  • HI- low serum (blood) sodium can have many causes. It is not something to ignore because it can become very serious if the cause is not identified and treated. Your kidneys in particular need to be evaluated for a start. Are you very thirsty all the time? Urinating more than in the past? Any history of head trauma? Any skin changes? You need a caring doc who will take time to evaluate this problem with you. Good luck.

  • I need a diagnosis for low sodiumCheck into Addison's disease.My husbands sodium level once was 110 which is very dangerous.He ended up having Addisons disease it is when your adrenal glands dont work and you have to take steroids like hydrocortisone to replace the hormones your body doesnt make.You have to take these replacment medication the rest of your life.

  • Last year a blood test revealed that I had very low sodium levels. After undergoing many different tests, I was diagnosed with SIADH. No underlying cause was discovered until after seeing many different doctors one suggested that I have a test for Sleep Apnea. A sleep test revealed that I did have severe Sleep Apnea. Now my sodium levels are back to the normal range and I feel well again. The affect of the CPAP treatment was amazing. Please investigate Sleep Apnea.
