Our expert says:
Sheila, everybody has sodium in the blood, so i think that they mean that his sodium levels are high. The most common causes in the elderly are inadequate water intake, kidney problems, drugs and fever. The treatment and prognosis depends on the cause and of course on the person’s general state of health. The best would be to ask the treating physician as he has all the relevant details. Good luck.
