    The 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that healthy adults should not consume 2,300 milligrams of sodium a day. For those who have certain conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or kidney disease, or those who are African-Americans or those middle-aged or older should consume less than 1,500 milligrams a day. For perspective, one teaspoon of salt is 2,225 milligrams of sodium. These are the maximum amounts and are only recommendations; your doctor would be the best way to determine your own personal sodium restrictions.
