain.

The infection is usually caused by hyperactivity of parathyroid glands in the neck, as well as other causes such as cancer, taking certain medications, or overtaking vitamin D and calcium supplements.

Here are ways to treat high blood calcium levels:

  •  If the injury is minor, i.e. there is a slight increase in calcium level, your doctor may leave you under observation without interference.
  •  Intravenous feeding to increase fluid in the body and thereby reduce calcium.

  •  When calcium levels are high, your doctor may ask you to take certain medications to treat the cause behind them, including Calcitonin, the same hormone that the thyroid gland secretes, and helps reduce calcium loss and maintains good levels of it.
  •  The patient may undergo surgery to remove one of these glands, after identifying the affected gland.

 High level of sodium bicarbonate

A high sodium bicarbonate in the body can increase the basal degree of blood, which may be associated with conditions ranging from mild to serious, such as difficulty breathing.

The treatment aims to restore the balance of sodium bicarbonate levels in the blood, pertaintos may be by treating the underlying cause of this infection.

Treatment usually involves drinking liquids and beverages containing electrolytes and in some serious cases may need medical intervention.
