    excuse me sir, i have a qestion regarding the development of hypernatremia due to DM. Generally, during DM a patient usually develops hyperglycemia which leads to excessive amounts of water moving out of the ICF compartment to ECF compartment ,leading to dilutional effect on serum sodium, causing hyponatremia.Hoping for fast reply from persons who can clarify.
