What can cause someone to keep losing sodium at dangerously low levels?
My granny is in the hospital. She had the flu and pnemonia (she is over that now). She is confused, sometimes agitated, *******, and hasnt been eating much. Her Bp was over 200 for over a week (systolic 200 dystolic stayed between 68-98),.. her normal bp is (systolic) 97-125)Her Sodium levels were so low they said she could of went into a coma. They put her on a sodium chloride drip for about 4 hrs,. took her off it. Now (since about 6 am) they said theyre going to have to put it back in her. Any ideas?o btw,.. she has hyper thyroidism
