Gender Ethnicracial And Life Span Considerations

Hypernatremia is most likely to occur in infants, elderly people (especially those institutionalized), or debilitated patients. It is mostly linked to inadequate fluid intake. Infants and children in developing nations may be at increased risk for hypernatremia since infant feeding is complicated by poor maternal milk production due to poor nutrition and errors in mixing powdered formula. The total body sodium level does not vary significantly depending on the person's gender or age once childhood is over. No gender or racial/ethnic considerations exist with the condition.
