A. Hyponatremia with a Normal or High Plasma Osmolality Hyponatremia can be present in the absence of hypoosmolality when one of two situations is present. In the most common situation, osmotically active substances unable to enter the cell, such as glucose (in the absence of insulin), mannitol, or glycine (employed in hysteroscopy, laparoscopy, and transurethral resection of the prostate), cause water to move from the intracellular to the extracellular space. This water movement dilutes the extracellular sodium resulting in hyponatremia but, importantly, not hypoosmolality.

A measured plasma osmolality below 270 mOsm/kg H2O strongly suggests a positive water balance and supports the diagnosis of compulsive water drinking. Conversely, a serum sodium concentration greater than 143 mEq/L or plasma osmolality Ͼ295 mOsm/kg H2O suggests diabetes insipidus and effectively excludes compulsive water drinking. Water deprivation testing is useful in differentiating difficult cases. During the water deprivation test, patients fast to ensure that no fluid is consumed during the testing period.
