What can you do at home if sodium level is 120?
This will depend on the cause of such a low sodium level. Basically speaking, though, you can increase your sodium intake to raise your sodium level. However, if your sodium level is that low due to fluid overload, then taking care of the fluid overload problem would likely return your sodium levels to a more normal level.

A normal sodium level is 135-145. A low sodium level could indicate a variety of different conditions, as well as be a side effect of medications. You don't necessarily need to go to the hospital, but you should make an appointment with your doctor to discuss what could be causing the low sodium level.

Is low sodium good?
Definitely not. The condition of having low serum sodium level or low concentration of sodium level in the blood is called HYPONATREMIA. It is common electrolyte disorder among athletes and elderly. Severe hyponatremia may cause headache, confusion, lethargy, muscle weakness, spasms, cramps, seizures, loss of consciousness and coma. So, it is important to maintain your sodium level within the normal limits.

Is a sodium level of 120 low?
120 is a very low number for sodium, and may result in seizure activity. The normal range for sodium is 135 to 145 mEq/L (millequivelents per liter.) Just to add to this, my sodium is 122 and my doctor said that this is very near critical. If you have a blood sodium level at 120 your doctor should be taking steps to correct it and find the cause.
