Do I Need to Drink Water?
Not just water. You need to drink plenty of liquids like water, juice, milk, and soup. You have to replace the fluids you lose every day. But check with your doctor if he or she has told you to limit how much you drink.
Donít wait until you feel thirsty to start drinking. With age you may lose some of your sense of thirst. In addition, medicine can sometimes cause you to lose fluids. If you are drinking enough, your urine will be pale yellow. If it is a bright or dark yellow, you need to drink more liquids.
Do you have a urinary control problem? If your answer is yes, donít stop drinking a lot of liquid. But, talk to your doctor for help with your urinary control problem.
