What Happens If… You Drink Too Much Water?

Is there such a thing as “drinking too much water”? You might be surprised to learn that there really is.

Even though our bodies are (usually) made up of between 45% and 65% water, you really can overdo it when it comes to chugging down the good stuff.

While plenty of people have the opposite problem and find themselves mysteriously thirsty at the end of the day, it’s worth remembering that you can flood your body by drinking too much H2O – although it’s rare for healthy adults to do this.

It may occasionally happen with athletes after exercising, as well as anyone who struggles with schizophrenia, or who takes diuretics, antipsychotic drugs or MDMA.

People who suffer from congestive heart failure, liver disease, kidney problems, uncontrolled diabetes or syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) are also at a higher risk of being over-hydrated.
