What’s the recommended daily sodium limit for someone with diabetes?

The USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend restricting sodium to less than 1,500 mg per day for higher-risk groups, including people with diabetes. Decreasing the amount of sodium in your diet may help lower your blood pressure which, in turn, may help lower your risk of heart attack or stroke—both common diabetes complications. One way to reduce sodium? Flavor your dishes with fresh herbs!

Be sure to talk to your doctor about the right diet for you.
