Why do people with POTS syndrome use salt pills?
The debilitating symptoms of Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome can be greatly alleviated with the extra intake of salt. The salt will help keep a POTS patient's blood from losing its nutrients and will keep it flowing in all the right directions. Without enough salt, patients are more susceptible to blood pooling, which triggers all sorts of problems, i.e. feeling faint. Not all patients require extra salt, and many will simply add table salt to their meals instead of take extra pills. Salt pills can be very concentrated, which is a risky method to deal with on top of a patient's other meds and treatments. The most important thing to remember with POTS is to stay hydrated, but only by drinking around 3-4 oz. every 15 minutes, which helps avoid the flushing of nutrients from your body. Too much water at once will rid your body of its usual salt level, which will require that extra intake. You can read more about POTS and its treatments at www.dynainc.org under the "About Dysautonomia" link group in the "Treatment and Prognosis" section. This is an especially helpful site for young patients. Most patients are teenage females, anyways. Fortunately, they can usually withstand the extra salt whereas the rare adult patient would have to be more cautious. I hope this helps you greatly, and that whomever you are searching for gets well soon. I am a POTS patient, and I personally feel much better with plenty of salt and water in my system. One goal to remind a patient is to make sure their urine runs clear throughout the day. This means they are hydrated. Good luck!

Salt can be used to get out pot stains, but its pretty much only effective as an abrasive cleaner. The solid crystals of salt will act sort of like scouring powder to remove whatever they are rubbed on. Stainless steel pots aren't supposed to stain, and if one wishes to clean them effectively, the b…est approach is an abrasive one. Steel wool works, and has long been a favorite. The abrasive pads (they're usually green), either by themselves or adhered to a sponge, that one can pick up at any grocery, hardware or large variety store are a good bet. They work quite well on aluminum, too, but if one is treating aluminum, there are some other tricks that can be applied when cleaning the vessel. I find there is nothing quite like cooking up a batch of spaghetti sauce in an aluminum pot to clean it. The acid of the tomatoes works like magic to remove stains. It's a chemical (the reaction of the acid) approach rather than a mechanical (scouring) approach that has been passed around for a long time. Water in which cream of tartar and lemon juice have been added is recommended by the writers at this site:. http://home.howstuffworks.com/how-to-clean-cookware1.htm (MORE)

Pervasive developmental disorders (autism spectrum disorders) are estimated to occur at a rate of 2-6 per 1000 in the US population. Males are diagnosed at a rate 3-4 times higher than that of females. However, the lower the IQ, the more likely they will be diagnosed at an equal rate. This indicates… that females may be better able to camouflage or have symptoms that are less troublesome to parents and teachers. Asperger's Syndrome is diagnosed at a rate of 2-3 per 1000. Some studies indicate that Asperger's Syndrome is more common than it seems and often goes undiagnosed. Some research suggests that Asperger's Syndrome is more common than autism. Males are diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome at a rate 4-6 times higher than that of females. Males are more likely to react with violence or rages to stress than females, so parents and teachers recognize that there is a problem and thus it is more likely to be diagnosed. So, Asperger's Syndrome is probably underdiagnosed, but is probably at least 2-3 persons of every 1000 in the United States. CURRENT UNITED KINGDOM FIGURES The SNAP Project in the UK, using the best known tests and relaying on the leading personnel, gave the following results: . Lancet, 2006 Jul 15;368(9531):210-5. Prevalence of disorders of the autism spectrum in a population cohort of children in South Thames: the Special Needs and Autism Project (SNAP). Baird, Gillian et al. [Newcomen Centre, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK. email@example.com.UK] Within a total population cohort of 56,946 children aged 9-10 years, we screened all those with a current clinical diagnosis of ASD (n=255) or those judged to be at risk for being an undetected case (n=1515). The prevalence of childhood autism was 38.9 per 10,000 and that of other ASDs was 77.2 per 10,000, making the total prevalence of all ASDs 116.1 per 10,000. A narrower definition of childhood autism, which combined clinical consensus with instrument criteria for past and current presentation, provided a prevalence of 24.8 per 10,000. Services in health, education, and social care will need to recognise the needs of children with s ome form of ASD, who constitute 1% of the child population . . about 1.5 % of children have aspergers but i heard the diagnosis of aspergers is going up and some say one day it is people with out aspergers syndrome who there will be hardly any of . back to the question aspergers is 3 or 4 times as common in males than females but the average for all genders is about 1.5 % arigatou and good bye this question has been answered by aspie (or Luke)so please look at my pages and meet me at my message board Answer: Taking the current World Population Estimate from ibiblio.org which is 6.9 Billion and using the figures from the best current studies (links below) we can see that 1 in every 116 people have a form of autism, and that Asperger's is 7/8ths of the spectrum, giving us a 1:101 ratio. Applying that ratio to the world population will give us a very approximate figure of 68.3 Million people with Asperger's syndrome world-wide . The very latest (but still somewhat controversial) studies suggest figures higher at even 1:36.1 (Baird et al), which would suggest 191 Million world-wide. Perhaps from all of this we can see that Asperger's is rather too common to be comfortably classified as an impairment or disorder, and it may best be described as a 'less-than-rare natural human variation or difference', not too dissimilarly from how we might perceive such other differences as left-handedness, double-jointedness, eccentricity, and entrepreneurship? A: I don't know where the person above got their figures but Asperger's accounts for only about 1/3rd of the Autism Spectrum not 7/8ths, hence approximately 1-in-250 people have Asperger', or about 0.4%. - I've also heard (sorry about the lack of sources) Asperger is more or less common in different populations. For instance that it may be more common among white than black people. Which would make a calculation of the world total number of people with Asperger based on studies in any single country, a problematic task at best. /Erik (MORE)

People with Asperger's disorder tend to lack, or may be deficient in, what is called "Theory of Mind." According to Wikipedia, Theory of mind is the ability to attribute mental states--beliefs, intents, desires, pretending, knowledge, etc.--to oneself and others and to understand that others ha…ve beliefs, desires and intentions that are different from one's own. The Wikipedia article on the subject is provided in a link following this response. Tony Attwood gave an example of a little boy whose mother asked why he did not tell her he loved her. The boy pointed out that a couple of years ago he had told her that, not understanding that she wanted repetition of the statement, despite the fact that nothing had changed since he first said it. I also heard of a husband whose wife explained that he was supposed to give flowers on Valentine's Day to show that he cared about her, so he did--but it was the same bouquet choice every year, since she seemed so happy with it the first time and he wanted to make her equally happy each year. It is not that people with Asperger's disorder are selfish, or that they do not care; it is that they do not always understand what others expect and/or desire. Also, they take your statements more literally than others without the condition. Thus, you often have to explain the true meaning of responses, such as the appreciative, "Oh, you shouldn't have!" For unless the true meaning of that response has been explained to them, they will attempt to make you happy by never doing it again. Autism is a spectrum, and no two members of it are the exact same. Not by a long shot. (MORE)
there are many different types of POTS syndrome. i have a form called dysautonomia. you tend to pass out a lot. its a problem with your blood pressure. you might want to try a medication, drinking more water and eating more salt. there are also other problems that come along with it. if you have it …really bad, you have to be bed ridden. this actually killed people a long time ago. mostly teen girls get it. some people have it for the rest of their life.

The salt combines with the water in the ice. Salt water has a lower freezing point than pure water, so the saltwater has not reached it's freezing point, with the effect that the ice melts.

You really shouldn't. Salt as we know it consists of Sodium Chloride (NaCl). This is not very harmful. However, when salt is stored in an environment with an abundant supply of copper, CuCl2 is formed. This IS harmful to humans.

Salt lowers the freezing point of water, which is why ponds will freeze in the winter, but a salt water inlet of the same size will not. By adding salt to ice (which is just water in it's solid state) it lowers the freezing point of the water, effectively returning it to it's liquid form. Usually, d…ue to cold air being relatively dry, the water then evaporates, which gets rid of the ice altogether. (MORE)

If the definition of nerd being used is "a person who is skilled in a science or technical field, but is boring or socially inept", then some people with Asperger's Syndrome are nerds. But, referring to a person as a nerd can be offensive. Yes, a lot of us are nerds. An awful lot of Aspies are pr…oud nerds and self-identify as such, but the vast majority object to AS being referred to as a disease (because it isn't; it's a disorder) or being "something wrong". AS is a disorder, and it's different to neurotypicals, but it's not wrong . Being a nerd isn't a bad thing. Some people consider it a derogatory term, but in my experience most Aspies do not. Many Aspies develop particular interests that they immerse themselves wholly in, learning everything there is to know about their pet subjects. A lot of us love learning for the sake of learning, which I suppose is similar. We like being nerdy. A lot of us are nerds. Many, if not most, are geeks. Quite a few are even dorks. But almost all of us know that it's how a person is treated that matters, not what label is applied. Someone who uses "nerd" as an insult will get a very different reaction to someone who uses it as praise. (MORE)
People do use salt to de-ice roads. It lowers the freezing point depression in the ice.
salt makes the ice not slippery so you wont slip and fall on your butt. it also lowers the freezing/melting point of water. by lowering the freezing point, the ice will have to raise less degrees or the current temperature will be higher than the new freezing point so the water will just melt.
Some of my friends claim it does help theirs, but I personally wouldn't use it to calm mine. There is a medication for it that is going to be 1. cheaper than pot, and 2. Legal.

A multitude of things, most noteably the preservation of foods.. Remember, it wasnt until the early 1900's that refrigerators, freezers, and iceboxes were invented.. They werent made readily available to the public until the 1930's, and were so expensive that only wealthy families could afford such …a luxery.. It wasn't until the late 40's that most American families were able to own an icebox or a refrigerator.. Prior to that crutial breakthrough, people had no way of preserving food, unless it was winter time.. And in places where it didnt get cold or snow, they had no way of preserving food, besides drying and curing it using salt.. Salt has tremendous antibiotic and anti microbial properties that helped prevent the growth of food born illness' and harmful bacteria.. Its also a diuretic, meaning it helps prevent the retention of water, which ultimately sped up the drying(curing) process.. This process of preserving food by drying and curing it with salt was primarily used with meats.. The process used and end result is very similar to that of modern day beef jerky, or other dehydrated foods, minus the processing and technology.. Hunters would make a kill, dress the kill(skin it for the hide, remove all eatible meat, and even harvest certain bones for tools or jewelery), remove a small portion of meat to be cooked over fire for dinner, then slice the rest into managable portions to be hung up and covered with salt and other herbs or spices, usually near the fire, but not close enough to actually cook the meat.. The low, ambient heat of the distant fire aids in the drying process.. Once the meat was fully dried and cured, it would again be sprinkled with salt, and would then be a readily available food source for months to come, if cured and stored properly.. As storing cured foods in an overly moist place would greatly impact the longevity of the preservation.. There was a period of time where salt was actually more valueable than pure gold, because of its many uses and integral role in preserving food.. So to say salt was a desrired commodity prior to the invention of modern preservation techniques would be a huge understatement! (MORE)
The reason why is that there was such a plentiful amount and they could even trade it for gold 1 lb. of salt= 1 lb of gold.
