Sodium is the component of common salt known as sodium chloride and this has 40% sodium and 60% chloride.This means that your diet should have less than one teaspoon of salt in day.( 1.5 gm of sodium means around 3.75 gm of salt ).

Hi, thank you for posting.
Your symptoms make me think you suffer from Diabetes insipidus. To be sure you need glycemia test to eliminate the possibility you suffer from Diabetes mellitus. You also need electrolyte blood test. If sodium level is high it shows diabetes insipidus. You need urine density test.
