Just out of curiosity is it possible to be on a very low calorie diet but not lose weight if consuming too much foods that cause bloating like sodium?

Bloating can be a: Sign of food allergies or gluten intolerance. Have yourself tested to make sure you know what you're allergic too. It's not the calories consumed, but the proportion of carbs to protein that will help you loose weight. Less than 1/2 cup of carbs is good with 2/3 of your plate with organic veges of 5 colors, and 4 oz of protein, lots of purified water after your meal. 1/4 cup fruit/day. Good luck! ...Read more

I have hyponatremia, low chloride and high TSH 12.8.  Sodium went to 116.  Many hospitalizations. Take 10 1gr sodium tabs. Fluid res?

Low sodium: You need to see an endocrinologist (ea) as soon as possible. You are hypothyroid (h) with your high tsh. That could be one cause of your low sodium (ls). Ls is a life-threatening situation. See an e, get your h treated with medicine and you may stop the need for your sodium pills and avoid future hospitalizations. You will also begin to feel better. ...Read more

I have long standing hyponatremia, low chloride plus high TSH 12.8. I have been hospitalized mult times had  seizure.  Taking 10 1gr sodium. Fluid res?

FInd out why: I trust you are not taking a diuretic for some reason, and i trust you do not have inappropriate ADH (vasopressin) secretion due to porphyria or some other illness. Especially, i hope you don't have undiagnosed addison's disease especially with the high TSH (possible schmidt's). Have you been evaluated for one of the syndromes of renal sodium wasting? ...Read more

How much time does it take to recover from hyponatremia (sodium deficiency)?

How much time does it take to recover from hyponatremia (sodium deficiency)?

Water excess: Hi. Hyponatremia is virtually ALWAYS due to water excess, NOT sodium deficiency. Depending on how LOW below normal your sodium is, correction may have to be done fairly gradually to prevent harm. You need to see a competent diagnostician to assess your volume status (fluid overloaded, dehydrated, or normal), and causative conditions, then institute water restriction (or a vaptan drug). Good luck! ...Read more

I have been told by my dr. subscribed 1 gm of sodium chloride 2x's daily for chronic hyponatremia...they cause nausea-vomiting. could I be allergic?

I have been told by my dr. subscribed 1 gm of sodium chloride 2x's daily for chronic hyponatremia...they cause nausea-vomiting. could I be allergic?

Wrong treatment: Hi. The treatment for hyponatremia depends on the patient's volume status (dehydrated, volume over-loaded, or normal volume status) and the underlying cause. The most common cause, SIADH, is treated with water restriction (or one of the new vaptan drugs), NOT by giving salt. Nausea and vomiting can be FROM severe hyponatremia. It wouldn't be a bad idea for you to see an endocrinologist. ...Read more

Ckd patient with hyponatremia. Is it safe to take 650 mg sodium bicarbonate with 40 mg lasix (furosemide) to prevent water retention? Is sodium bicarbonate renoprotective?

Ckd patient with hyponatremia.  Is it safe to take 650 mg sodium bicarbonate with 40 mg lasix (furosemide) to prevent water retention?  Is sodium bicarbonate renoprotective?

Depends: Bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate)) is not reno-protective. However, high acid levels in the blood affect heart function, muscle function and kidney function. Reducing the blood acid level (seen by a rising bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) level or pH level) improves muscle function including the heart which improves kidney circulation. It also allows the kidneys to better control potassium levels. You can help the process by avoiding sodas! ...Read more

Could a runner running in the heat who was drinking a sport drink with only potassium chloride and carbohydrates (no sodium at all) get hyponatremia?

Could a runner running in the heat who was drinking a sport drink with only potassium chloride  and carbohydrates (no sodium at all) get hyponatremia?

Yes. : Any drink that doesn't taste like the ocean is mostly water, regardless of whether it contains sodium or not. Long distance runners can be susceptible to hyponatremia, and risk factors include long distances (marathons, ultra-marathons), women, low body weight, inadequate training, and water loading before and during the race, especially if more weight is gained by water than lost by sweat. ...Read more
