Be careful: Hyper or over hydration is not necessarily a beneficial thing. Water is good for you and you should keep yourself adequately hydrated daily. This usually means 8-10 8 ounce glasses of water throughout the day, of course depending on your perspiration rate, athletics and activities. Over hydration and too much consumption over a short period can lead to low sodium in your blood stream & b harmful. ...Read more

Is drinking a gallon and half of water a day bad for you?

Water: You should drink adequate water that is needed to quench your thirst. Drinking more than what you needed can certainly put your health in jeopardy including low sodium which potentially could cause seizure. However if you drinking that much water to quench your thirst on a daily basis, then you shoud get an evaluation, it can be a form of diabetes (mellitus or insipidus). ...Read more

Help please! is drinking a gallon of water a day bad?

Help please! is drinking a gallon of water a day bad?

Probably OK: A gallon a day is probably more than what you need if you are not exercising vigorously or sweating a lot. However if you are feeling well otherwise, there is no harm done. Be sure that you don't have any health conditions which may cause you to have excessive thirst (diabetes is just one example) and urination. ...Read more

Is drinking a 106 ounces of water a day bad for you because that's what i drink nothing else no soda and especially no caffeine i liove water?

Not too much but...: There is no consensus on how much water to drink but most agree it's wise to drink 1/2 to 2/3 ounce per pound of weight a day, so a 160 lb person should drink 80-107 oz./day. Drinking soda is very unhealthy. Water is the best thing to drink. However, if your city's water is fluoridated i advise drinking fluoride-free water.

Drink little water during the day but at night i drink about 2 litres while chilling out. Is this good or bad?

Drink little water during the day but at night i drink about 2 litres while chilling out. Is this good or bad?

Water: I believe on a usual day we need 1 liter of water per day and on very very hot days we need 2 to3 liters per day, drinking too much water can lead to water intoxication which can cause confusion, seizures, coma and death due to low sodium etc at night drinking so much water can keep you up, especially if you are gulping down huge quantities of water. ...Read more

Stop with water..: The amount of water you drink is actually detrimental to anyones health. Stop drinking so much because you are washing away all of the electrolytes in you body. Instead of water...Try drinks like gatorade and try not to drink so much. See if that helps the thirst and avoid caffein. It is a diuretic. ...Read more
