Low Sodium in Blood Increases Risk of Fracture in Seniors

Older adults with even mildly decreased levels of sodium in the blood (hyponatremia) experience increased rates of fractures and falls, according to a study presented at the American Society of Nephrology’s 43rd Annual Meeting and Scientific Exposition.

Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte disorder, usually developing because the kidneys retain too much water.
