Tal fato ocorre porque a agua possui uma baixa quantidade de sodio, aumentando o volume plasmatico e diminuindo a natremia, ou seja, ocorre uma reducao da concentracao do sodio plasmatico com consequente diminuicao da sensacao de sede e aumento da producao de urina, que podera levar a desidratacao (Guyton, 2011; Noakes, 2006; Shirrefs, Armstrong e Cheuvront, 2004).

Laboratory tests at admission, before refeeding commenced, showed marked reductions in natremia (123 mEq/L; normal range 136-144 mEq/L) and chloremia (89 mEq/L; normal range 101-111 mEq/L) and very high values of serum creatine kinase (3,238 IU/L; normal values: 38-234 IU/L).
