My cat drinks from my water glass along side my bed at night. Can I get sick if I drink from it afterwards?

Yes: We humans have the most dangerous bite because of our germs. Animals and pets can carry infectious materials. In particular cats are know to have a higher spread of cryptococcosis, this is a specific high risk to pregnant ladies for their unborn child. In particular the task of cleaning the litter box should be left to a no pregnant individual. Enjoy your pet, but keep body fluids to their self. ...Read more

Don't dink so much: Being hydrated is great and its good you drink water. You should drink about 8 glasses of water a day. However if you are waking up in the middle of the night to urinate then you need to limit your intake of water previous to bed time. Try not to drink water 2 hours before bed time or if you do limit it. The closer to bedtime you drink fluids you'll likely have to get up in the middle to urinate. ...Read more

Do doctors believe that drinking bottled water from plastic bottles is ok? Or should I try to get water in glass bottles? Thx for any guidance.

Do doctors believe that drinking bottled water from plastic bottles is ok? Or should I try to get water in glass bottles? Thx for any guidance.

Best avoid plastic: I can't speak for other docs but I prefer to avoid plastic bottles. I believe fluoridated water is unhealthy. If your community water is not fluoridated then get a water filter & drink filtered tap water- you can put it in glass or steel bottles to drink when away from home. If your water if fluoridated a filter won't help. In that case, drink reverse osmosis or spring water from glass bottles. ...Read more

Causes may be mechanical (obstruction, or the stomach outlet narrowed from healing of past inflammation, treated by endoscopic dilation), post-inflammatory (due to swelling of the stomach lining from ulcers, treated with acid blockers), or neurologic (as with diabetes, treated with rx that stimulates motility--domperidone, erythromycin, reglan, (metoclopramide) zelnorm) ...Read more

I drink 10 glass water daily and have no jaundice. My skin is dry how can I get white sclera easily?

Yellow pigmentation: Some people will get increased pigmentation of the sclera and conjunctiva (white of the eyes) as they age. A yellowish benign growth called a "pinguecula" can appear at either side of the colored part of the eye. Sometimes these can be raised and inflamed as well. Usually they do not require treatment. Any new pigmented place on the eye should be checked by an eye doctor. ...Read more

How many glass of water should we drink every day?

How many glass of water should we drink every day?

It depends: One common rule of thumb is that the number of ounces we drink each day should be half our weight in pounds (or about equal our weight in kg), so a 120 lb. Person should drink 60 oz. This does not have to all be water, though water is the best overall choice. However, if it is hot out or you are very active you need to drink more. See http://nutrition.About.

What is the resion for drink more water in a day. I am taking 10 -15 glass water in a day. Please answer. Thanks in advance?

Sounds like a lot!: Water is necessary for survival, so that is the reason we drink it. The amount we need depends on how much water we lose (through breathing, sweating, urinating, and sometimes by diarrhea). If one's urine is only faintly yellow or close to colorless, then he is drinking a lot of water already! "water" actually means any drinks and any foods that contain water. ...Read more

I heard that for every glass/shot of alcohol a person has, they should drink a glass of water to equal it out. Is this true? What is the reason for it?

Yes, but: Alcohol is dehydrating. That's why it's good to drink water. Women should only drink half as much as men. They make less enzymes that metabolize alcohols. Really women should not consume more than 1 drink daily--certainly two at most. ...Read more

Constipation: Sounds like you're describing constipation. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/constipation/basics/definition/con-20032773 for more info. Fiber, fluids & exercise are 1st non-drug options. Pain may be due to anal fissure (skin tear) as a consequence of pushing out hard stool. Or perhaps even hemorrhoids (although you're kinda young for 'rrhoids). Many OTC options too. ...Read more

Is drinking a glass of water everytime I want something a good idea?

SORT OF: Probably, but I'm assuming it's when you want something to eat and there aren't so many glasses you get bloated and you don't have heart failure or something where overloading with water would be harmful. It might be a good way to convince your stomach you weren't hungry.
Everything in moderation - even water. ...Read more
