Question: Permenantly stunted Growth?
|Ken07 - Thu Sep 02, 2004 4:04 pm||
Hello i am 16 and wondering if you can permenantly stunt your growth if you didi any of these things..... i was on a srict no salt diet for a year consisting of only raw of the following fruit, nuts, avocados, orange juice and 4 egg yolks a day... i did not now egg yolks had very little sodium... so i was sodium deficient for about a year..i do remember experiencing diareah and i vomited like 6 times in the winter.. can that cause any permanent health damage... to your growth of bones? and can you ever permanently stunt your growth, even if you resume a healthy diet... thanks

I don't think your fears are well-founded. But why would you go on a no-sodium diet?
