Haitian Lady wants to drink Malta with Salt because her blood pressure is low. Wrong!

This morning my cousin walked into the house with a Malta which she was about to drink with salt because, she said, "I feel like by blood pressure is too low."

"Hold on, let me check it for you," I said.

So I checked her blood pressure with a digital blood pressure monitor and not only was her blood pressure not low, it was too high.

She had a 160/110 blood pressure and was about to pour salt on a malt beverage to drink, supposedly to spike her blood pressure which she thought was too low.

I am no doctor but don't think she would be in good shape after that concoction.

If you are a doctor perhaps you could shed some light on this so I can share with her what danger if any she was about to get herself into.
