How to take fluid properly?
The specific recommended fluid intake should be based on the urine output. Your doctor will help to to calculate it. The usual recommendation is for daily intake of daily urinary output plus 500 ml (for insensible losses).
Patients should avoid binge drinking and be vigilant in replacing extra fluid losses in hot weather and during episodes of diarrhea or vomiting. In addition, foods high in potassium such as bananas, citrus, prunes, artichoke, mushrooms and zucchinis, etc, should also be eaten less.
