- Dear Jody
Here are a couple of sites I noticed that may help you. Please let me know
if they are of any assistance. The Shopfast site may be limited in its
usefulness to you by the fact that it is Australia-based, but may give you
Also can I get details about your "Endless Water" newsletter? I am the
editor for the newsletter for the Australian Pituitary Foundation and am
always interested in letting our members know of any other resources that

Hello everyone. Up until now, I've ignored (more or less) the sodium
content in foods my son (who has NDI) was eating, on the grounds that
he wasn't eating enough to make a difference. Well, now he's eating
very well (he's 3 1/2 years old) and the high-sodium diet is clearly
making a difference in his water intake and urine output! We're in the
process of limiting and lowering the sodium in the foods he eats.
What are your suggestions for the lowest sodium brands of hotdogs--the
lowest I've found is an astounding 500+ mg sodium per serving! And
chicken nuggets (200+ mg sodium/serving).
I'm looking for someone to write a food column on low sodium cooking
and foods for Endless Water. The column would be quarterly (as is
Endless Water), and would run about 325 words. Anyone interested?
Email me if you are! I really need help with Endless Water.
I'm also looking for your stories for Endless Water. We're running
out! What experiences have you or your sons or brothers had to deal
with? What have you learned along the way?
Again--email me at elison@... if you're interested in writing for
Endless Water. BTW, the "spring" issue will be mailed soon, to be
followed by the summer issue shortly thereafter.

Hi there! There is a lady in QLD who has no support. Her son has DI.
I know in Australia we don't have a DI Foundation, so I was wondering
if the APF that you run includes parents of children with DI? Or if
you know of an organisation that I can refer this lady onto? Your
help is most appreciated.
