Another test to differentiate dilutional from depletional hyponatremia assessment of the response to isotonic saline.
If we measure a serum sodium concentration below 130 mmol/L, the amount of total body water in the extra-cellular and intra-cellular compartments is in equilibrium; however, the concentration of sodium is below the normal reference range because total body water is in excess to total exchangeable sodium (dilutional hyponatremia) or excessive sodium losses (depletional hyponatremia) have occurred.
