A person who is on a longer hunger strike and is surviving only on water, will have

  • more sodium in his urine

  • less amino acids in his urine

  • more glucose in his blood¬†

  • less urea in his urine

Answer

A.

more sodium in his urine

The normal concentration of sodium in the blood plasma is 150 mEq/L. If this level drops below 120 mEq/L, the result may be lethargy, coma or death. Unlike deficiencies of other important fluid constituents, the most common cause of this drop in sodium concentration is not a nutritional deficit of sodium, but rather an excess of water.
