Management of Ascites Caused by Cirrhosis
This answer is incorrect. If one checked a 24-hour urine for creatinine clearance, it would likely be less than 50 ml/min. Cirrhotic patients typically have low muscle mass, which is typically reflected by low creatinine levels. As a rule of thumb, cirrhotics with serum creatinine levels above 1.0 have some level of renal insufficiency. Although the fluid restriction would improve the hyponatremia, it would worsen renal function.
