Who should avoid taking sodium chloride as a treatment?

You shouldn't take sodium chloride (also the chemical name for table salt) as a medical treatment if you have high sodium levels in your blood and are following a low-sodium diet. Other conditions -- including high blood pressure, heart failure and liver or kidney problems -- may also make it unadvisable for you to take sodium chloride, so be sure to discuss this with your doctor. Certain medications may interact with sodium chloride, so talk to your doctor about any drugs or supplements you're taking before starting treatment.
