Hyponatremia of Multiple Myeloma | Pseudohyponatremia of Multiple Myeloma is True Hyponatremia

Hyponatremia of Multiple Myeloma research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

Hypothesis: the hyponatremia of multiple myeloma (m.m.)is true and not pseudohyponatremia by using the stewart approach to acid - base interpretation, would like to show that the positive charged m- proteins produced in m.m.result in true hyponatremia.

Who is eligible to participate?

Inclusion Criteria: - patients with multiple myeloma

Which medical condition, disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury is researched?

Hyponatremia of Multiple Myeloma

Study Interventions
