My 74 year old Dad has lower Sodium and Chloride than normal in his bloodwork.
After taking 1/2 teaspoon of salt with his dinner, the Sodium and Chloride levels are still low, but blood pressure is high.
I don't have exact numbers right now, will post as soon as I receive.
I heard low Sodium levels can lead to seizure and stroke. Plus he's depressed at how his life turned out, so that's lot of stress.
The doctor he goes to is not even board certified and she didn't seem concerned by such levels.
Please tell what kind of Specialist can help my dad.
Thank you so much!
In May 2016 Dad went to Pulmonologist, blood pressure was 120/61, yet sodium and chloride were low Then Dad started taking 1/2 teaspoon of salt with dinner
10 days ago went to Internal Medical Doctor, blood pressure was 140/70 but Sodium level is 129
