Hyperhydration risks: A major concern of too much water intake is hyponatremia (sodium level in blood is too low). Also of concern is hypokalemia (potassium level in blood is too low). Can also cause brain or other cell swelling, or seizures. If any symptoms or any concerns, report for medical evaluation in location that can provide evaluation and draw labs.
