136 mmol/L

John thanks a lot for your input. The normal sodium level is from 135 to 145. So your ones is within this normal range. It is on lower side but still will be considered normal as it can't affect you badly in anyway. Yes i do have a simple suggestion that can help you to raise it further. For that you just need to take over the counter available Gatorade solution. Drink it at least 3 glass daily. Alternatively you can just add table salt in a glass of water (add as per taste) and drink thrice daily. In few days, your level will rise but for sure you don't need to be stressed at the level of 136 because it is within normal range. I wish you all the best for a happy and healthy life.
