Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.Hyponatremia (British: hyponatraemia) is an electrolyte disturbance (a disturbance of the salts in the blood) in which the sodium (Natrium in Latin) concentration in the plasma is lower than normal (hypo in Greek), specifically below 135 mEq/L. . The large majority of cases of hyponatremia occurring in adults result from an excess amount or effect of the water retaining hormone known as Antidiuretic Hormone commonly abbreviated as ADH. Hyponatremia is most often a complication of other medical illnesses in which either fluids rich in sodium are lost (for example because of diarrhea or vomiting), or excess water accumulates in the body at a higher rate than it can be excreted (for example in polydipsia (rarely) or syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone, SIADH). Regarding sodium loss as a cause of hyponatremia, it is important to note that such losses promote hyponatremia only in an indirect manner. In particular, hyponatremia occurring in association with sodium loss does not reflect inadequate sodium availability as a result of the losses.
