    Summary at a Glance

    In a prospective observational study in non-dialysis chronic kidney disease patients, Green et al. have shown that hyponatraemia, but not hypernatraemia, is associated with all-cause but not cardiovascular mortality, independent of concomitant medications and co-mortalities.
