I wouldn't routinely go crazy with the sodium and think, "Well, I'll just increase water to balance it out." I don't know the chemistry, but I know that routine over-consumption of sodium is not good for our bodies in many ways (hypertension, etc.). I personally don't count actual numbers on sodium, but am making wiser choices and subconsciously keeping track.
That being said, when I know that I have had something high in sodium, I do drink a big glass of water afterward. I just try to stay within a reasonable range most of the time.
