    Here you will get answers that have a broad range. There are those on this forum who will extol that they drink in excess of a gallon of water per day, not including other sources of fluid. That is just crazy. A moderate amount of water/fluids per day is more like 2 liters and that should probably include other sources of fluids, coffee, tea, milk, juices, soups. If you are drinking excessive quantities of fluids, you definitely need to have regular blood sodium and other electrolyte monitoring by blood tests.

    Two liters a day is the minimum you should be drinking; more if you sweat or exercise a lot, or live in a very hot climate. Your urine should be pale yellow ("straw colored"); if it is dark yellow, orange or has a brownish tinge, it may be to insufficient water intake.

They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
