    HEED or GU without Sodium?

    Hi,

    I need to replace electrolites and potassium on a regular basis, but my body cannot tolerate sodium. Does anybody have a packaged or home made solution to solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance,
    -Tanguy Frame

    What do you mean your body cannot tolerate sodium? You have to have sodium or you will die of hypoanetremia.

    If you want, just get some Morton Salt Replacer (potassium chloride) and make your own sugar/kcl drink mix.

    Thanks - I mean any more sodium that what I normally get in the course of a day. I can't take the additional sodium in an energy drink.
