What a day.Took hubby for blood tests this morning.
Get a call at 4.30 from 111.
Sodium too low at 125 to go straight to A&E.
In A&E 6 hours. More bloods then sodium IV then sent home.
His liver and kidneys apparently are struggling be I referred back to our gp.
No explanation why his sodium was so low.
I know they are extremely busy but they told me they were admitting him over night. Because a possible infection.
The NH S is in a terrible state.
my partner was hospitalised for a week with sodium at 125. He was newly diagnosed so bloods still not great and on high dose water tablets which he then stopped for a while. One year later he is still on water tablets and sodium is normal range so it can go up and down.
Do you know what causes low sodium?I was surprised they didn't keep him in. He is so confused and very tired on top of his back pain
is he on diuretics ? They can cause low sodium but also cirrhosis itself can cause low sodium
Thank you.I have left his bag packed because I suspect it will happen again.
He has been up all night drinking.
Now talking rubbish.
We will be seeing our gp this week soon will ask to try and bring his appointment forward to see the liver specialists, as his appointment is not for 6 weeks.
