Diagnostic approach to hyponatremia. ) urine sodium concentration, the kidney is functioning normally by conserving sodium in response to ECF volume depletion. This occurs with extrarenal fluid losses. Conversely, if the urinary sodium concentration is greater than 20 mEq/L in a hypovolemic hyponatremic patient, the kidney is not responding appropriately to the ECF volume depletion, and renal losses of sodium and water must be considered as the likely cause of the hyponatremia. 1. In a hypovolemic hyponatremic patient with a urinary sodium concentration of less than 10 to 20 mEq/L, a gastrointestinal (or “third space”) source of sodium and water losses must be sought.

Appear to relate to CNS function. Correction of hyponatremia with the V2 receptor antagonists has been shown to improve mental function. Other studies have shown improved gait when raising severe sodium concentrations in “asymptomatic” hyponatremic patients. Because falls and fractures, particularly in the elderly, are more common in hyponatremic patients, there are other clinical implications for using these V2 receptor antagonists to treat hyponatremia. These relatively safe antagonists, therefore, have potential to more effectively correct acute and chronic hyponatremia when compared with severe fluid restriction, demeclocycline, or urea.

If fluid intake has been restricted, the patient with Addison disease may not present with hyponatremia, and hyperkalemia may not be present if the ECF volume depletion is not severe. Therefore, a high index of suspicion is necessary to make the diagnosis of primary adrenal insufficiency. These patients may present with nonspecific symptoms such as weight loss, anorexia, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. d. Osmotic diuresis obligating anion and cation excretion is another major diagnostic consideration in the hypovolemic hyponatremic patient with a urinary sodium concentration greater than 20 mEq/L.
