I drink about 85-100 oz of water a day plus 32 oz of dr pepper. Will this cause electrolyte imbalance?

Dr. Pepper: As long as your also eating and not just living off dr. Pepper and water and as long as you have normal functioning kidneys like most do, you will not encounter electrolyte imbalance. You will however encounter other less easily treatable conditions with your continued daily 32 oz intake dr pepper, obesity being one of them. The water is okay and start cutting back on the dr. Pepper all together.

Is it safe to take ibuprofen and tamsulosin for frequent painful urination problem? Trying to avoid kidney stones so I drink approx 100 oz of water/day

Is it safe to take ibuprofen and tamsulosin for frequent painful urination problem? Trying to avoid kidney stones so I drink approx 100 oz of water/day

Not as good idea: I don't know who suggested you tamusilosin for frequent urination. You are drinking 100 0z of water. Do you have past history of stones. I suggest you consult your doctor and get yourself checked including urinalysis and culture. The commonest cause of painful frequent urination is infection.you may need antibiotics. If you have past h/o stones then cat scan may be indicated. See your doctor

Is it true we need. To drink 100 ounces of water a day especially if you want to grow?

No: An adult may have a 2.5 - 3 liter (100oz) fluid need per day depending on size and activity, but it doesn't have to be water. The fluid value of vegetables (60% water) and other foods will satisfy a portion of that need.

Is 4 16.9 oz bottles of water a day too much water? I drink this every day and sometimes more every single day.

Is 4 16.9 oz bottles of water a day too much water? I drink this every day and sometimes more every single day.

Why?: Why are you drinking water? There is no real benefit, unless you suffer from kidney stones. If you are physically active and live in a warm climate, you may need a lot of water to replace sweat losses. The best guide to water intake is your thirst. Listen to your body.

Should I be concerned if I drink 5 bottles of water each day. 16.9 fl oz (1.05pt) 500ml each bottle. Is it bad?

Should I be concerned if I drink 5 bottles of water each day. 16.9 fl oz (1.05pt) 500ml each bottle. Is it bad?

Probably not: However, are you drinking 5 bottles of water because you are thirsty or because someone thought it was a good idea? Unless you have a history of kidney stones, you should be fine to drink somewhat less than 2.5+ liters of fluids (5 bottles of water + other sources of water). For most patients, a total daily intake of 2L of fluids should be more than adequate.

How much coffee is too much? I probably drink about 36 oz a day. I also drink 4-5 liters of water a day. Doesn't bother me, but want to be healthy.

How much coffee is too much? I probably drink about 36 oz a day. I also drink 4-5 liters of water a day. Doesn't bother me, but want to be healthy.

Two to three: The best amount of caffeine to have is about 300 mg or less per day. This equates to about 2-3 cups, depending on how strong they are. Drinking more is not unsafe per se, but you won't get any additional alertness, and the diuretic effects will make you urinate frequently. Hope this helps!

Can you drink too much water in a day?

Yes: If you kept drinking water all day long your body will tell you when to stop. If you were to ignore the symptoms of fullness you will most likely start to have problems. 8 to 10 glasses of water is healthy and if you are working out side in the heat you may need more.
