I think I have ascites (from fatty liver disease). I've been working on my liver for over a year and the "visible" things are improving. Haven't had my enzymes checked lately though. I read that ascites "triggers a series of disease-producing changes that weaken the kidney's ability to excrete sodium in the urine". Therefore, my questions is: since Lugol's gets rid of bromine, chlorine, etc. would it be any help getting rid of sodium?
