Can hyponatremia be prevented?

If you have certain underlying medical conditions, particularly involving the kidneys, heart, lung, liver or brain, hyponatremia is more likely. You can lower your risk for hyponatremia by following your treatment plan and restricting your water intake to levels recommended by your doctor. Also, notify your doctor of any new symptoms immediately. Monitoring must include blood tests.
