"Hyponatremia is a condition that results in an imbalance of the ratio of water to salt in body fluids...In my patients going through cancer treatment, hyponatremia is somewhat prevalent...several cancers can be associated with hyponatremia...among them are cancers of the head and neck, thyroid...side effects of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy may also cause hypoatremia...symtoms include minor headache, muscle cramps, fatigue, confusion, dizziness and seizures... and can normally be corrected with simple dietary measures such as limiting the intake of free water and replacing it with broth."
