anyone know? References to single event of low sodium (112) contributing to...

kidney damage...

I have been hospitalized twice for low blood sodium...once it was 112 and once it was 115. As I understand those measures...this is not good! The first time was in 1987 and the second time was in 2001. I am trying to find indicators that single incidents like these could contribute to the decreased kidney functioning I have now. GFR 59, potassium 5.9, creatinine clearance 76, creatinine 1.3, protein total 8.6...

oh! and I am 46 yoa and family history of heart disease as well.

It is very doubtful that your low sodium was what caused your eventual decline in kidney function; it usually is the obverse. There might not ever be any answer for your low sodium level so long ago, but it is not completely out of the question to have already had kidney issues that long ago. Some disease states can take decades to arrive at clinically significant levels.
