In this condition, the body retains water instead of excreting it normally in urine. This process upsets the body's balance of minerals called electrolytes, especially sodium.
Symptoms can vary depending on how rapidly the condition develops. In some cases, nausea and vomiting, headache, confusion, weakness, and fatigue may be experienced.
Treatments include fluid restriction and, possibly, medications to adjust electrolyte balance. Underlying conditions also need treatment.
