Is drinking 128 oz of fluid daily safe? I try to mix in Gatorade or electrolyte tabs to prevent Na/K depletion, but concerned about dilution of other things in blood. Must do this to address orthostatic intolerance and not faint.
Better question: If that's what you need to prevent orthostasis then, nothing will happen to you but a more interesting question to ask is WHY does a 29 year old have orthostasis if they drink any less than 128 oz. of fluid daily? That is not a normal situation. Has that been investigated and discovered?

Once, after I ran I had faintness, difficulties in breathing, seeing (white image). Then the medic gave me glucose and calcium, what were they for?
Suspected low sugar.: in the short term, low blood sugar is more dangerous than high level and so rapidly giving sugar for suspected symptom is a safer bet. I doubt that u had low calcium--as u likely would have experienced muscle spasm etc...but giving u some MAY reduce the risk of cardiac rhythm trouble. I would recommend checking with doc to see why u had trouble breathing...?asthma? Good luck ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
