Have a look at the list of statistics that are accepted as character vectors. Note that 'median' is not one of the options.
Instead, you'll need to use a function handle to list 'median' as a stat.
stat1 = grpstats(ds, {'Sodyum', 'AST'} , {'mean', @median});
That fixes any syntax issues. If problesm persist, please describe the problem in detail and share the result of the following line (assuming ds is a table which appears to be the case).
head(ds) % if ds is a table
