Brief Answer:
Yes, it can be due to an associated Addison's Disease

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,
Thanks for using HCM.
Salt craving may indicate an underactive adrenal glands called Addison's disease or a Kidney disease called Bartter syndrome.
Sometimes Addison's disease may be associated with other conditions like hypoparathyroidism which you are suffering from.

You can discuss with your doctor about a possible associated Addison's disease that might be causing salt cravings.

I hope that answers your question.

With kind regards,
Dr.barani
