Abstract: The hormonal changes associated with ageing, the occurrence of other medical condition and the use of medications increases the likelihood of conditions such as hyper- and hypo-natremia. Awareness of the homeostatic changes with age and the relations with disease and drugs will lead better management of fluid disorders in the elderly patient and hopefully a reduction in morbidity and mortality.
