What is the cause of hyponatremia in nephrotic syndrome? Patients with nephrotic syndrome will have hyponatremia, the clinical syndrome of patients with nephrotic syndrome, serum sodium 120mmol/L, belong to hyponatremia. There are several reasons for hyponatremia in nephrotic syndrome:

1 long term use of adrenal cortical hormone treatment of nephrotic syndrome, so that the inhibition of adrenocortical function, once the use of corticosteroids, secondary cortical dysfunction occurs.

2 long term low salt or salt free diet leads to lack of salt.

3 poor appetite and vomiting, diarrhea, not only the lack of sodium salts, and the loss of a large number of potassium and sodium from the gastrointestinal tract.

4 use of diuretics caused by loss of sodium and potassium.

5 in the case of low sodium and the introduction of a number of electrolyte free solution can lead to hyponatremia hyponatremia, coupled with increased secretion of antidiuretic hormone, renal tubular absorption of sodium and water can increase the number of diluted hyponatremia.

Causes of hyponatremia in nephrotic syndrome? If there is a lack of hyponatremia and hyponatremia in the presence of nephrotic syndrome, the serum sodium is even lower, or even 115mmol/L. When the serum sodium is too fast, even in the serum sodium 120mmol/L, patients can also occur convulsions, hypotension and plasma hydrogen carbonate and reduce the transition to secondary respiratory causes of acute respiratory alkalosis.
