AbstractA progressive decline in liver function lasting longer than six months, including the production of clotting factors and other proteins, the detoxification of hazardous metabolic waste products, and the excretion of bile, is known as chronic liver disease (CLD). The normal range of serum sodium is about 135-145 mEq/L. Its homeostasis is essential for cell function. Abnormal sodium levels can result from an imbalance in the body's overall water balance management. Patients having chronic liver disease often experience the complication of hyponatremia. Although hyponatremia is often described as having sodium level in those patients less than 135 mEq/L, in people with hepatic disease, the threshold is 130 mEq/L.
