how long can a person survive without food ? just drinking water

Depends on

Water
your initial body weight and fat reserves so it varies person to person. Not a nice way to die as the body will digest itself for needed nutrients once the fat reserves are gone. If i was to guess and average I would say 60-90 days.

If your drinking alcohol at home is it safe to put water in it and does it help or make it worse for the person drinking ?

Alcoholic

Alcoholics_anonymous
There is no health benefit to diluting the alcohol. An alcoholic drinks because they are Alcoholic. There is a great section in the book "Alcoholics Anonymous" that defines all of the ways alcoholics try to drink like a normal person. It may be beneficial to read that chapter in this important book.

Dr. Jeremy Gitomer answered:

Is it possible that a person, who did not eat anything for 3 days and only drinking distilled water, have perfectly balanced Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium in her lab?

Yes

Kato
The kidney is very smart and will conserve electrolytes in the setting of a lack of intake. If you are well nourished and have no electrolyte issues prior to drinking distilled water the labs should be OK. It just gives an appreciation for how sophisticated the body is. I would not recommend this as a chronic diet.

Dr. Dan E. Fisher answered:

Is it normal to urinate alot when drinking 3 to 4 liters of water daily? However my urine is clear and it doesn't hurt or burn.

Once an hour.

Micturition
Unless you are waking up to urinate you are excreting 4000 ml of urine in about 12 hours. That is about 325 cc/hr which is about the normal capacity of a bladder. Therefore you should be urinating about once an hour.

How many litres of water we should take daily ideally? Is drinking water just before going to bed at night is good/bad for health?

WATER INTAKE

Nocturnal
IT'S NOT WHAT GOES IN THAT'S MOST IMPORTANT, IT'S WHAT VOLUME OF URINE YOU MAKE. A NON-STONE FORMING PERSON WITH NORMAL HEART SHOULD MAKE 1-1.5 LITERS OF URINE PER 24 HR. IF YOURE A STONE FORMER THIS # IS 2-2.5L/24 HRS. TO PREVENT STONE FORMATION. HOT DAYS WILL TAKE MORE AND INACTIVE DAYS WILL TAKE LESS. WHEN YOU DRINK IT ONLY DETERMINES WHEN IT WILL COME OUT.

Help please. Could drinking a liter of water before an ecg effect the results?

Water

Electrocardiogram
A liter of water in a normal person is unlikely to change the ECG . In a patient in poor fluid and electrolyte status, it is possible.
