Moderation is key, says Dr. David Samadi, when it comes to sodium intake. Leading prostate cancer expert, Dr. Samadi, cautions Americans to achieve a healthy balance in their salt consumption. Too much sodium can lead to high blood pressure, but too little can increase cholesterol and triglycerides. Based on the amount of sodium in the processed and fast foods we consume, Dr. Samadi believes we really shouldn’t add salt to our diets. Currently, Americans consume more than double the recommended daily sodium amount. Dr. Samadi states most Americans should consume approximately 2500 mg, and those who are older, have high blood pressure or are of African American descent should reduce that amount to 1500 mg. Adding more fruits and veggies helps achieve balance, too, he adds. Dr. Samadi is Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.

The next day we went to see Dr. Samadi. In walked a tall surgeon, with a great grip when he shook hands.  He proceeded to show us what the male body looked like around the prostate, and all of the work that had to be done to make sure that Ken would come out with a fully functional body, minus his prostate.

Just over a year ago on December 22, 2008 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I met with Dr. Samadi in New York on a recommendation from a close friend. The interview was a decisive turning point in my fortunes.

The surgery was a lifesaver for my wife. Out of hospital in 24 hours, lost the catheter after six days. I was uncomfortable for a few days, but was dry at night after a week! Don't even think about it anymore. 6 weeks post surgery my PSA is 00!! I got my life and my life quality back!
