V8 Vegetable Juice Low Sodium
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. If you had hyponatremia because you retain too much fluid, then you must use a water pill to get rid of the excess water and improve your serum sodium.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 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?
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!
Mum had Hyponatremia sodium 108 went to ED. It was BP medication since she came out she is confused it is now 131 how long should she be confused?
Confused: Two things: 1: Please call your mother's doctor! 2: Consider a consult with a Psychologist. Please keep me posted. PS: I have two brothers with family in London and I hope to see them in December! Can't wait.
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.
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!See 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.
Low Na V-8: No. Veggies are better but not as convent. What are you trying to do? Happy to do 2nd opinion.
I heard lemon juice in water helps the liver. I have bottled lemon juice that contains some sodium bisulfite and sodium benzoate. Is this ok to use?
Lemon juice: I am not aware of the fact of lemon juice helping the liver. There are tons of claims made but not a signle one substantiated.
I cleared my gut vid sodium sulfate decahydrate dissolved in about 500ml of water. I have green tea and lime juice with honey vil it help detoxifying?
Severe water retention with period, any natural way to alleviate? I already reduce sodium. Does exercise and green tea help? Does cranberry juice?
Water retention: Over the counter medications containing diuretics can help. Avoid caffeine, chocolate, alcohol & salt. Consider omega- 3 fatty acids, magnesium (supplementation or through diet) or black cohosh with your physician's approval. Sipping green tea can help as it has a diuretic effect. So can exercise.
I've been on colace (docusate sodium) (stool softner) for several days...plus fiber supplements and tried taking magnesium citrate and tonight tried drinking prune juice
You have given some: Information but really asked no Question. Please ask a question, give some details as to your constipation please.
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,
Low Sodium in Blood: Although the term hyponatremia means "low sodium in blood", it is caused by abnormal handling of water by the kidneys. Reabsorption of water in the kidneys rely on a hormone called ADH (vasopressin) produced in the brain and there are instances where a high concentration is secreted either appropriately (e.g. severe volume contraction) or inapproprately (e.g. medication causing SIADH (vasopressin)).See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Hi. Hyponatremia (lo Na) can be seen with normal, low, or high circulating blood volume. How it is treated depends on the clinical setting (blood loss/hypovolemia, congestive heart failure, normal blood vol.). If you can specify (e.g., CHF, SIADH, etc), we could be of greater assistance. The standard for SIADH is fluid restriction (sucks) or more recently, a vaptan drug. Good luck.
Los serum sodium: Many conditions can cause hyponatremia (h). Some are, antidepressants, diuretics, cirrhosis of the liver, fluid retention seen in kidney and congestive heart failure, syndrome of inappropriate ADH (vasopressin) secretion addison's disease. Vomiting and too much water intake. H can be a life threatening condition if the sodium gets too low. Go see a doctor to find out the cause and the treatment of h.
Low serum sodium: Electrolyte disturbance in which the sodium concentration in the serum is lower than normal ie usually lower than 135. It is usually an abnormality of water balance rather than sodium balance. Symptoms include confusion, delirium, lack of coordination, and severe cases can be life threatening.See 1 more doctor answer
