Sodium Levels

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been doing a lot of research and I am pretty sure that I have read that most people with dysautonomia have low sodium levels. I know that part of the recommended treatment is to increase fluids and sodium intake.

I was diagnosed with Orthostatic Intolerance after a TTT, however I noticed that all of my blood work shows my sodium levels at the very tip top of normal. I was wondering if anyone else with OI/POTS have high sodium levels? And this blood work was all taken prior to the diagnosis and I was not on any kind of high sodium diet.

Thanks!!

Hi Sara,

the sodium levels everyone is referring to are those in a 24 h urine catch, not the sodium in your blood. Have you ever had that kind of test? Of the top of my head, for POTS people the 24 h urine sodium level should be at least 170 mmol/L.

Hope this helps.

Best

Alex
