Does Drinking Coconut Water Cause Diarrhea
Just started a new diet that has me drinking 148 oz of water a day. Can that cause my diarrhea? Or can it be the vitamins I started taking.

Generally no: The body has mechanisms to get rid of the excess water, but under certain conditions - if it is taken in very rapidly or in certain disease states, it can cause water intoxication - diluting the blood so that sodium levels can get very low - if low enough, it can cause seizures, coma and death.

Not usually: water is absorbed very well from the intestines, and rarely could that capacity be exceeded. When the gut is inflamed by a virus, it interferes with the ability of the gut to absorb solid nutrients, and they will cause diarrhea.
