Question Sodium in relation to nosebleeds

Will consuming excess amounts of sodium trigger nosebleeds? And if so, why is that?
Thanks ahead of time!

Re: Sodium in relation to nosebleeds

I would wonder more about a B6 or coenzyme Q10 deficiency as causing frequent nosebleeds.

Re: Sodium in relation to nosebleeds

If it is blood pressure, you're probably somewhat dehydrated. The biggest cause of high blood pressure (in my opinion) is dehydration. I have been told drinking a quart of water for every 50 pounds of body weight, plus one quart a day is the minimal one should drink (and if you're sick you should drink one more).

Re: Sodium in relation to nosebleeds

Thanks for the responses! It's very much appreciated. I think it's probably due to dehydration and excess amounts of sodium... since sodium can cause dehydration, right?

Re: Sodium in relation to nosebleeds

Actually sodium does not cause dehydration, lack of water and poor water metabolism and fluid utilization cause dehydration. If you cut your sodium back too much you can cause problems just as much as if you don't drink enough water. I cut my sodium intake way back 24 years ago and when I finally tested (kinesiology) for how much I should be taking in, for about two months I needed to take in two teaspoons of salt a day. Now I am not nearly so stingy with the salt and my body is much happier for it. But I do drink a lot of water too.
