A month ago I had blood work which all came back good but my Doc said my sodium was a little low at 133. He said he was not concerned but if I wanted I could re test in a month. During that time I started drinking v8 juice daily including the day of my re test which came out with sodium of 138. Now I am concerned because I think I may have messed up the test drinking v8 juice especially before the blood draw. I don't know what I was thinking.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Sodium is nothing to worry about if above 128 or even 120. So your levels are perfectly normal. Just rehydrate and keep an eye on your electrolytes. No worries.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
