Shake the Salt Habit When You Have Kidney Disease http://www.davita.com/diet-and-nutrition/lifestyle/shake-the-salt-habit-when-you-have-kidney-disease/a/8014

Some people may experience the shakes—shaking the salt too much, that is. And when diseased kidneys cannot effectively process large amounts of sodium (salt), it can build up in your body and cause other complications. So when you have chronic kidney disease (CKD) and are on dialysis, it’s important to kick the salt habit and instead use healthy alternatives to add flavor to kidney-friendly foods.
