My wife is on a very low sodium diet - 1,200 mg per day. She's using FatSecret on her iPad to keep track of her intake, which brings me to the question. We know that you can change the Column Headings that show up next to each meal, but the Nutrition Info panel for each food seems to be fixed at Calories, Total Fat, Total Carb, and Protein. To get the Sodium info you have to tap on the right arrow and wait for the full Nutrition Facts page to load. Is there a way to change what appears on the Nutrition Info panel?

I want to ditto this question! I can set sodium online to be one of the things to view, but can't do it in the app...

I know of no fix for the app, but can give some good rules of thumb to make sure what she is eating is low in sodium. I tell all my cardiac patients the same thing--Anything that is canned or processed is high in sodium--even some of the low sodium products. Eating fresh or frozen is the best. Avoid, lunch meats, soups, pickles, canned foods, sauces, condiments, soda, etc.

I would add my vote for this request too. This is a very useful feature in MyFitnessPal and totally missed in FatSecret. FatSecret should _read_ the data from Apple Health at least about the weigh and ...
