Just gotta play league of legends and that sodium will go right up
Just play Fortnite
@Vile Nation Gaming they bathe in sweat
there is a reason why it’s abbreviated as LOL
As a dietitian, this is so true! There can be multiple etiologies for low sodium. Most often it's too much salt or too much fluid intake, but sometimes it can also be due to your kidneys not retaining sodium so you lose it in your urine or with diarrhea from poor absorption. Always important for your healthcare team to investigate the root cause before prescribing treatment! :)
"So true" as in "normal doctors don't understand how simple it really is to eat more salt" or "I agree, it's difficult to tell that you need more salt when your salt is low"? If it's the 2nd one, quit your job immediately.
But it’s easier and more profitable to just start doing random things until you find something that works
First thing I thought of was hyponatremia. Why didn't they ask about food and water intake? Patient is still concious.
Mine is dilutional hyponatremia - kidneys. Manageable as long as I'm mindful about fluid intake (LESS) and salt intake (more, but mostly CONSISTENT)
Wow yeah I have malabsorption due to my gastric bypass will I have this issue too I already have iron issues
I appreciate the fact he points out that medical professional can at times be somewhat condescending. I use to have a friend who was a nurse. She treated everyone else who wasn't in the medical field like an idiot. Problem tho she legit was a moron and I still don't know who tied her shoes for her in the morning.
See I’m a physicist so everyone else is an idiot to me
@Bails888 not the Dunning Kruger effect
Not gonna blame her, I am a programmer and I treat everyone around me like chimps
I know a nurse like that. She really does drink tap water. SMH.
I have had sodium level issues almost 20 years. Quickest way to check is to lick some salt. When your levels are low the salt will actually taste sweeter than it should. Saltine crackers and Gatorade work in a pinch.
Yes I definitely agree here. I had this issue when I was pregnant with my twins I couldn’t keep my electrolytes up very well. Every time I needed more sodium I would start craving everything salty and it didn’t taste salty at all, but as soon as I was good it would be disgusting all of a sudden. Tasting so salty. It still works now and I’m seven months postpartum.
@Evan how can you spend days without eating or drinking because of stomach issues? That's definitely not normal. Also you taste soy sauce like it's sweet when it's the saltiest shit ever....You should go to the hospital to get checked on that...
Our football coach would give us Gatorade and a pickle before a game said it help keep our sodium up
I noticed this when I was ill. I had nothing substantial to eat or drink for a couple days because I couldn't stomach it. When i was finally able to tolerate soup broth (that i salted with soy sauce instead of regular salt because I wanted ✨flavor✨), it was almost sweet. It took a little more soy sauce that usual to produce the desired effect. Interestingly, i still can't stand Gatorade/Powerade because even when I'm I'll they're too salty and bitter.
@Angie Hernandez I have sodium level issues and low blood pressure for various reasons and I can confirm the Gatorade part, It's almost like magic. However, never in my life did salt seem sweet to me when I savored it. I don't think you should generalize in this way because not all people with low blood pressure issues experience what you are saying.
internal medicine summarized in 1minute
@J K might i ask why you need to still pay out of pocket if you have health insurance? What's the point of even having health insurance then?
@Bob Jamaica mine is about 18% you guys pay more?
@Chrono "...people inherently care more about themselves than the public as a whole..."Yeah...? They should. That's not a big, it's a feature and government does absolutely nothing to change that. At all.This is circular logic also. What exactly do you think a government is? It's just people.This is your logic;People are bad, therefore we need a government made up of people are bad, therefore we need a government made up of people are bad,...see?People who support a system that necessarily grows in wealth and power by robbing and attacking peaceful people...are bad.
@Chrono you didn't ask how developed my ideology is. I'm a voluntarist. Lemme find some copypasta...Voluntaryism is a very simple moral philosophy - it is the basic proposition that all human interaction should be voluntary and directly consensual. Voluntaryism rejects the initiation of force in all its various forms including physical violence, threats of violence, theft, kidnapping, slavery, rape, murder, etc. Unlike Pacifism however, Voluntaryism does not bar the victim of coercion from responding in a strictly self-defensive manner.If we're to apply this philosophy consistently then we'll have to hold the people who call themselves "the government" to the same standards as anyone else. That standard is simply that voluntary human relations are the opposite of power relations, and that communities are best organized by voluntary relations. That is, relations among equals, and not between rulers and subjects. Voluntaryists are typically not fans of government in principle, nor do they think that the institution of coercive government is necessary. We recognize that there are two ways that people can relate to one another: voluntarily or coersively. Voluntaryists embrace the former and reject the latter.Whether you're a voluntaryist, interested in learning about voluntaryism, and/or you value peace, freedom, and consent, we welcome you to these meetups and look forward to connecting with you on a variety of ideas!I've been inspired and influenced by a number of philosophers, economists, and professors including Spooner, Mises, Rothbard, Rose, Locke, Molyneux, Murphy, and many others.There is nothing that government pretends to provide(by first robbing people of course), that can not be provided by purely virtuous means(that means no theft). If there is, then it surely should not exist. Just like someone shouldn't own a Ferrari, if they have to steal money to acquire it.I bought my best friend a fat textbook by Walter Block for Christmas called "THE PRIVATIZATION OF ROADS AND HIGHWAYS" because I was tired and embarrassed of him asking dumb statist questions like "but without government, who will build the roads?" as if not knowing something, and asking a question somehow constitutes an argument. In reality, if you are genuinely interested in how things might operate in the absence of a state, you need only to literally Google that question and tons of stuff will come up. Mises.com covers virtually every "how would X be provided/function without a government?" scenario imaginable. Pick national defense, industry, roads, education, cops, etc. All have a quick rundown of how much the government absolutely sucks at providing that thing which you think only government can provide, and all have viable virtuous alternatives there waiting to be discovered by you.Do you really think the justice system works now? Do you really think the government stops the super rich from being unaccountable, or do you think government helps the super rich be unaccountable? How many corporations rob you on a regular basis? How many businesses force you to be their customers?But of course, government is the good guys and private businesses are the bad guys right?You think government keeps private businesses honest, or do you think other competing businesses do a better job at that? Now who are the competitors for the state ran programs?Maybe you haven't actually given this much thought.Sorry if I sound annoyed. I'm chill. Promise.
@Sean Ryno Jesus dude, chill we could do without the edgy writing. I was just wondering how developed your ideology is.Privatise everything the government does? Fuck, you want all of the shit the government does to be handled through private institutions which then the normal citizen can choose to support with his money, instead of being coherced to pay taxes?I don't know where to begin listing what's wrong with that idea. Take military funding, are they supposed to get their money through... fundraising? charity? Or what about public infrastructure! People inherently care more about themselves than the public as a whole, you'd be hardpressed to get any money for things that can't be charged for.The administrative power in this system would shift from an elected government to the richest few of the population! Billionaire's would be in charge, with nothing to stop them!What about the justice system too, how would laws work. If people don't want to pay for it, then it doesn't deserve to exist. The normal person would not even look in the direction of financing the justice system. If these institutions are privatised, ALL the power is in the shareholder's hands. You think the ultra rich are powerful now, wait until regulations and enforcement have to answer to shareholders!I understand the frustration with being taxed, or how sometimes we find flaws in stuff we can't find replacements for. I don't think you had given much thought to what was said. And please this is literally a IDclips comments section I'm aware but calling people stupid or being like "what do you propose to happen instead of rape" just makes people not want to engage with your ideas. I'm giving the benefit of the doubt since you were prolly annoyed at the time of writing, though
My dad was actually given salt pills when he was doing high school tennis. Keep in mind he was exercising in 100+ degree weather and his water intake was extremely limited
@marmalade&peaches lol most stupidest 😆
@Nathan Klein that's the most stupidest thing I've heard. Your body will try to keep hold of all the sodium it has and only release the old ones to replace with the new ones, which you're gonna need water for
Actually less water intake causes hypovolemic hypernatremia ie.water is lost more compared to water....so water intake first then think about salt pills
Yeah, we do that for football to, it's ti offset salt loss from sweating rather than anything to do with fluid intake
This happened to my husband last month. This is hilarious and is exactly what happened 🤣
When I was first diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrom, my neurologist put me on a medication to help me retain sodium. After she retired, my new neurologist took me off them and told me to just eat more ramen and junk (I was underweight at the time, too, and had an otherwise healthy diet, so there wasn't a worry about adding a little junk. I also have a severe sensitivity to wheat so the ramen I can eat is generally a lot healthier than regular).
@reese because being anal about only putting perfect food in your body is unhealthy, and my diet was otherwise healthy. There was also quite a bit of nutrition in those processed foods that I was having trouble getting in my blandish diet. Especially considering I struggle with anorexia, her telling me that was very helpful in getting me to eat something at all.She also was not advocating non food items, like McDonald's or corn syrup, just items higher in sodium- like Ramen, Spam, pickled things, packaged broths, things you shouldn't feed someone with severely high blood pressure.
@J Wright yes. It has helped me significantly. In the summer or when I exert myself, I often have to turn to actual sodium pills, because I can't get enough salt from my food.
your doctor instructed you to eat processed and less nutritious foods?! why when that can lead to more health issues and the salt pills seemed to be helping
Did it actually help?
Please do one where you’re patient is a medical student and want to know every single detail of the sciences and terminology for every single test and diagnostic assessment the person should have. Cause that’s totally me.
Im a pharmacy technician at my inpatient hospital and anytime I watch the pharmacists talk at my job im like ✍😃
@Daniel M OH. bro my eyes must have stopped working. i read another entire thing.
@chemically calm no,your. you’re is you and are put together which doesn’t make sense in that context.
@NOT_A_ROBOT no? it's you're.
"Are they salt pills?""Na"
This is as funny as the actual video XD
Ama-zinc comments here have a humble like
this...this is jenius
Sir your sodium is pretty low""Maruchan can help with that"
This exact scenario happened to my mom. They insisted she needed to limit her salt intake, only for her sodium to drop and they wanted to be out her on salt pills.
As someone who has lower sodium due to, medications, can confirm, eating saltier items helps ( I, and many others like me tend to crave saltier items too, due to the lower sodium)
I literally had this happen to me about a month or two ago. The doctor didn't know that Lithium was a salt, people with low thyroid hormone levels usually should not take lithium because it causes their body to not be able to function properly. I suggested that I be taken off Lithium, put on a more modern and stable/safe antidepressant, and suggested that he does prescribe the sodium chloride (salt) so that it's documented in my charts as to why my blood pressure is low. It's disappointing when your insurance gives you doctors who aren't well educated because you get free health insurance. I often feel I have to go in prepared to educate my doctor and nurses as well as their staff members about medical problems they should already be on top of.
@Agsto Prds Lithium itself is a compound of salt. Therefore lithium carbonate contains salt much like potassium carbonate with their similarities and differences. No it does not cause Hypothyroidism and that is not what I said. I said I went in with hypothyroidism and the Lithium Carbonate worsened my condition. Hypothyroidism is an autoimmune response caused by a variety of factors either genetic or otherwise. As for putting any medications in a patients charts that's simple regulation in healthcare services for documentation. Such as documenting if a patient takes vitamin B12 or is diabetic. As for my medical education I am medically educated though I don't have a PhD I am a dental assistant. Both are in the medical field and are required to take into care the best interest of the patients needs and document their charts.
So Lithium is not a salt . Sodium chloride is salt. Yes, lithium can cause thyroid issues, but not exclusively hypothyroidism. Also, I am confused by the whole "I asked my doc to give me salt so that it's documented in my chart as to why my bp is low" thing - this just makes zero sense. Maybe try being more humble and less judgmental....? If you feel like you have to "educate" your doctors and nurses then why don't you just treat yourself? Oh right because you don't have the high-level education that they DO have.
Did your doctor refer to you as 'that smartass'... 😀
@J Fregia it's sometimes a hit or miss with medications like that 😭 Sorry you had to go through with it. That's why I discuss pros and cons of medications before I prescribe it to a patient
“And here’s the $7,000 bill for your salt pills”
They did this to me, my salt pills were three for $75 I believe. That was a daily billing. I refused the morning one. So I don’t know whatever even happened to it.
@Woodshadow my girlfriend is still fighting over 10 dollars over treatment she didn't get 🤦
Im sorry, here we have public health the trauma really works, my father lose his finger in a rotative machine, and he get surgery for "free"(taxes are huge here haha) the same day, we have popular prices for medications too. But if you need a consultation, or a elective surgery like me, i need to repair my divided uterus, i waiting for the call to know the date of my medical consultation like 2 months now, and the surgery, you may wait like a whole year if you are lucky. But the emergency is really necessary. Its like really good dont need to think that you need to pay this amount of money in a urgent situation..
A bag of Chips and a Gatorade would have been 10 $ ( including tax and the raised prices atm)...
Not in Canada
Finally a video that shows doctors should be a little more humble when listening to the patient and their logic.
I had hyponatremia a couple months ago after shingles and being put on carbamazepine. I was put in the hospital but because they did not have room in the ICU they put me in the PCU. They had to draw blood every 2 hours for metabolic panels. Initially they had me on NS but moved me to D5 when my sodium raised too quickly. The nephrologist told me when I complained about the frequent blood draws that normally he would have had me on a cath to monitor fluid but because of the ICU being full and short staff, I had to have the blood draws every 2 hours. I have EDS and every other blood draw ended up with me needing to be stabbed again because my veins collapse or stretch away. I am a pharmacist and understood the reason for why they had to do this but by the last day the phlebotomist could not get blood out of me and I started to have panic attacks. My arms where black and blue and stung. It was torture. I started to think if there is a hell, that was where I was.
"It's more complicated than that"Well...I really can only eat more or less sodium. "We're going to need you to eat both more and less sodium"So...don't change anything?
I went through this exact same scenario. They expected me to eat salt pills with my breakfast. Or dissolve them in water and drink the water. And they tried giving me IV fluids which made all my other levels drop although the sodium did go up. Then they were worried I was peeing every hour but they had pumps like five bags into me when they said they only did two. Craziness! Don’t get me started about low magnesium! That stuff burns!!
Ah yes. Multiple tests and treatments before just giving him some salt. That's the hospital way 😁.
Gotta pay the bills somehow
@Hikary Chan low kidney absorption, too high water intake washing it out, too high sodium intake making your body reject it
Heh and they say there’s no culture here in America
I'll assume it's to make sure that it's safe?
It's funny caise in my country people complain the doctors try treating the symptoms instead of searching for the cause
I was told by a Dr to increase my salt intake (as a teenager), and it actually seemed to help with my blackouts
I love when I see the no added salt diet whilst taking sodium chloride pills 🤣
This is so accurate that it hurts. I thought my doctor was joking when she told to take sodium chloride tablets because I refused to believe it existed and now I have to swallow pills the size of my fingernail made solely of salt three times a day
Reminds me of when my childhood doc told me to just eat more salt for my low blood pressure. Medically prescription for potato chips 😎 though it was neglectful she didn't look for a cause, cause I had POTS the whole time. Stopped almost fainting from it when I started testosterone (I'm trans) and my baseline bp went up to a more healthy level than 95/60
A professor of mine once told me "not everything is a pathology." Sometimes the answer is dead simple, and you're just making things way more complicated than they need to be by overthinking things.
The problem is that doctors get crap for going with the simplest solution too. I’m not saying that there’s not an issue with doctors in the medical field, but it feels like everytime the doctor goes with the easy solution they’re “cutting corners” or “just trying to get out of the room faster” and “don’t really care about the patient”. But when they’re thorough, they’re “wasting the patients money” and “overthinking everything”. There has to be some middle ground- wait, sorry, I’m on the internet. There is no middle ground.
@Cindy That's not how it works. Physicians focus on effectiveness. They aren't the problem.
That's not how things work in medicine. Hyponatremia for example is treated differently based on the volume status of the patient. Euvolemic and hypovolemic hyponatremia have entirely different approaches. Not everything can be reduced to a simple binary problem. Sometimes medicine isn't straightforward. I know every pre med who has watched an episode of a medical show like to talk about zebras and Occam's razor, modern medicine is pretty algorithmic. Go through the protocols and guidelines for each presentation and eventually you'll arrive at a solution. This can be annoying for something as notoriously troublesome as hyponatremia in an internal medicine ward, but it's what needs to be done. Sometimes you gotta go through 5 first line treatments and travel down the flowchart before arriving at seemingly the simple solution. For example, if you correct sodium at a rate faster than 10 mEq/L per day you can potentially give patients permanent brain damage.
Tell that to UK doctors😂😂 they will literally give you paracetamol for EVERYTHING and send you on your way home
@Cindy ahh but it's more likely that patient treatment models thag doctors follow, were made to treat the most of general population safely and effectively, cuz noone had the time, effort or money to create individual treatment models for 7.8 billion people. The doctor was prob just following the treatment model assigned for ur symptoms and was doin their thing. Human error or overcomlication was prob the most likely issue
This feels like my experience with doctors. God forbid I was able to correctly diagnose myself with hypothyroidism by researching my symptoms-only to get testing that FINALLY tells my doctor I was RIGHT A LONG TIME AGO
@V J Yeah, working at a hospital I can tell you from experience that this is unfortunately quite common. Even among those doctors who do care about their patients, some can forget that their job isn't just medicine, it's also about people.A good physician does not only treat their patients well, they also listen and make them feel understood.Btw just so you know: A lot of people (including some doctors) think "stress" means that it's all in your head and you could just stop the symptoms if you wanted. That couldn't be further from the truth, stress is an unconcious and physical reaction. It can cause legit issues that require medical treatment.
@I Z Idk it often feels like I just don’t get taken seriously, and my symptoms are just written off as stress and I should see a therapist. It’s insulting and makes me feel gaslit.
A doctor should never listen to self diagnosis though. You have to do the testing because there could be a million issues causing those exact symptoms. They can't start any treatment until they know for sure or at least have something tangible to go off of.They have to be able to justify their decisions to their superiors, the courts and other doctors too.
As someone with end stage liver failure this made me laugh so hard
Jimmy: "You're sodium chloride levels are low Skeet!" Skeet: "uh bro that's salt"
@Josh H. lol, why do you appear to be so offended
🤣I love this video. I respect the amount knowledge doctors have, they aren't really taught nutrition at the molecular level. There is a difference between wisdom and knowledge. Most medical doctors rather prescribe pills like Losartan and metoprolol, when actually increasing your potassium to sodium ratio to roughly a 4 to 1 ratio will have positive life changing effects. Lowering sodium isn't always the answer unless a person has poor eating habits, which most do. Basic general rule of thumbKeep electrolytes at good levels, especially potassiumat least 4000-5000 mg and a 4 to 1 ratio to sodium intake, the more you drink or active you are, the quicker they deplete. And just to be clear, prescriptions do have a place, they are too often the first option when it's not needed.
48 hrs just to tell him he needs more salt, seems about right
The entire convo was about making sure if there was or wasn't an underlying cause FIRST
@Brian Grant except it doesn't help when the low sodium is a symptom not a cause
@Patrick Rowland nah, unless there is an underlying problem, salt or msg will always help low sodiumand of course it'll come back. if i drink a bunch of water, then none for 3 days, of course I'll have low water levels.artificially (actually naturally) increasing your salt intake with low sodium is the equivalent of drinking water when you're dehydrated.Salt and MSG is pretty much the only way we get sodium, just as Citrus is the only way we get vitamin C.I mean, why do you sometimes see animals licking rocks or drinking sea water; salt.
@1219monique lol yep no chance there's any other reason hey. Just like mucking around with people's health for funsies 🙃
Asi con toy y sus malas no se la loveme.Uno/PROZEN 💕Megan: "Hotter"Hopi: "Sweeter"Joonie: "Cooler"Yoongi: "Butter"Son unos de los mejores conciertos , no puede ir pero de tan solo verlos desde pantalla, se que estuvo sorprendente .
He thought he needed more salt, and it turned out he needed more salt. Modern medicine is absolutely wonderful, but the number one thing to being healthy is listening to your body.
Yep! So true! 👍Also, make sure you have enough of the other types of minerals like copper, magnesium, manganese, etc. I noticed that when I had too much salt on popcorn, it was probably my body's way of trying to let me know that I need more nutrients from various minerals.
And I can tell you (working in pharmacy), it is literally salt formed into a tablet. No binders or anything - just a gram of salt.
@Kelsey Bergen It was the most bitter thing I'd ever tasted at the time! The only reason I didn't spit it out is the pain was so bad I was willing to take anything to try and make it better. Couldn't help heaving though. I was very glad to take the pill instead.
@Panagiotis Tsampanis I read that as lactulose and thought “wtf that is messed up!!” Hahaha.
@VioletSkies that would be disgusting!! So bitter I bet
@Kelsey Bergen whats worse is often electrolyte balance is off due to overingesting sugar, potassium and sodium enter the cell and aldosterone retains water and salt. Would be great to just eat less sugar and quit the merri go round when we force feed people between meals.
Funny story: my mom has high blood pressure so she encouraged me to go on a low salt diet. I became instantly miserable and the doc said my sodium was super low. He said “you’re in an enviable position for someone your age” because I have to eat as much salt as possible. Can confirm salt works 😂
You see, what’s interesting about sodium is that it creates an osmotic gradient with water. Wherever salt is, water will follow. In this small science experiment-
lol you went there…then you became the powerhouse
Had hypo-natremia when I was 24...was drinking insane amounts of water and training at the gym several hours a day. I had also followed some bad advice and had cut salt way down in my diet.When the Dr. Figured out why I felt so crappy and weak all the time he told me to leave his office, go to the Burger King down the street and get a burger and fries and eat them along with a large soda.I felt 100% better within about 3 or 4 hours. Cut my water consumption in half and never had another issue.
This fascinates me, bc I have a genetic condition where my body eliminates salt quickly. It is most common in people of North Germanic/ Scandinavian ancestry, bc apparently we evolved eating lots of salted fish or meat. I've had seizures before from just drinking water & not replenishing electrolytes. The "cure" is truly just consuming enough salt 😆
Accurate! My final prescription was "drink Powerade daily". I no longer have seizures from low sodium.
@Celeste Pagano you're so lucky that you have a good doctor! I've been struggling to get doctors to acknowledge my conditions 😂 but hey that's Northern Irish healthcare for ya 🙄😂 hope you're doing well! 🥰🥰🥰
Seizure, no joke. 😞 Sorry you went thru that before finding an answer that works. Mine has never hit that point but my doc warns me.I have a good doc.
@Samual Jager yup! Happened when I was diagnosed with diabetes insipidus (vasopressin insufficiency) after brain surgery! not fun lol
@Dwight pedialyte is healthier
@chaosawaits There have been sugar free Powerade/Gatorade/Energy drinks for 10+ years
Good one, I wish it was an easy fix. As a nurse, I feel bad when patients have to go on a strict intake. However, finding out about their diet, health history, or personal problems- you can find out some much and learn a lot why that Na+ is low.
When it says you have low sodium, the test itself can mean a lot of things because sometimes there's just too much water retention which makes it seem like it's low sodium or occasionally it may be normal amount of water with only low sodium.
This is eerily similar to when I had to be induced and the hospital staff spent four days refusing to use the medication that ended up working.
The fun one is when they aren't read up enough on side-effects from certain meds like sertraline, etc., that are known to lower sodium levels in otherwise normal patients.
The US health system in a nutshell.Doctor: "You need to eat more salt."Patient: "OK, thanks, let me get on that."Doctor: "That'll be a thousand dollars..."
@• RED87 • Right! I'm more shocked about the other prices. I guess I've been privileged on that aspect of life. My insurance is from my job. Me and my father have the same job so I've never seen such high prices before. 🙃
@Julia I 100%
@Unhinged Gamin 10 DOLLARS?! HOLY CRAP
@Ad3l um no
My dad was actually given salt pills when he was doing high school tennis. Keep in mind he was exercising in 100+ degree weather and his water intake was extremely limite
when i started a medication that lowered my sodium levels i legit just treated it by eating some salted crisp a few times a week
I remember that one time I had horrible acid reflux for the entire day and my parents gave me all these medications and drinkables, and all I needed was spoonful of sugar.
I had this diagnosis! Having a daily good intake of "salt" does help.
That doctor just wanted to keep the chips for himself!
@I stole your toe. c h e e s e
@MEGAMATTHEW75 I'm not from usa, so just to see if I got it right, the doc did that for money?
@skyline it does not sound so sarcastic
That doctor just didn't want to make him fatter 🤣
These are all my conversations with doctors 😂 Im “that” patient
I was super low in potassium when I was pregnant and I didn’t realize how serious it was. They kept me for 7 hours and gave me an IV and I just wanted to leave. I was like can’t I just go home and eat some bananas? 😂
"the great thing about sodium is that where it is, water will flow towards it. In this small science experiment..."
Sometimes, I feel like doctors treat what they “think” you have until a medicine actually works. They always treat the symptoms, not the cause.
Lmao that happened to me honestly. I just ate s ton of salt over the weekend & it went higher lol
The accuracy though!😂👌
As someone who has been in ER for low sodium several times.... Yes. It literally is as simple as just eating salt and restricting fluid intake. Even though they kept saying to come back in or take salt pills. I told my doc the same thing, cant I just technically eat more salt? And he said yeah...but its more for the convenience. A salt pill doesnt taste like salt and you swallow it fast. But ive literally just treated low sodium at home by eating a handful of salt and not drinking anything for ~2 hours
This reminds me of my old doctor when she realized that my iron levels was lower than normal. If you love iron transfusions, you can have my anemia
Hard pass. So far knock on wood. I've been lucky that cooking in my cast iron skillet has been enough because iron pills and I do not get along.
“bring on the potato chips doc!” just feels so wholesome LMAO
IKR 😭😭 I STAN WHOLESOME INTERACTIONS EVEN IF THEY ARE STAGED 🤬
Yea cuz he isnt salty
Your 500th like
This was exactly me! But they told me to keep eating salt! 😂 😂 😂
I imagine the kidney doctors saying “Have you tried giving him salt”
I’m complaining to my doctor about the amount of salt he has me eating. He says, “you should feel privileged, you are my only patient I don’t have restricting salt, have fun” 😂😂😂
The Dr. Is right. The body is pretty self-regulating when it comes to things like this. They'd want to understand WHY he's not regulating sodium correctly, because even if they're able to correct the concentration in the short term, whatever is broken is going to get him right back to where he started.
“Your potassium is really low.”~chokes on the potassium tablets~“Ok… we’ll just give you bananas with every meal.”“I can do two bananas a day.”“That’s three.”“I eat like a bird! Are you saying I can only eat bananas?”“Yes.”That week sucked. The supplement pills are too big, and so I actually choke on them
Ok, for y’all that are saying this is an example of doctors just trying to run up the bill, that is absolutely NOT the case. Treating hyponatremia (low sodium) is very nuanced and not at all straight forward. There are multiple reasons for hyponatremia and the treatment for the different etiologies can be completely opposite. As a provider, I find this hilarious as it mirrors my own experience treating hyponatremia.
"A bit complicated" is an understatement lmao
I don’t know how prevalent of a thought it is for doctors to give lack of explanations, or don’t want to “bore” the patient with info (maybe because doctors are very busy or don’t think a patient can understand the explanation),But the doctors who made the effort for me to understand the “why” of decisions and to help me understand what is happening in a way that made me feel respected have by far been the most efficacious (I’m my experience) and impactful. Feeling like I was “on the team” was so important to me, and I think it’s part of good bedside manner
@Grace Gaskell I’m not sure why they behave the way they do. God fucking forbid you correct someone on a piece of information these days. I try to have as much patience as I can with them, but there are times I reach my limit. It’s like they’re threatened that someone may actually know more on a particular fucking subject they themselves have no goddamn knowledge in. I had a few friends that were pre-med when I attended University. I was always interested in medical knowledge myself, so I’d read a fair bit on different sub-classes, but I couldn’t hold a candle to any of my friends that were actually in the program. However, like you stated before, we all had a sincere love for science and always loved it when another would ask us about something in particular that pertained to our field of study. We would finally get to “geek out” on shit that we didn’t get to in our everyday life. Now some people just look at it like we’re know-it-alls or snobby. As far as Geological topics are concerned, I’ve had my fair share of run ins with climate change deniers. Trying to explain biogeochemical cycles to someone that doesn’t have a sincere interest in science in the first place, has never fucking worked. However, perhaps it’s my colorful language they don’t enjoy. I never enjoyed dealing with the public-especially in the Bible Belt of the U.S.. They see some video of someone that’s fucking famous and what they have to say on the subject and immediately believe they have more credibility than 99% of the goddamn population.
@Christopher D thank you, I appreciate that! I just wish ppl would stop thinking I was saying 'experience BEING the doctor'! I'm not, that's WHY I bothered to specify that I'm not a doctor yet, but that doesn't mean I don't have a good amount of knowledge on relevant topics. Honestly, do these ppl not realise you need a baseline of knowledge in order to even get into med school? And apparently its being a know-it-all to tell someone something you know either through studying for the qualifications to get to where I want to be, (which I have) or just as a pass time for my own enjoyment.Also, it's not just biology and chemistry I'm interested in - I'd love to hear about rock formations or climate change sometime if you'd like. Seriously, I enjoy being info-dumped to 🙂
@Grace Gaskell I am terribly sorry for some of the responses you received for even trying to shed some light onto a subject. I know that doesn’t mean much, but as I scientist myself, I understand what you were saying and what you were going for. Sometimes I wish someone would ask me questions about the science behind certain rock formations or climate change, but I also realize that I probably couldn’t relate the information in the best of terms. I just don’t have that particular skill set to relate information effectively to the general public….which is why I don’t fucking do it, as you could probably tell if you read my previous response.Anywho, I sincerely appreciate your thoughts and hope you achieve your goal of being accepted and, hopefully, graduating from med school. It’s a goddamn shame the outlook some have on STEM programs and current students in those programs.
My doctor straight got flustered when he couldn't explain my x-ray results to me in layman's terms when I asked... Just repeated the exact phrase on the diagnostics paper over and over. 🤔
12 hours of waiting to talk to other doctors is the most accurate part
I have POTS...this is how my visit w my heart doctor was lmao "you have low blood pressure and low sodium, drink lots of Gatorade and eat more salt" is literally what he told me lmao im down
I love it when I go to the doctor and tell them my symptoms and they can possibly be caused by only for them to tell me I'm always wrong and make me jump through a ton of pointless hoops to give me the diagnosis that I initially told them I most likely have
When my phosphorus would get high i remember having to chug water to try and help it 💀
As a nurse, I've honestly wondered the same thing as the patient.
That's why I trust doctors as far as I can throw them, and I'm pretty strong.
My dad had this issue and it was so frustrating for me I was his care giver.He wanted salt on everything but salt was restricted and so was his coffee which he loved yet he was on water pills I never understood all the reasoning
😆 This happened to my dad a couple of weeks ago too.
My grandmother had an interesting week of this last year. Literally what happened in this video. Gotta love it. And she's doing well, so all the goofiness worked out. Thanks, doc.
Was it free?
@Bllondiiie sorry for your loss, my condolences. Losing my grandmother was difficult. She was in such bad shape in the end that keeping her alive was causing so much suffering. Her heart was failing and was causing her lungs to fill with fluid. She was also on dialysis as she had her kidneys removed from cancer. Now I know she is at peace and is no longer suffering. It has been almost 4 years and I still miss her. Sometimes I dream about her and it makes me feel like she's still with me in a way.She was so good to me, actually felt more like a second mother than a grandmother. She retired from a company that she had been working at for her entire adult life to help my mother care for me. She started me a retirement account when I was a baby. Honestly, I felt like she loved me before I was even born. She was very maternal and loved children. I have been so lucky to have been born to her daughter. I loved and appreciated her since I can remember but now looking back I wish I would have done more, spent more time with her, did more things for her... because when you lose someone special like that, you are left with a deep void in your heart. I will never find anyone else in this world again that loved me as much as she did, and that makes me realize what a loss I have experienced. But I am so truly grateful that I got to have her in my life to shape me into the person I am today. Enjoy your loved ones. Spend as much time with them as you can! Take lots of pictures, trade books, go painting, or even just watch Wheel of Fortune together at home on the couch. Lol! Elderly people just want to spend time with their family. I feel like the older generations appreciate personal time more than anything else. They just want your presence and sometimes a little conversation.So... As far as the sodium chloride pills... would he have not had any improvement if he tried to increase his salt intake through his diet? I mean, he could have just started cooking with soy sauce. 🤣That conversation felt so cringy. 😂
@Bllondie I'll take that seriously, thank you. I hope you have peace about your loss🙂
Spend as much time as you can with her, lost mine Thursday. She had low sodium and other problems, she ended up having a seizure a year ago from low sodium and started having slight dementia, I’m not trying to scare you just don’t want anything to go untreated / un watched.
Should've gave him some damn chips 😂😂😂
Googling your symptoms is now just as effective as going to see most doctors
You forgot the part where he's charged 80 thousand dollars for the whole experience
Hahaha omg I remember the first time I walked in on one of my patients with ESRD, CHF, and hyponatremia pouring salt on a dill pickle and I was like WAIT! NONONONO uhmmm…NEPHROLOGY! HALP ME SPLAIN!
...At that point just give it to em and let nature take it's course. Like, nothing can be done here, the patient's IQ is as low as their chance of survival lmao
Anyone else was expecting the patient to reveal something that totally ruins all efforts of the doctor to raise the sodium levels back up?
So, apparently a bot copied your comment (only 100 or so likes) but it was like the fourth one I saw and I was going to like it until I realized it was a bot. So I had to scroll furiously through these comments to find the original so I could like the proper one. Work done. 😊
No it’s more complicated. The I’ve made my sodium drop even more. It’s something called SIADH. Usually due to another underlying problem or could be medication.
That's normally how these skits go. It was refreshing to see something different.
If you're here watching This and feeling inspired then keep going grinding away! keep up the good work and Never Give Up!!
one time I went to the emergency with my potassium low, I'm glad the doc didn't gave me potassium chloride pills.
as soon as he said sodium chloride my brain just went “TABLE SALT” because i was very interested in that one fact a couple years ago
A very wise word of advice for medical... “Common problems have common solutions” - A slightly altered version of what someone smart said.
As a hospital nurse, hyponatremia has always confused me. Some improve with extra salt, others with IV saline, and others with fluid restrictions.. why they respond differently? I wish I knew. I dread trying to explain this phenomenon to patients and their families.
I think watching a couple Chubbyemu videos would make it make sense. Half the videos are something like "A boy drank laxatives and glued his anus shut, this is what happened to his kidneys" or something along those lines.
Great answer, spot on! It’s not easy and sometimes you have to try a couple of things before giving sodium chloride
Just lookup the studies..
@Heather G Ballew wow, 3,000 words and none of them even slightly coherent. Have you tried philosophy?
This is literally my life, except it’s the opposite lol.
Meanwhile, my brother in law was just told by his doctor to put salt on everything he eats. Why? Because he has low sodium. Pretty sure they ran a bunch of expensive tests, called in specialists (more expensive doctors), and causation is still in question, but that was what he prescribed along with future follow up exams. I'm on pins and needles just waiting to see how this turns out... Will he endlessly have to salt everything? Or will he have to give it up? Is there middle ground to be found?
Doctor: "looks like your sodium is low"...Said no doctor ever
This is pretty much exactly how it goes. I'll go in the hospital dehydrated and needing fluids so they'll give me IV fluids. And then before even 2 boluses of fluids is gone I go into heart failure so they put me on lasix to remove all the fluid that's built up around my heart and then I go into kidney failure and I end up in the ICU because somehow I've ended up septic all in under 48 hours. No it doesn't happen every time but it's happened enough that I can pretty much predict when it's going to. Thank God I have unbelievably incredible insurance.
Doctor: "Sir your salt is low."Me, licking my lamp: "Fine then, I'll do it myself."
Watch out for the aluminum, cadmium, mercury and lead that can be found in pink salt.
@Amanda Croft okay thats a good one keeping that for later
@Amanda Croft check my later reply acknowledging my misreading of the comment in question.
@DynamicWorlds it's a joke, not a dick.. don't take it so hard ;)
@ghost there are two kinds of people in the world: those that can infer from incomplete data
The salt lick in the cow pasture makes sense more and more now... Coming to a lunch room near you... 😂🤦♀️
Yep. And they will charge you a lot of $$ for 2 salt pills… 😂
I had a sodium drop and my dr actually told my to eat straight salt. I almost died because I had to eat that much salt according to my dr.
He's busted the whole medical industry 😂😂
😂 I was in this exact situation multiple times during a nephrology rotation… it’s amazing how some people’s sodium labs will continue trending the “wrong way” despite a half dozen treatments that would’ve been “foolproof” correction in almost anyone else 🤯
I always find with hyponatraemia that it takes me 48 hours to work out the cause, by which time it resolves on its own.

People like you are the reason I almost lost my father a few months ago. How many days and how many thousands of dollars just to figure out something basic.
This happened to me while pregnant on antenatal. After the fluids didn't help they had dietary go to the store and buy me potato chips. The cafeteria wouldn't send them up 🤣
Just wait till you get the bill for all those tests when you could have just eaten potato chips 🤣
