Many people try to meet the fluid intake so as not to dehydration. Indeed the need for fluid intake needs to be considered, but it is not impossible we also experience excess fluid is not it?

"We can also overhydrate, although it is very rare in a society that generally does have good body health," said Pennie Taylor, a certified diet researcher at CSIRO Animal, Food and Health Sciences.

For people with chronic heart disease, heart failure, and kidney failure, Taylor emphasized the need for special attention to avoid overhydration. The reason, they can have a little more water content and the condition is difficult to overcome.

"If you consume too much water, the important levels of minerals such as sodium can go down drastically, causing a condition known as hyponatremia that can keep the body from holding too much water," Taylor said as quoted by ABC Australia on Tuesday

Hyponatremia can cause the cells in the body to swell and this condition is very dangerous for the brain, can even cause death. Hyponatremia is also susceptible to athletes who experience heat stroke and need rehydration. Symptoms of hyponatremia include confusion, disorientation, nausea, and vomiting.

Taylor recommends drinking four to six standard glasses of water per day. However, the amount of water can be increased if it is in place with hot temperatures and you are very actively engaged in activities. Conversely, when temperatures are cold, water consumption can be reduced.

Because, you also get water from drinks or other foods. Taylor revealed, the average person gets four glasses or one liter of water per day from consumed such as watermelon, tea, coffee, milk, and yoghurt.

"To find out if we are hydrated enough, look at your urine color.If the color is pale yellow, you can be sure you need more fluids," Taylor said.
