Side Effects Of Drinking Excess Water: Drinking water is very beneficial to keep the body healthy. It not only removes the problem of dehydration but also works to keep the skin healthy. Of course, there are countless benefits of drinking water, but its right quantity is necessary. Most people wake up in the morning and consume water, but many people drink excessive amounts of water to avoid problems like pimples and dryness, which can be harmful. Doctors generally believe that a healthy person should drink only 2-4 liters of water a day. However, its quantity can also increase slightly in the gym, exercise, hard work, or heat. But in general, if you drink more than 5-6 liters of water daily, then it can also have a bad effect on your health. Let’s know from Professor Dr. DS Martolia, Head Professor, Community Medicine, Government Medical College (Kannauj) about the disadvantages of drinking more water and how to know if you are drinking more water.

Why is it harmful to drink more water?
According to Dr. Mertolia, if you drink more water than your body needs throughout the day or if you feel thirsty every two to three minutes, then you should be careful. Because the habit of feeling thirsty every minute indicates a mental and neurological problem. Tell that, drinking more water reduces the amount of sodium in the blood. As a result of this, problems like restlessness, fatigue, dizziness, low BP, and nausea start to occur. Apart from this, drinking excessive amounts of water increases the swelling of water in the internal cells of the body. When the brain passes through this condition, many neurological changes take place and the condition of coma also develops. In medical language, this condition responsible for coma is called hyponatremia.

How much water to drink in a day
About 70 percent of the human body depends on water. In this situation, a lack of water in the body can be harmful. However, drinking the right amount of water is necessary. Normally drinking two to three liters of water in a day is good for health. If you want to know the exact amount of water to drink, then take a 1-liter bottle for it and use it to drink water throughout the day. By doing this you can easily find out how much water you drink throughout the day.

Drinking more water can increase weight
According to experts, there is a risk of increasing the weight of drinking more water. Because our weight increases only in that situation when fat gets accumulated in our body. This fat also contains the amount of water in the cells. In this situation, if you drink more water, then the kidney is not able to remove all the water from the body. This excess water spoils the balance of electrolytes in the body, due to which water gets accumulated in the body and your weight increases.

Swelling in the brain can also be a problem
According to Dr. Mertolia, sodium level decreases rapidly when there is an excess amount of water in the body. Decreased sodium levels can increase the risk of swelling in the brain. Let us tell you that drinking excessive amounts of water leads to abnormally low sodium in the body, due to which the risk of hyponatremia also increases. Because sodium is a kind of electrolyte, which works to control the amount of water in our body.

Excess water can have a bad effect on the kidney

Let us tell you that drinking more water can cause the problem of overhydration, which directly affects the kidneys. In such a situation, if there is more water in the body then there will be difficulty in filtering. This can also increase the risk of kidney failure.
