Hi folks,

First post. Love to hike, especially to streams where I can find trout that are less experienced (i.e., they ignore my poor casting ability in favor of that juicy fly on the water!)

A couple of years ago I experienced hyponatremia (severe and sudden drop in sodium level, which can be extremely dangerous if not treated) while hiking at altitude in Utah. Got to spend a night and a day in the Casper, WY hospital and want to avoid dealing with that ever again.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to prep for a hike in order to avoid this nastiness?

Thank You for any ideas...
