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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Freezing is to mean turning liquid into solid form by lowering the temperature. Water begins to freeze at 32 degree f or 0 degree celsius. Freezing reduces the movement of the substance/object--solid. Also commonly used in daily communication--police says to a perpetraitor "freeze" and hopefully the bad boy/girl stays solid/still (just for fun :-)). Have ...Read more
Multiple: There are many different types of treatment. However the treatment varies depending on what type of hyponatremia you have. If you have hyponatremia from dehydration, you must have a liquids that have salt (ckn broth or normal saline) in them.

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?

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

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?
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?
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
Too little sodium? Started eating low fat raw vegan and wondering if my sodium levels will drop too low. Consume around 100-150mg a day.
MAY NEED MORE SODIUM: In a nov. 22, 2011 jama article: a mcmaster university study suggests that both high and low levels of salt intake may put people with heart disease or diabetes at increased risk of cardiovascular complications. Their study is the first to report a j-shaped association between sodium intake and cardiovascular disease. The study is interesting because too little sodium intake may be harmful!-wow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
