Sco24, how's your blood pressure? Have you had your sodium/potassium checked lately? I'm not so sure about secondary AI, but for primary AI, salt supplementation is very helpful. We avoided salt in our household for 30 years because most people get too much in our culture. A good way to know if you're getting enough or too much is from your BP (a pretty instant measure) and sodium/potassium testing. Sodium level in isolation is good, but the Na/K ratio is good to know, especially in light of potential adrenal issues.

If you have PAI, giving in to salt cravings is a good thing... unless you have blood sugar issues and eat your salt on simple carbs. I can only take so much salt on my food, so I supplement with salt tablets to reduce the salt cravings and the temptation to eat salty snacks.
