Sleep disturbances as a result of drinking too much water before bed are fraught with many troubles, from weakness in the morning to heart disease. Medical News Today writes about it.
Scientists point to the consequences of nocturia - urinary disorders, when more than 40% of the daily urine value is excreted at night. If a person does not regularly get enough sleep due to night trips to the toilet, this threatens memory impairment, loss of concentration, sudden mood swings, and a feeling of constant fatigue. Moreover, the risk of obesity, diabetes, depression, heart disease increases.
Nocturia is more common in older people, but the habit of drinking water at night can ruin life at any age. And here the question arises: how much and what to drink during the day, so as not only not to harm yourself, but also to help the body perform its functions.
It is known that it is recommended to drink at least two liters of clean non-carbonated water per day. At the same time, you should not pour water into yourself by force, it is better to drink a little more when you are thirsty.
Water is a universal helper for all occasions. You cannot do without it after physical exertion, emotional excitement or a stormy feast. It maintains a healthy weight, improves mood, stimulates brain activity and prevents headaches. And if symptoms of dehydration are found - dry mouth and nose, peeling of the skin, loss of concentration - the amount of water you drink needs to be significantly increased.
Scientists also remind that prolonged exposure to the sun, increased physical activity, diabetes, diarrhea or vomiting, alcohol consumption, fever with viral infections are fraught with dehydration. And they warn: dehydration is deadly if a person loses more than 10% of the water contained in the body.
