I seem to be seeing a lot more hyponatremia. Some of these patients are taking diuretics, while others have psychogenic polydipsia or syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH). Others have no known cause. Is there an explanation for this increase?
Paricalcitol, a vitamin D analogue, may be an effective adjunctive therapy to renin-agniotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors for treating patients with diabetes who have a high risk for residual kidney problems.
