Sodium is an electrolyte that plays a crucial role in maintaining blood pressure. Along with potassium and chloride, it regulates fluids and acid-base balance in the body. It is also involved in nerve transmission and muscle contraction, including the heartbeat.

Deficiency Symptoms
Sodium excess is a more likely scenario, but profound sweating, fever, diarrhea, fasting and very low-salt diets can result in symptoms like muscle twitching, dehydration, memory loss, nausea, poor concentration and loss of appetite. In rare cases, sodium deficiency can lead to shock due to decreased blood pressure.

Toxicity Symptoms
High sodium diets, common in modern society, may lead to water retention and hypertension.
