We are often told that drinking plenty of water is good for our health. But few are reminded that it is advisable to check the body through this action. True, there are many signs after drinking water that can warn of illness. The most common are the following five easy-to-miss anomalies:
Edema after drinking water is common in people with poor kidney function and kidney disease, including cancer.
After water enters the human body, it is normally eliminated through metabolism in the kidneys. But if the kidneys have problems, the water will not be metabolized in time, resulting in edema. In the first stage, edema of the eyelids and lower extremities is common, and as the disease progresses, generalized edema occurs.
In addition, edema after drinking a lot of water can also be a sign of people with blood clots, vascular disease, blood fat and poor circulation. At this time, the amount of water in the blood increases, the metabolism slows down, causing the body to have a serious water retention phenomenon, medically called edema.
2. Discomfort, upset stomach
Drinking a lot of water can cause gas and bloating for a short time, but this will soon go away after you have urinated. However, if even after not drinking too much, you still feel agitated, uncomfortable, or still don’t feel better after urinating, it’s best to see a doctor. Because there is a good chance that you have had problems with your liver, kidneys or stomach.
Especially when the feeling of fullness is accompanied by diarrhea after drinking too much water at once, these organs are likely to have tumors.
3. Unable to urinate
Medicine calls this condition oliguria and anuria, which means drinking a lot of water but not being able to urinate normally.
If you drink a lot of water but don’t feel the urge to urinate or urinate very little compared to the amount you drink, your body has a problem. The most common are acute renal failure, nephritis, tubular nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, or urinary system dysfunction.
4. Dry mouth
If you just stopped drinking or if you drink enough water every day but still have dry mouth, it means you have an illness. Clinically, this is a common symptom in diabetics or people with Sjogren’s syndrome.
Sjogren’s syndrome is a chronic systemic autoimmune inflammatory disease of unknown etiology. The disease is characterized by dry mouth, dry eyes and other mucous membranes due to lymphocytic infiltration of the exocrine glands and decreased gland function. The disease affects other exocrine glands or other organs.
According to the UK diabetes health website (Diabetes.co.uk), people with diabetes are more prone to dry mouth, even if they drink lots of water or have just finished drinking it. Persistently high blood sugar can slow down saliva production. Dry mouth can then lead to a number of other conditions, such as gingivitis and thrush.
5. Urinate immediately, urinate several times
The most common cause of this condition is impaired kidney function or other serious kidney diseases like nephritis, nephrosis, tumor growth etc. Because it is the main organ responsible for hydrogen metabolism and urine production in the body.
If you only increase the frequency of urination and the amount of urine is not large, you need to beware of urinary tract infections and urinary stones. Prostate diseases including: prostate enlargement, prostate fibroids, prostatitis, prostate cancer are also notable causes. Because they enlarge the prostate and put pressure on the bladder, the male urethra makes men drink a lot of water, urinate quickly, urinate quickly, urinate once every 30 minutes, urinate often, urinate at night…
If you just stopped drinking water, you have an urgent need to urinate or urinate, even if you do not drink too much, it is probably related to bladder sphincter disease. Diabetes insipidus or diabetes insipidus are also diseases that cause rapid urination and frequent urination. It is best to see a doctor as soon as possible for early detection and treatment.
