I did some research on the topic of abnormal salt craving, and this was the FIRST paper on pubmed (a national respository for scientific literature).

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18514747?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum

One thing that I was struck by, and I think you should be aware of, is that I was taught that there was no such thing as a salt craving. We would be driven by thirst, but not salt.

If your doc kept saying "this is textbook" then perhaps he needs to read a newer textbook, as I clearly needed to do.

If you would like to read the entire article just babblemail me and I can get it to you. I don't think it is freely available, only the abstract.
