Abstract

Keywords: Hyponatremia, Osteoporosis, Mortality

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Hyponatremia is a commonly encountered electrolyte abnormality in clinical practice. It has been common practice not to evaluate or treat so called ‘asymptomatic hyponatremia.’ However it is being increasingly recognized that even mild degrees of hyponatremia are not benign. Mild hyponatremia is associated with subtle changes in gait and associated with increased risk of fractures. The purpose of this paper is to draw attention of clinicians to this condition. Even mild asymptomatic hyponatremia requires evaluation and treatment .
