If i may ask,just how did you become 'overhydrated' and how do you know that for certain?just wondering thats all.if you had labs done,did anything else besides your sodium level appear not within the norm ranges?FB

Re: Can mild hyponatremia caused by overhydration be treated by...

i haven't actually had tests yet... i'm just assuming I have a mild case... a few days ago i kinda drank a LOT of water... 500 ml per hour at most i guess... and for the next two days i experienced loss of appetite, nausea, light headedness and stomach pain... i still have loss of appetite but the other two symptoms have subsided and i kinda still feel light headed...

You need to be very careful with overhydrating. It can potentially lead to death due to losing necessary salt in your body and so on. You really should go get checked out with a full blood panel. That's really nothing to mess around with, honestly. I would get to a doctor right away to make sure you're ok.

Re: Can mild hyponatremia caused by overhydration be treated by...

Yep,getting a basic metabolic panel done would really be the way to go here.there are things like potassium and magnesium and calcium that are very vital minerals and electrolytes that the body needs to just maintain normal "homeostasis"(stability),they all kind of 'play' off each other to just maintain normal system functions,including your heart rate and rhythems.i don't know what prompted you to just suddenly down a ton of water but if you were feeling that thirsty,you were probably already feeling a bit dehydrated.so it probably wasn't as bad as you may have thought it was,really.our bodys just are naturally made up of alot more water than the average person really realizes.are you still now,today,feeling that same way you were when you drank all that water?if so,i would get the blood work done.if not,things have probably obtained the normal levels by now if you were eating right.taking a simple multi vitamin will also help to replenish the minerals you lost too.if for any reason you just don't feel right,just see your doc for some simple bloodwork.this would really tell you in the most accurate way,where all levels currently are and whether there really is some sort of actual depletion going on.that is what your doc is there for.to take care of you when you don't feel right for some odd reason.good luck and i hope you are feeling better by now.FB
