Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, July IT, 1973 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Salt substitutes satisfactory Dear Dr. Lamb In my local paper there was an arti- cle describing how to make substitute cream products and other recipes that you suggest- ed. Among the ingredients mentioned is salt. I am 87 years old and on a salt-iree diet be- cause of an eight year old heart condition and congestive heart failure. Do you consider the salt substitutes on the mar- ket safe to use? I am referring to those containing potassium chloride, monopotassium cholo- r i d e, monopotassium gluta- mate, glutamic acid and tri- calcium phosphate. As my diet is rather restricted, your ad- vice would be highly appreci- ated. Dear Reader Yes, these salt substitutes are quite sat- isfactory as far as your health is concerned. The reason salt is restricted is to eliminate the sodium. Ordinary table salt is sodium chloride. The salt sub- stitutes literally substitute po- tassium for sodium. In the presence of heart failure and conditions where fluid accumu- lates, the body hangs on to so- dium and thereby retains fluid. You could make these same re- cipes, or use any other recipes that call for salt, and use the salt substitute in its place. It will taste different. Sodium is in a lot of our nat- ural foods. This includes or- dinary milk and dry milk pow- der. Many animal products, in- cluding beef, poultry and fish normally contain sodium. Doc- tors often compromise on how severe the sodium restriction of the diet has to be and use pills, which literally elim- inate sodium through the kid- neys to help control the prob- lem, if the condition warrants it. Many patients get along very well by just not adding any salt in their food preparation or by using a salt substitute, such as you have mentioned. If this and the medications the doctor pre- scribes still won't handle the problem, then it may be neces- sary to consider eliminating a number of foods that normally contain sodium. It's preferable not to have to go this route un- less it's necessary because it eliminates so many important nutrients that the body needs. Dear Dr. Lamb Please explain what peritonitis is and what causes it. Dear Reader The ending "ids" Is used in medicine to mean inflammation The peri- toneum is the clear-like lining of the abdominal cavity. You can think of it as a thin sheet of plastic wrapping paper that's spread all over the inner sur- face of the abdominal cavity and coats the outer walls of the abdominal organs. It is made up of specialized cells. When it becomes inflammed, one has peritonitis. A common cause for inflam- mation of this membrane is a rupture of an organ within the abdominal cavity, for exam- ple, a ruptured The infected material inside the ap- pendix can be spread over the lining of the abdominal cavity and cause the inflammation. Perforation of an ulcer, or any other event which allows ma- terial from the digestive tract to get into the abdominal cavity can cause it. When the appen- dix is first inflammed, the in- fected area may touch the peri- toneal lining of the inner ab- dominal wall and cause a lo- calized inflammation. This con- tributes to the tenderness and eventually even the stiffness or rigidity caused by muscle guarding over the appendix re- gion.

With nine cards missing the queen, there is a slight edge in playing for the drop rath- er than the finesse. The re- sult was usually down one. t Moyse is a man who tices what he preaches. When he held the South cards, he elected to force on the first round in his four- card major. At bis next turn, he showed his second suit and, after receiving preference back to hearts, he decided that North proba- bly held the queen of that suit When Blackwood elicit- ed the information that his side held all the aces and kings, South selected the grand slam in the 4-3 major fit Declarer won the opening club lead and immediately ruffed a club low in dummy. The ace and king of dia- monds were cashed, and a third diamond was led. In the hope of promoting a trump trick for his partner, West raffed with the nine. Declarer ovemiffed with dummy's queen and cashed iba ace of a safe- guard against a singleton queen in the East band. Declarer now drew four rounds of trumps. When East turned up with four hearts, the count of hand was complete. East was proved to have started with four hearts, five diamonds aad three clubs. Therefore, be eouJd not have more than one spade. The finesse ia that suit was a proven cer- tainty, aad the grand slam was cafe. Declarer. scored three spade tricks, four hearts, diamonds, two clubs and ruffs in ths dummy.
