I just got my serum chemistry for 32days on the Sof/Led.
LFTs are rosy, but there is a pronounced sodium deficiency, that wasn't there before.
In November 2015 Sodium was 137mmol/L, Chloride 100 and Urea 2.4.
So it looks like Hyponatraemia. I have been drinking quite a bit but not more that 2 or 3 litres per day, and I am so dehydrated I need it. Hot and sweaty weather here, and meds are very diuretic. No other medication to explain the change.
Wondering what to do...I have a very nice salty Japanese tea I have just started drinking, but who knows whats in that (its all in Japanese). My body seems to want it though.
Feeling a bit bleh...itchy rash, constipation, exhausted. Thankful I can take time off to crash out.
Anyone else have this effect?

Hi FF,

Not medical advice so make of it what you will. You are short of both Sodium and Chloride probably because your fluid throughput has changed due to the meds but your salts intake hasn't. A bit of extra Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt sprinkled on your food or in your cooking during treatment will likely do the trick. ;)

LFTs look great though! :+1:
G3a since '78 - Dx '12 - F4 (2xHCC)
24wk Tx - PEG/Riba/Dac 2013 relapsed
24wk Tx - Sof/Dac/Riba 2015/16 relapsed
16wk Tx - 12/01/17 ->

And I couldn't wait to get on the road again
On the road again, on the road again!

Your Sodium is not worryingly low. Your urea is low (which is harmless) but indicates you have been drinking a lot. Dehydrated, high urea. Lots of fluid, low urea.

Gaj's suggestion about having a bit of salt will work, or drink a bit less.
YMMV

Thanks :)
Feeling good this morning...can't wait to see the viral load result!
Will start making natural electrolyte drink with Himalayan salt and cut down on the fluids a bit.
As a side note I used the trick of putting my address on the blood form and got them delivered to my door.

Use sports drinks. They have sodium and potassium.

Yuck. I don't do those chemical concoctions.
The Himalayan salt in water did the job, and the only downside was I got a bit addicted to it.
Had to force myself to stop in the end.
