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.

It was Dr. Samadi himself wanting to speak with both of us to find out exactly what we needed and how he could help us. Dr. Samadi was a true hero in this story. I love him for what he did and would recommend him to anyone who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Dr. Samadi made it very clear as to his vision of me being cancer free and at the same time he considers quality of life as being extremely important. He portrayed these feelings with a real sense of commitment and confidence. I felt as if he directly spoke to me in a confident and understanding manner.
