Hy­pona­traemia is a con­di­tion that oc­curs when sodium – an elec­trolyte that helps to reg­u­late wa­ter around the body’s cells – be­comes ab­nor­mally low. Symp­toms in­clude nau­sea and vom­it­ing, headaches, con­fu­sion, rest­less­ness, mus­cle weak­ness, spasms, seizures, and even a coma. The con­di­tion is treated with in­tra­venous flu­ids with a high con­cen­tra­tion of sodium.
