    When a person has liver cirrhosis, the liver fails to metabolize aldosterone adequately, and the result is hyperaldosteronism with sodium and water retention

    In my book, there is this description, then a diagram of the human body with systemic clinical manifestations:
    Metabolic: potassium deficiency, hyponatremia, and hypoalbuminemia

    If there is sodium retention, then why is it "hyponatremia"?
