View Full Version : Water Intake

I am curious as to when I should cut back on my water intake? I currently cut back on my water intake after I eat dinner so I don't have high cath volume when I cath at 11 and 5. I still drink around 80 oz of water during day. My output is lower and darker in color at my 5am cathing but it clears up real good during the day.

Everyone of course is individual. It sounds like a pretty good regimen. The amount of total fluids is good, and as long as none of your caths are over about 450-500 cc. you should be fine. It is normal to have more concentrated/darker colored urine the first thing in the morning. As long as it is clear you do not need to be concerned.
