Background: Hypo- and hypernatremia are common in hospitalized patients. The differential diagnosis of dysnatremia is challenging.
Osmotically inadequate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) is the predominant mechanism in most dysnatremic disorders. ADH measurement is cumbersome. It is derived from a larger precursor peptide along with copeptin, which is a more stable peptide directly mirroring the production of ADH.
Objective: To evaluate the additional value of copeptin to improve a currently used algorithm in the differential diagnosis of (A) severe hypoosmolar hypo- and (B) severe hypernatremia.
Design: Prospective observational study.

hospitalized patients with hyponatremia
- diagnostic accuracy of copeptin within hospital stay [ Time Frame: participants will be followed for up to 1 year ]diagnostic accuracy will be determined by receiver operated curve (ROC) analysis. The study is powered to detect a difference of copeptin levels between patients with partial central diabetes insipidus (DI) and patients with primary polydipsia.
