Constipated... again? Get on the water wagon!
[QUOTE=nrgtrakr;1665321]While in the Army I witnessed two cases of water intoxication in two very healthy and physically fit individuals - an MD that worked for me, and my XO (a triathlete). It took a couple of days to get their electrolytes back to normal.
When I was in the Army from 1969 to 1970, it was not "water" that seemed to be the most intoxicating among those I witnessed.
Since we are covering the physical signs of dehydration, I have to add this. If you are constipated... come on, drink water. It is not a secret, any longer.
If you are not constipated... avoid eating left over chicken that is a week old.
Either way, an important dehydrated symptom for one, and the other will dehydrate you because of the symptoms of another mistake. The solution to both is to drink H2O and toss out questionable food.
