My mother was recently and unexpectedly diagnosed with a rare blood disorder that caused clots to form in the vessels leading to and from her liver, which, in turn, has caused liver disease. She has always been the picture of health, and a self-made nutritionist. She was already a very small woman but has lost a considerable amount of weight due to the liver disease. To the point where she cannot afford to lose another pound. I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations on how she could gain weight on a low sodium diet. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
