I am almost 50 years old. I drink 2 glasses of water beforedinner and 1 glass of water before sleeping. During night, I get up 3 to 4 times to pass urine. Is it normal?
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.
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

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.

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

Hi! I was drinking a cold glass of water and my throat was cut/pierced by a frozen icicle from the water. It's bleeding and I don't know what to do?
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.
