Drinking to Death

 

Written by Chris Frazier
U.S. Army Combat Readiness Center

U.S. Army Combat Readiness CenterFort Rucker, AL – The profession of arms is inherently dangerous. Every Soldier knows that when they take the oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, they could lose their life.

But not every loss occurs in a desert or mountain range halfway around the world. The risks back home are just as deadly.

Hyponatremia is a condition that occurs when the sodium level in the blood becomes too low. While there are several possible causes of hyponatremia, a contributing factor is drinking too much water, which is most often seen in those participating in high-intensity activities. Humans lose sodium through sweat, and drinking too much water during those activities can dilute the blood’s sodium content.
