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"?
