Low sodium level
Hello! My father (75 years) was hospitalised and given IV last week for low sodium levels due to Tazloc CT. He was discharged on Wednesday. Today his sodium level is 120 so he's been asked to start natrise 15 mg 1/2 tablet at bedtime. I need to know is this correct treatment? Is it safe to take this tablet at home? By when can his sodium level be expected to be normal? Pls help

Yes it is correct. We all need right balance of electrolytes like sodium potassium etc. They should neither go high nor low. You need to keep his electrolytes under observation by regular blood test.
