You don't indicate what blood tests are abnormal (such as sodium, potassium blood levels) and how low they are. In addition, was any medical reason for these results looked for, as to why you might be having this situation? In the absence of some sort of medical condition (not HIV infection), a normal diet should be sufficient to provide the salt that you need.
