In this case, we examined a patient with a history of T2DM who presented to the emergency department with four days of abdominal pain. During the patient’s hospital course, sodium levels fluctuated significantly while the care team struggled to stabilize levels with various medications, hydration protocols and lab monitoring. The patient had a prolonged length of stay as a result.
