Water Enema Side Effects
Potentially - yes: Water alone injected as an enema can be absorbed by the baby and dilute the balance of the blood. If enough water is absorbed, the baby can have seizures when this balance crosses a critical level. Small amounts (ounce or two) are unlikely to cause a problem, but I never recommend them. ...Read more

More restroom time:
Other than a marked increase in awareness of where restrooms are located after taking lasix, (furosemide) the biggest side effect profile to monitor would be that if the medication works too well, you may urinate out too much of your electrolytes, and result in a low potassium level. Also, too much diuresis may result in alteration of your kidney function.
This is why periodic lab monitoring is important. ...Read more
No: The pH in you stomach is about 1.5. You have hydrochloric acid in your stomach secreted by the parietal cells which destroy most microbes that you might swallow on food.

Is not drinking water for a day or two really not good? What are its side effects? Both inside and out. Thank you very much :)
Not good.: Body needs water to carry out basic physiologic processes and excrete waste. Kidneys must excrete about 1 liters per day in the average human. If you do not replace this (and a little extra) you will become progressively dehydrated developing constipation, cotton mouth, headache and disorientation. If this is prolonged you will develop irreversible kidney failure. ...Read more
Not the right: Approach. Water alone accounts for maybe 10% of your weight, and drinking more than normal won't cause you to lose more. Hydration with purified spring water is important, but not the end all. You can have dilute your necessary electrolytes from overdiluting them with too much water. So, be careful! Contact your PCP to work together for a solution is best! You want your electrolytes 2B N balance. ...Read more

What would be d side effects or up coming health issues if a person starts taking 1 tablespoon of salt in a small cup of water daily 1 tablespoon??
Depends. ..: If you have normal kidneys after you have absorbed that much salt your kidneys will just filter it out of your blood and you will pee it out. On the other hand if your kidneys are abnormal you will not be able to get rid of the excess salt load and you will start retaining water to dilute the concentration of salt and your B/P will rise and all sorts of havoc will ensue. Don't do it! ...Read more
None: That's a common remedy people use for sore throat. The only problem would be if you have diabetes and you use too much honey, if the water is too hot and you are not careful or you have sensitivity to citrus as in stomach acid. Otherwise, hmm, I think it tastes good, along with some tea. ...Read more

Is water-based lubricant edible? Can it be eaten without any side effects if applied to penis and taken oral?
StickToFrozenBananas: Well, if you put a bunch of it in a bowl, sprinkled some sugar on it & ate it for breakfast, you'd most probably end-up with a stomach ache. But if you happened to ingest a small amount that had been coating an erect penis (of a normal human, of course), I imagine nothing much would happen except maybe an enhancement of your gag reflex, & if it had spermicide in it, you wouldn't want much more of it ...Read more
