Thanks for your query. Your sodium level is in the low normal range and chloride is well within normal range. You do not need any active intervention currently. For low sodium level, saline infusion is generally recommended. Wish you good health.

As I had mentioned already you would require no intervention for this minimal deficit. You can repeat the test after a few days when I expect the levels to have returned to normal. You currently exhibit no specific symptoms associated with low sodium level. Hence there is no reason to worry.
