Tests and diagnosis

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Your doctor will start by asking about your medical history and doing a physical examination.

However, because the signs and symptoms of hyponatremia occur in many conditions, it's impossible to diagnose the condition based on a physical exam alone. To confirm low blood sodium, your doctor will order blood tests and urine tests.
