Why patients with schizophernia drink a lot of water?

Why patients with schizophernia drink a lot of water?

Different reasons: One common phenomenon is anticholinergic (and other) effects of antipsychotics and meds for side effects commonly used (like benztropine) to treat schizophrenia and related disorders. They provoke dry mouth as a collateral effect. Other causes are possible, but this is one common reason.

What copper levels in drinking water are potentially hazardous for wilson's disease patients?

What copper levels in drinking water are potentially hazardous for wilson's disease patients?

0.1ppm: Drinking water rarely exceeds 0.1 parts per million (ppm), deemed a safe level for wilson's disease. Testing is not so much for fear of exceeding 0.1ppm, but to make sure your home/school is not prone to excessive leaching (example: acidic water in copper pipes). Consistent levels <0.1ppm mean leaching is unlikely. Flushing copper pipes (let water run) is recommended before drinking/cooking. ...Read more

Does kidney patient can drink chlorophyll water?

Does kidney patient can drink chlorophyll water?

I think so: Chlorophyll, of course, is responsible for the green pigment in all our healthy greens.

Type 1 blood sugar, how high does it goes, before i can't get my remicade (infliximab) injection? Patient has been drinking a lot of water, eat small beef stick to bring it down, her suger level.

If : If you have type 1 diabetes, why not take a dose of fast acting insulin? Humalog, apidra, (insulin glulisine) and NovoLog work within 15 minutes to start lowering the sugar. I do not know of any clear glucose level at which you could not get remicade. Makes little sense why there would be since glucose can vary with Insulin and over hours. Your rheumatologist may not be comfortable dosing your Remicade though if your sugar is high. Contrary to popular belief, drinking water will not lower your sugar. And beef sticks sure don't. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Forming crystals and stones is a constant process and the most important factor to prevent recurrence is keep the concentration of all stone ingredients in the urine for stone formation always below their threshold to form crystals.
