    Hyponatraemia (low blood sodium) is a potentially life-threatening condition that may be more common in ME/CFS patients than in the general population, due to many of us apparently tending to lose a lot of sodium in urine. This is certainly true of myself, as I have mentioned in several threads, and I have been seriously ill with it twice. Doctors clearly had little idea of what tests to run, for example to ascertain my fluid levels, and instead resorted to disbelief and accusation when I tried to enlighten them. I did not receive the correct treatment, and ended up with additional problems by the time I was discharged, as I have also mentioned elsewhere. So this news is extremely welcome, and may save lives.

    My computer wont download it (I usually can download those files, must be a big one) but thanks for that anyway. I would of liked to have read it (hopefully I'll have another computer in within the next couple of months).
