Hyperhydrosis: Fluid balance is tricky. One mustaumtain a salt balance to hold any water that one drinks. Body weight divide in half should be a good estimate of your daily intake of water. Urine should be clear, salt should be present in diet. No caffeine for sure! if you still have your symptoms you should see your physician as there are other causes of salt or other mineral imbalances. Hope this helps. ...Read more

How mg of sodium can help keep your levels up on 200 mg spirolactone? I sodium is low, but not want to have TOO much sodium to mess with my hkpp.

Hyponatremia: Your measured sodium in the blood is a "water problem(excessive)", the reasons needs to be determined. decreasing the water/fluid is the key. Depending on the sodium value, would see a Kidney doc, and a urine and blood test are needed. Aldactone (spironolactone) can cause low sodium in the blood. But key is measured sodium is a water problem and not a salt issue. Hope this helps. best to talk to your MD. ...Read more
