Epilim Hyponatraemia Causes and Reviews

Table salt is a combination of two minerals - sodium and chloride Your body needs some sodium to work properly. It helps with the function of nerves and muscles. It also helps to keep the right balance of fluids in your body. Your kidneys control how much sodium is in your body. If you have too much and your kidneys can't get rid it, sodium builds up in your blood. This can lead to high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to other health problems.

Most people in the U.S. get more sodium in their diets than they need. A key to healthy eating is choosing foods low in sodium. The Dietary Guidelines recommend that most adults eat less than 2.3 grams per day. That equals about 1 teaspoon of table salt a day. Some people are more sensitive to the effects of salt than others and should eat less. This includes people who have high blood pressure, diabetes, or kidney problems, or are African-American or over age 50. Reading food labels can help you see how much sodium is in prepared foods.

Got fatter because medicine makes me eat more, shaking, etc

Mon, 18 Jul 2011

In June 2005 I suffered a minor head injury, after a while I started having a mild muscle spasm in my left arm, after 2 years my GP advised 200mg of Eplim may help, eventually I agreed.

In Oct 2009 I move house/area the new GP eventually increased my pescription to 2500 mg, to date I have never had signs of or had an epliletic fit. I have MRI scan which show no abnomal problems.

My GP recently sent me to a specalist. I saw my specalist 8 weeks ago who has sinced carried out another MRI scan and EEG, he has told me they may be able to stop the muscle spasm with an operation.

Since that appointment I have stopped taking Eplim, the muscle spasm have stopped completely and I feel alive again.
