firewatcher Posted March 6, 2011 Report Share Posted March 6, 2011 How do your docs monitor your sodium intake? My serum sodium ranges low to high depending on the time of day and fluid intake (low on dDAVP and high when it quits in the afternoon and early morning.) I have seen several studies that mention a 24 hour urine sodium of at least 170 mEq/24hr/mg/dl as a target for POTS patients. My 24 hr. urine sodium was 66.8. The last doc I saw wanted me to up my sodium so that I don't have the low serum levels on the dDAVP and try to get my plasma volume up, but I know those levels are going to swing high twice a day.Any experience or words of wisdom on how to gauge this? I've never tried florinef and my other docs are hesitant due to kidney issues. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
