    • A: Loss of energy, drowsiness and fatigue, restlessness and irritability, muscle weakness, spasms or cramps. 
  • Q: What controls the sodium levels in the body?
    • A: Sodium levels in the body are partly controlled by a hormone called aldosterone, which is made by the adrenal glands.
  • Q: What happens if sodium is high in the body?
    • A: Hypernatremia typically causes thirst. The most serious symptoms of hypernatremia result from brain dysfunction. Severe hypernatremia can lead to confusion, muscle twitching, seizures, coma, and death.
  • Q: Can the body live without sodium?
    • A: The human body can’t live without some sodium. 
  • Q: What increases sodium levels in the blood?
    • A: Dehydration, which may be caused by not drinking enough, diarrhoea, or certain medicines called diuretics.
  • Q: Can drinking water lower sodium levels?
    • A: If you drink too much water, you can cause sodium levels in your body to be diluted to a dangerously low level.
  • Q: Can high sodium cause problems?
    • A: High sodium consumption can raise blood pressure, a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke.
  • Q: Why is potassium important for our body?
    • A: It is an essential electrolyte in the body, along with sodium or magnesium, responsible for assuring adequate functioning of our cells and tissues.
  • Q: What are the different sources of potassium?
    • A: Bananas, dairy products, potatoes, nuts, watermelon, avocado, cooked white meat and poultry. 
  • Q: What are the low-potassium food sources?

  • Q: What are the causes of hyperkalemia (high potassium)?
    • A: Heart attack or strokes, drug abuse, alcoholism, kidney disorders, excessive dehydration, and excessive use of potassium supplements without consulting a doctor. 
  • Q: What are the causes of hypokalemia (low potassium)?
    • A: Diarrhoea, vomiting, diabetes, renal disorders, folic acid deficiency, extreme sweating, overuse of drugs and alcohol.

  • Q: Why is bicarbonate important to the human body?
    • A: Bicarbonate is a base substance that the body needs to help keep a normal acid-base (pH) balance. 
  • Q: What causes too much bicarbonate in your blood?
    • A: It may be due to digestive issues that disrupt the blood’s acid-base balance, like repeated vomiting.
  • Q: What happens when bicarbonate is low?
    • A: Low bicarbonate levels in the blood are a sign of metabolic acidosis.
  • Q: Which organ is responsible for bicarbonate?
    • A: The pancreas also secretes large amounts of sodium bicarbonate, which protects the duodenum by neutralizing the acid that comes from the stomach. 
  • Q: What causes high urea levels?
    • A: The inability of the kidneys to remove the waste products efficiently causes high levels. 
  • Q: What are the symptoms of high urea levels?
    • A: Itchiness, loss of appetite, restless legs, frequent urination, discoloured or bloody urine, swelling hands and feet, joint and back pain. 
  • Q: What affects creatinine levels in the body?
    • A: Dehydration, exercise, physical changes in pregnancy, and kidney failure can all impact creatinine levels.
  • Q: What is the danger of creatinine?
    • A: High creatinine levels can indicate that your kidneys aren’t working well. 
  • Q: What should be avoided in high creatinine?
    • A: Eating less red meat and fewer fish products may reduce high creatinine levels. 
  • Q: Can stress increase creatinine levels?
    • A: High creatinine levels were found to be positively associated with high-stress levels and psychological distress.
