Enalapril given to elderly patients is reported to cause hyponatremia. Excessive water drinking can be identified from the history and the presence of polyuria, but large volumes of water may be inadvertently given in the ICU. Adrenal insufficiency and hypothyroidism should be considered if there are features suggesting these disorders. Hyponatremia has been associated with hospitalized AIDS patients. Volume depletion from gastrointestinal fluid losses and SIADH were the most common causes and there was an increase in morbidity and mortality of those with hyponatremia.
C. Hyponatremia With Normal Extracellular Volume Hyponatremia in association with normal extracellular volume is seen with psychogenic water ingestion, decreased solute intake, and, most commonly, the syndrome of inappropriate secretion of ADH (SIADH). Massive intake of water rarely results in severe hyponatremia if ability to excrete water is unimpaired. However, decreased solute intake as described above limits the maximum volume of water that can be excreted even when urine is maximally diluted.
When serum sodium is extremely low, hyponatremia is manifested by altered mental status (hyponatremic encephalopathy), seizures, and high mortality. Correction of severe hyponatremia must be done carefully and in a controlled fashion to avoid further complications. In the absence of hyponatremia associated with normal or increased tonicity (see below), low serum sodium indicates excess total body water for the amount of solute (dilutional hyponatremia). In normal subjects, this condition would initiate compensatory mechanisms that would facilitate rapid excretion of water and correct the imbalance.
