To convert sodium (Na) in mg to mEq you divide the value by the molecular weight of sodium (23 mg/mM). In this case for example 157 mg of sodium equals 7 mEq. Usual low sodium diets contain less than 3000 mg or 130 mEq of sodium.

Hold on here, I need to do some heavy calculation ... okay, done. One tablespoon of table salt contains 1.0 tablespoons of sodium chloride. Since the atomic weight of sodium chloride is 58.5, 1 meq of salt is 58.5 mg. Since one tablespoon = 14.8 ml and salt weights 1.02 g/ml, one tablespoon of salt weighs 15.2 g or 15,200 mg. So one tablespoon of salt = 15,200 / 58.5 = 260 mEQ.
