In brief: 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.
