Hyponatremia is a marker of abnormal water metabolism and frequently complicates the clinical course of patients with cirrhosis and chronic congestive heart failure (CHF) (1,2,3,4,5). Both of these hyponatremic disorders are associated with an increased total body sodium and a larger excess of total body water.
