Description

Uvolemic hyponatremia is a type of hyponatremia, which is a condition characterized by abnormally low levels of sodium in the blood. Uvolemic hyponatremia occurs when the body has an excess of water relative to the amount of sodium in the blood. This can be caused by a variety of conditions, including kidney failure, heart failure, liver failure, and certain medications. Symptoms of uvolemic hyponatremia include confusion, fatigue, nausea, and muscle cramps. Treatment typically involves restricting fluid intake and increasing sodium intake. In severe cases, intravenous fluids may be necessary.
