How Much Water Should You Drink?
« on: September 26, 2022, 12:27:49 PM »
How much water should someone drink? It's a common question, especially among recent kidney donors. I ran across this 19-minute podcast that shares the latest information on this topic, and dispels common myths: https://www.npr.org/2022/09/20/1124133408/water-water-everywhere-but-how-much-do-you-really-need

There was also a 2004 study into this question, as well as the right levels of sodium and potassium, which are also important considerations for kidney health. A summary of that study can be found here (and it has a link to the full study): https://www.nationalacademies.org/news/2004/02/report-sets-dietary-intake-levels-for-water-salt-and-potassium-to-maintain-health-and-reduce-chronic-disease-risk
