Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.
The treatment for hyponatramia is not water
If his sodium is 130 then usually water restriction is the treatment
Drinking lots of water will make it worse
His BP of 122/54 is within the normal range, it is not high
I cant read in this format
So you are unable to see my replies?
I can change the format if you cannot see them
Can you switch? My ? is what is the treatment? What are "dos and don'ts"? You didn't say anything about HR.
I will switch the format
Thanks....He has been low sodium,like this, for years. How dooes one restrict water...drink 4 instead of 8 ozs? What tests should be done to find the underlying cause?
Can using salt with his meals cause the BP to rise if he has low sodium?
SO, since he has HTN which is somewhat controlled the docs should NOT be telling him to salt his food?
What is 800ml in ozs?
Also, on his bloodwork, his TSH was 7.16 but his T4Free is 1.1
What does all this mean?Thanks!
