UreaAide works by osmosis. It really is that simple. When you have excess water (SIADH/Hyponatremia) it is that excess water that is diluting your sodium and causing the number to be low. UreaAide works by increasing the osmolarity (concentration) in the urine which will ultimately draw water to flow in the urine out of the body. As this water leaves the body the dilution effect decreases and the sodium rises. It really is that easy.
I’ve often been asked in my years of practicing nephrology, why does it matter if my sodium is low? The short answer is even mild Hyponatremia is linked to several notable negative signs and symptoms. Hyponatremia is associated with an increased death rate, longer hospital stay, falls, Re-admissions to the hospital, osteoporosis (bone disease), and worsening mental state. More severe forms can lead to seizures, coma and even death. Good news is if caught early and treated properly Hyponatremia can be cured, and sodium levels can be maintained in a normal range. UreaAide is one of the safest most effective ways of helping you maintain normal sodium level. A typical dose of 1 scoop twice a day often does the trick, and it tastes good too!
