How To Ease Hyponatremia?

Q:
How to ease hyponatremia?

A:
Physcial exam alone can not be sufficient to diagnose hyponatremia accurately. In order to correctly confirm low blood sodium, you will need to take blood tests and urine tests.

Hyponatremia treatment aims to solving the underlying causes for hyponatremia. If your condition is moderate, your doctor might suggest you to cut fluids accordingly. If you have severe and acute hyponatremia, your treatment will include:

  • Intravenous fluids. Your doctor may recommend IV sodium solution to slowly raise the sodium levels in your blood.
  • Medications. You may take medications to manage the signs and symptoms of hyponatremia, such as headaches, nausea and seizures.
