In brief: No

The syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone is associated with low sodium.
Use of diuretics whether prescription drugs or natural plant-based diuretics have unpredictable effects on serum sodium and may potentially worsen sodium levels which is potentially dangerous. Proper treatment of SIADH is typically provided by an internist, nephrologist, or endocrinologist. And sodium monitoring

I completely agree, we now have significantly more advanced treatment of this disease and it needs to be monitored. If not treated correctly it can be a life-threatening disease. If treated well no concerns.
