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
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
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
How much water would a person have to drink over a period of 12 hours in order to develop hyponatremia? I've drank about 9 cups of fluid in 12 hours, but I feel like that's too much. Also, I have a mildly low K level (3.2), so is that too much H2O?
Hyponatremia is: Very uncommon with just an episode of vomiting unless it is very prolonged, and by then most people would have sought medical attention. Heavily salted water can lead to further GI problems and further dehydration. Gatorade, pedilyte and similar preparations are safer and more effective, ...Read more
No: Margarine is an oil that is chemically altered through a process called hydrogenation. In that form, when your body tries to use it, damage occurs within your cells. You should avoid all foods that have hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils. Naturally saturated fats (solid at room temperature) like butter and tallow are better to use. ...Read more
Processed Plant Fats: Margarine is processed plant fat. Vast majority of c-c bonds in all fats, plant & animal, are single, aka saturated (no room for more hydrogen side atoms). If double bonds (unsaturated) present & converted to single bonds by industrial hydrogenation lacking control: ½ cis, ½ trans; all living cells do cis-. Promoted for?

Diet: Dietary effects of foods are complex. Butter is a high fat food, but so are some kinds of margarine. The best course for most of us is to use either product sparingly. Using a lot of margarine or a lot of butter is likely to be a problem. A low fat margarine may be better than butter in the same quantity used; but actual rigorous outcome studies are lacking. ...Read more
