Drink Lots When Break Fasting, Can Happen Overhydration?

When met at Sky Loft Restaurant, All Seasons Hotel Jakarta, Thamrin, Central Jakarta, recently, clinical nutrition specialist Dr. Dian Permatasari, MGizi, SpGK said that overhydration in healthy and normal people is actually very rare.

"Water is adjusted to the needs of our body is 30-40 milligrams per kilogram of body weight per day," he added.

To meet the intake of body fluids, simply by consuming water as much as 8 glasses per day is no exception at the time of fasting. White water requirement per day can be fulfilled with 2-4-2 formation, that is 2 glasses during breaking, 4 glass after breaking until before sleep, and 2 glass at dawn.
But Dr. Dian reminds patients with heart disease and patients who have kidney disorders that overhydration can indeed happen to them. At the time of overhydration, excess fluid that enters the body will make the sodium content in the blood stream is reduced.
Sodium serves to keep the fluid balance outside and inside the cells of the human body. When the body is deprived of sodium, the fluid outside the cell will go in, causing the cell to swell.
"If most of the water can be submerged, then shortness of breath.If shortness of breath can swell the whole body, consequently could die," he concluded.
Therefore, Dr. Dian advises patients with heart disease and patients who have kidney disorders to consult with a physician first before fasting.
