Sodium requirement of adult cats for maintenance based on plasma aldosterone concentration. (1/1487)

The sodium requirement of adult cats for maintenance was determined using a randomized block design of eight dietary sodium treatments (0.1, 0.4, 0.5, 0.66, 0.8, 1.2, 1.6 or 2.0 g Na/kg in a casein-lactalbumin-based purified diet) administered for periods of 4 wk. A total of 35 adult specific-pathogen-free domestic shorthaired cats (26 males and 9 females, 1.5-3 y of age) was given an equilibration diet (2 g Na/kg) for 14 d before assignment (or reassignment) to the treatments. A total of 12 cats (8 males, 4 females) was randomly assigned to the lowest six levels of sodium, and four cats to the highest two sodium levels. Cats consuming the diet containing 0.1 g Na/kg had significantly elevated aldosterone concentration in plasma, and packed cell volume. In addition, these cats exhibited anorexia, body weight loss, reduced urinary specific gravity and sodium excretion, and had a negative sodium balance. However, adult cats did not develop polydypsia and polyuria reported in sodium-deficient kittens. Cats given the diet containing 0.66 g Na/kg did not have an increased packed cell volume, but aldosterone concentration in the plasma was significantly elevated. However, cats given diets containing >/=0.8 g Na/kg had plasma aldosterone concentrations +info)

Assessment of swallowing and referral to speech and language therapists in acute stroke. (2/1487)

The best clinical assessment of swallowing following acute stroke, in order to decide whether to refer a patient to a speech and language therapist (SLT), is uncertain. Independently of the managing clinical team, we prospectively investigated 115 patients (51 male) with acute stroke, mean age 75 years (range 24-94) within 72 h of admission, using a questionnaire, structured examination and timed water swallowing test. Outcome variables included referral to and intervention by a speech and language therapist (SLT), dietary modification, respiratory complications and death. Of those patients in whom an SLT recommended intervention, 97% were detected by an abnormal quantitative water swallowing test; specificity was 69%. An SLT was very unlikely to recommend any intervention if the test was normal. Inability to perform a water test and/or abnormality of the test was associated with significantly increased relative risks of death, chest infection and dietary modification. A timed water swallowing test can be a useful test of swallowing and may be used to screen patients for referral to a speech and language therapist after acute stroke.  (+info)

Effect of meat (beef, chicken, and bacon) on rat colon carcinogenesis. (3/1487)

High intake of red meat or processed meat is associated with increased risk of colon cancer. In contrast, consumption of white meat (chicken) is not associated with risk and might even reduce the occurrence of colorectal cancer. We speculated that a diet containing beef or bacon would increase and a diet containing chicken would decrease colon carcinogenesis in rats. One hundred female Fischer 344 rats were given a single injection of azoxymethane (20 mg/kg i.p.), then randomized to 10 different AIN-76-based diets. Five diets were adjusted to 14% fat and 23% protein and five other diets to 28% fat and 40% protein. Fat and protein were supplied by 1) lard and casein, 2) olive oil and casein, 3) beef, 4) chicken with skin, and 5) bacon. Meat diets contained 30% or 60% freeze-dried fried meat. The diets were given ad libitum for 100 days, then colon tumor promotion was assessed by the multiplicity of aberrant crypt foci [number of crypts per aberrant crypt focus (ACF)]. The ACF multiplicity was nearly the same in all groups, except bacon-fed rats, with no effect of fat and protein level or source (p = 0.7 between 8 groups by analysis of variance). In contrast, compared with lard- and casein-fed controls, the ACF multiplicity was reduced by 12% in rats fed a diet with 30% bacon and by 20% in rats fed a diet with 60% bacon (p < 0.001). The water intake was higher in bacon-fed rats than in controls (p < 0.0001). The concentrations of iron and bile acids in fecal water and total fatty acids in feces changed with diet, but there was no correlation between these concentrations and the ACF multiplicity. Thus the hypothesis that colonic iron, bile acids, or total fatty acids can promote colon tumors is not supported by this study. The results suggest that, in rats, beef does not promote the growth of ACF and chicken does not protect against colon carcinogenesis. A bacon-based diet appears to protect against carcinogenesis, perhaps because bacon contains 5% NaCl and increased the rats' water intake.  (+info)

Nitrogen retention by lambs fed oscillating dietary protein concentrations. (4/1487)

Nitrogen excreted by beef cattle can be retained in manure or lost by volatilization to the atmosphere or by runoff and percolation into surface or ground water. Increasing the retention of dietary N should decrease environmental losses. To this end, the effects of oscillating concentrations of dietary CP on nutrient retention were determined using lambs fed a 90% concentrate diet. Ten St. Croix lambs (average BW = 27 kg) were used in two 5x5 Latin square experiments. Dietary treatments were as follows: 1) 10% CP, 2) 12.5% CP, 3) 15% CP, 4) 10% and 15% CP diets oscillated at 24-h intervals, and 5) 10% and 15% CP diets oscillated at 48-h intervals. Supplemental N was provided by cottonseed meal in Trial 1 and by a 50:50 (N basis) blend of cottonseed meal and urea in Trial 2. Each period of the Latin square lasted 35 d, with excreta collection the final 8 d. Nitrogen retention increased linearly (P<.01) with increasing N intake in both trials (.77, 1.33, and 1.89 g/d for 10, 12.5, and 15% CP, respectively, in Trial 1; .94, 1.78, and 2.19 g/d for 10, 12.5, and 15% CP, respectively, in Trial 2). Compared with continuously feeding the 12.5% CP diet, oscillating the 10 and 15% CP diets on a 24-h basis did not affect N retention (P>.10) in either trial (1.62 and 1.56 g/d for Trials 1 and 2, respectively). Oscillating dietary CP at 48-h intervals did not affect N retention in Trial 2 (1.82 g/d) but increased (P<.05) N retention by 38% in Trial 1 (1.87 g/d). Phosphorus, K, and Na retention and excretion were not affected by dietary treatments in Trial 1. In Trial 2, P retention increased (linear, P<.05) with increasing dietary CP and was greater (P<.05) in lambs on the 48-h oscillation treatment than in lambs fed the 12.5% CP diet. These results suggest that oscillating the dietary CP concentrations might potentially increase the utilization of N by ruminants fed high-concentrate diets.  (+info)

Effect of individual or combined ablation of the nuclear groups of the lamina terminalis on water drinking in sheep. (5/1487)

The subfornical organ (SFO), organum vasculosum of the lamina terminalis (OVLT), and median preoptic nucleus (MnPO) were ablated either individually or in various combinations, and the effects on drinking induced by either intravenous infusion of hypertonic 4 M NaCl (1.3 ml/min for 30 min) or water deprivation for 48 h were studied. Ablation of either the OVLT or SFO alone did not affect drinking in response to intravenous 4 M NaCl, although combined ablation of these two circumventricular organs substantially reduced but did not abolish such drinking. Ablation of the MnPO or MnPO and SFO together also substantially reduced, but did not abolish, drinking in response to intravenous hypertonic NaCl. Only near-total destruction of the lamina terminalis (OVLT, MnPO, and part or all of the SFO) abolished acute osmotically induced drinking. The large lesions also reduced drinking after water deprivation, whereas none of the other lesions significantly affected such drinking. None of these lesions altered feeding. The results show that all parts of the lamina terminalis play a role in the drinking induced by acute increases in plasma tonicity. The lamina terminalis appears to play a less crucial role in the drinking response after water deprivation than for the drinking response to acute intravenous infusion of hypertonic saline.  (+info)

Use of doxycycline-controlled gene expression to reversibly alter milk-protein composition in transgenic mice. (6/1487)

A reverse tetracycline transactivator-encoding cDNA under the control of the mammary specific beta-lactoglobulin promoter was linked to a bovine alpha-lactalbumin transcription unit driven by a reverse tetracycline-controlled transactivator/doxycycline-inducible human cytomegalovirus promoter. The construct was microinjected into eggs from alpha-lactalbumin-deficient mice. These mice produce a highly viscous lactose-free milk and have a shortened lactation period. Mice from three out of the nine transgenic lines investigated expressed reverse tetracycline-controlled transactivator mRNA in their lactating mammary glands at levels detectable by Northern analysis. Following doxycycline addition to the drinking water, lactation was fully restored in animals from the three lines. Doxycycline removal resulted in a reversal of phenotype. The observed mammary-specific and high expression of the doxycycline inducible reporter gene (up to 5.2 mg of recombinant alpha-lactalbumin.mL-1 of milk, i.e. up to 13-fold induction) opens up exciting prospects to use the tetracycline system to study the development and functioning of the mammary gland, and to control the production level of active pharmaceutical proteins in the milk of transgenic animals.  (+info)

Effect of prolonged administration of a urinary kinase inhibitor, ebelactone B on the development of deoxycorticosterone acetate-salt hypertension in rats. (7/1487)

The effect of prolonged administration of a carboxypeptidase Y-like kininase inhibitor, ebelactone B (EB) (2-ethyl-3, 11-dihydroxy-4, 6, 8, 10, 12-pentamethyl-9-oxo-6-tetradecenoic 1, 3-lactone), on the development of deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt hypertension was tested. The systolic blood pressure (SBP) of non-treated 6-week-old Sprague-Dawley strain rats was gradually increased by DOCA-salt treatment from 137+/-2 mmHg (n=11) to 195+/-7 mmHg at 10 weeks of age. With daily oral administration of lisinopril (5 mg kg(-1), twice a day), which is an inhibitor of angiotensin converting enzyme, a major kininase in plasma, the development of hypertension was not suppressed. By contrast, administration of EB (5 mg kg(-1), twice a day), completely inhibited the development of hypertension (SBP: 146+/-1 mmHg, n=5, 10 weeks old). The reduced SBP at 10 weeks of age was equal to the SBP before any treatment (142+/-1 mmHg, n=5). Direct determination of mean blood pressure (MBP) in conscious, unrestrained rats confirmed that MBP elevation was completely inhibited by EB. Continuous subcutaneous infusion (5 mg kg(-1) day(-1)) of HOE140, a bradykinin B2 receptor antagonist, restored the elevation of SBP, which was suppressed by EB. The weights of left ventricle of DOCA-salt treated rats 10-weeks-old (0.36+/-0.02 g 100 g body weight(-1), n=11) was significantly reduced by EB (0.27+/-0.01, n=5), as were the sodium levels in serum, cerebrospinal fluid and erythrocyte. These findings suggested that EB is effective in preventing salt-related hypertension presumably by eliminating sodium retention.  (+info)

Long-term CCK-leptin synergy suggests a role for CCK in the regulation of body weight. (8/1487)

The gut peptide CCK is a nutrient-related signal important to the control of food intake. In the present studies, we observed that a single intraperitoneal injection of CCK (1-2 microgram/kg) given 2-3 h after intracerebroventricular leptin (2-5 microgram) reduced body weight and chow intake over the ensuing 48 h more than did leptin alone. CCK alone had no effect on either 48-h chow intake or body weight but significantly reduced feeding during a 30-min sucrose test. However, reduction of 30-min sucrose intake by CCK was not enhanced by prior intracerebroventricular leptin. The present data suggest that CCK can contribute to the regulation of body weight when central leptin levels are elevated.  (+info)

This study investigated the sensitivity of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and of Wistar Kyoto rats (WKR) to the antidipsogenic action of the tachykinin eledoisin (ELE). Drinking was evoked by: (a) intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection of angiotensin II, (b) subcutaneous (s.c.) administration of hypertonic NaCl (1.5 M; 1 ml/100 g b.wt.) or (c) 18 h of water deprivation with free access to food. In accordance with previous studies, the dipsogenic effect of all three treatments was exaggerated in the SHR. And when treated with i.c.v. ELE (12.5-25 ng/rat) they were far less sensitive than WKR to its antidipsogenic action on angiotensin-induced drinking. Smaller differences in strain sensitivity were also observed for the effect of ELE on cell dehydration- and on water deprivation-induced drinking, but only at the dose of 200 and 50 ng/rat, respectively. The different sensitivity of the SHR to the antidipsogenic effect of ELE supports the idea that tachykininergic mechanisms for control ...
Hydration dehydration cycles Hydration dehydration cycles We should drink fluids based on our food intake and activity level. On average drink 70 ml water with each chapati (or equivalent rice) that one eats. So a person eating 2 chapatis should drink only 150 ml. Food intake should be 3 to 4 Rotis or equivalent in each meal for an average person. Take small sips of water after every few bites. Day 1 Day 1 - Drink 1 glass of water (200 ml) with each meal. Total water intake 600 ml. Day 2 Day 2 - Drink 1 glass of water (200 ml) with each meal. Total water intake 600 ml. Day 3 Day 3 - Drink 200 ml water 90 minutes before each meal. Drink 1 more glass of water (200 ml) 45 minutes before each meal. Drink 1 more glass of water with each meal. Total water intake 1800 ml. Day 4 Day 4 - Drink 200 ml water 90 minutes before each meal.

Obesity has been pointed out as a worldwide epidemic. Data from the literature show that obesity can promote cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, and the increased activity of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) has been described as facilitating obesity-induced hypertension. In addition, RAS is also involved in hydroelectrolyte balance adjustments, and thus helping to regulate blood pressure. Therefore, the aims of the present study were, 1) to verify the changes in blood pressure and water intake induced by central ANG II in rats fed with a high-fat diet (HFD) diet; 2) to verify the participation of the AT1 receptors in the forebrain in the alterations of arterial pressure observed in rats fed with HFD; 3) to verify the daily water intake and urinary excretion, as well as the prandial consumption of water in rats fed with HFD. We used male Holtzman rats (290-320 g) that were fed a standard diet (DP, 5% calories from fat) or DH (45% calories from fat) for 6 weeks prior to testing. The ...
The aims of this study were to assess the dietary intake and monitor self-reported recovery quality and clinical symptomology of a male ultra-endurance runner who completed a multiday ultra-endurance running challenge covering 4,254 km from North Scotland to the Moroccan Sahara desert over 78 consecutive days. Food and fluid intakes were recorded and analyzed through dietary analysis software. Body mass (BM) was determined before and after running each day, and before sleep. Clinical symptomology and perceived recovery quality were recorded each day. Whole blood hemoglobin and serum ferritin were determined before and after the challenge. Total daily energy (mean ± SD: 23.2 ± 3.2MJ·day−1) and macronutrient intake (182 ± 31g·day−1 protein, 842 ± 115g·day−1 carbohydrate, 159 ± 55 g·day−1 fat) met consensus nutritional guidelines for endurance performance. Total daily water intake through foods and fluids was 4.8 ± 2.0L·day−1. Water and carbohydrate intake rates during running ...
We investigated the physiological and behavioural strategies by which lactating Ethiopian Somali goats endure repeated periods of water deprivation. The experiment lasted for 32 days and was divided into four periods of 8 days each. Measurements were taken during the first 4 days in each period. Seven does (W1) were watered once daily and seven does (W4) were watered once every 4th day. Rectal temperature was taken at 0800 and 1715 h. Blood samples were taken in the evening and milk samples in the morning. The goats were on pasture between 0900 to 1215 h and 1315 to 1630 h with behaviour recorded every 5 min. The does were supplemented with 300 g of concentrates per head per day. Plasma and milk osmolality were determined by freezing point depression. Plasma total protein was measured on a TS refractometer. Plasma vasopressin concentrations were analysed by radio-immunoassay. The mean daily water intake of W1 was 1897 ml compared with the calculated mean of 1075 ml in W4 (P , 0.001). The mean ...

Ha! Very funny. Sorry for being on the slightly serious side, but you could always get a showercap to protect your hair while you shower. Your body needs the water to function, and extended periods of low-water intake can lead to all sorts of long-term problems. I know its not the best advice, but there is also water additives (it being lemon, orange slices, cucumber, instant drinks like crystal lights) that can assist you to start liking water. The 8 glasses of water (although an outdated, over generalized research result) do not include only straight clear water. A cup of tea can count as 1 cup of water (as long as its not caffeinated). Juices, fruit, etc, also satisfy this requirement. Which is why people who drink no water or little water can continue to function; because theres water in a lot of non-liquid, non-tap water things. Ok, rant done. :) I love lists too. Very cute, especially for young children! ...
Adjust the rate of fluid intake to race pace: slower race pace = slower drinking rate; maximum intake of 500 ml/hr (4-6 oz every 20 min) for runners with greater than 5 hour marathon finishing times (10-11 min/mile pace). Weight monitoring is also important: if you gain weight during your workout or event, you are drinking too much.. For a more highly motivated runner/walker who desires a numeric range, a fluid calculator can provide an estimate of body fluid losses as a generalized strategy for fluid replacement. Participants concerned about peak performance are advised to understand their individualized fluid needs through use of this fluid calculator but ALWAYS defer to physiologic cues to increase fluid intake (thirst, concentrated dark urine, weight loss) or decrease fluid consumption (diluted or clear urination, bloating, weight gain) while participating. It is also important to recognize that if you use this method in one climate and then travel to a different climate for your event, ...
An interesting fact, The earth is covered with almost 70% water,andhumans are composed of about 75% water- our blood containing roughly the same salinity as the ocean water. There are roughly 10,000 actions within your body that are performed per second, which water is essential to. Waters chief job is to maintain a stable environment inside and around our cells,so we can be able to take in nutrition and eliminate wastes. It is also essential that your muscles, tendons, ligaments and all the fascia in our body stay hydrated. You see, our body is meant to slide and move internally, and all this sliding and moving is done on water basedsubstance. So if you are dehydrated, just moving around will cause excessive tension and friction, which will cause inflammation, dysfunction, andpain.. So where do you start? First,find out how much you are currently drinking. Use a journal or the note function on your smartphone. If your total water intake is below ½ your body weight in ounces of water, you ...
Prevention: • Drink plenty of fluids, dont wait until thirsty • Drink small amounts and often • Avoid drinks that contain caffeine and alcohol which are diuretics • It is essential to replace the sodium lost through sweating Symptoms: • Thirst • Decreased urine volume • Abnormally dark urine • Unexplained tiredness • Irritability • Lack of tears • Headache • Dry mouth • Dizziness Manoj Choyal .  If the water in the body is balanced, the urine will be a pale straw or lemonade color. When water loss from the body exceeds water intake, the kidneys need to conserve water, making the urine much more concentrated with waste products and subsequently darker in color. Dark yellow urine is a sure indicator that the individual is dehydrated and that the fluid consumption must be increased. Certain medicines and vitamins may cause the color of the urine to change. If any of these have been taken, this test is unreliable.   Manoj Choyal . HEAT RASH ...

Adolescents are the highest consumers of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs). Regular consumption of SSBs is associated with weight gain, obesity, chronic disease, poor academic achievement, and low diet quality. In contrast, drinking plain water (i.e., tap, bottled, and unflavored sparkling water) can help mitigate these effects and improve health outcomes. To develop and implement strategies to increase plain water intake among U.S. adolescents, understanding the factors associated with plain water intake is important.. The authors used data from the national 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), a school-based survey measuring health-risk behaviors among U.S. high school seniors. They examined students answers to the survey question, During the past seven days, how many times did you drink a bottle or glass of plain water? and looked at demographic, academic, and behavioral characteristics that were associated with the frequency of plain water intake.. Key findings from the study ...

You dont need to rely only on what you drink to meet your fluid needs. What you eat also provides a significant portion. For example, many fruits and vegetables, such as watermelon and spinach, are almost 100 percent water by weight.. In addition, beverages such as milk, juice and herbal teas are composed mostly of water. Even caffeinated drinks - such as coffee and soda - can contribute to your daily water intake. But water is your best bet because its calorie-free, inexpensive and readily available.. Sports drinks should be used only when youre exercising intensely for more than an hour. These drinks help replace electrolytes lost through perspiration and sugar needed for energy during longer bouts of exercise.. Energy drinks are different from sports drinks. Energy drinks generally arent formulated to replace electrolytes. Energy drinks also usually contain large amounts of caffeine or other stimulants, sugar, and other additives.. Your fluid intake is probably adequate if:. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Factors affecting water intakes of lactating dairy cows offered grass silages differing in fermentation and intake characteristics. AU - Dewhurst, RJ. AU - Offer, NW. AU - Thomas, C. PY - 1998/6. Y1 - 1998/6. N2 - he objective of this study was to investigate the effects of silage characteristics on water intake of lactating dairy cows and to examine the prediction of water intake. Sixteen grass silages, differing in fermentation and intake characteristics, were offered ad libitum to dairy cows in early lactation supplemented with 7 kg/day of concentrate (13·3 MJ metabolizable energy per kg dry matter (DM) and 216 g crude protein per kg DM). Four silages were offered in each of four incomplete change-over design experiments, consisting of three 3-week periods. Water intakes were recorded through individual Kent water meters and press water bowls over the final week of each period. Tree (drinking) water intake ranged from 20·1 to 89·9 (mean = 45·2; s.d. = 12·96) I/day whilst ...
Diabetes mellitus (DM) leads to the development of diabetic cardiomyopathy, which is associated with altered nitric oxide (NO)-soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC)-cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) signalling. Cardioprotective effects of elevated intracellular cGMP-levels have been described in different heart diseases. In the current study we aimed at investigating the effects of pharmacological activation of sGC in diabetic cardiomyopathy. Type-1 DM was induced in rats by streptozotocin. Animals were treated either with the sGC activator cinaciguat (10 mg/kg/day) or with placebo orally for 8 weeks. Left ventricular (LV) pressure-volume (P-V) analysis was used to assess cardiac performance. Additionally, gene expression (qRT-PCR) and protein expression analysis (western blot) were performed. Cardiac structure, markers of fibrotic remodelling and DNA damage were examined by histology, immunohistochemistry and TUNEL assay, respectively. DM was associated with deteriorated cGMP signalling in the myocardium
Ask any Florida resident and theyll agree - June 21 is most definitely not the First Day of Summer here in Hillsborough County.

Introduction. Water is essential to a wide variety of physiological functions in cell structure, metabolic transportation and temperature regulation, as well as in residual elimination (1). The human organism regulates body water content in order to maintain the equilibrium of fluid ingestion and excretion through the hypothalamic mechanism of thirst control, antidiuretic hormone regulation, renal function, breathing and perspiration (2,3).. The demand of water intake varies between subjects and depends on environmental factors such as climate conditions, lifestyle, physical activity and eating habits. The water intake should be sufficient to compensate daily losses (4). An appropriate hydration can reduce the risk of several diseases and physiological disturbances as headaches, obstipation, urolithiasis and renal malfunction (5). However, water consumption habits are complex and receive under-attention when evaluating eating habits (6).. Soccer is characterized as a high intensity exercise with ...
Dialysis is one of the methods of treatment available for those in the last stages of renal failure. It is also the most common renal failure treatment. This is because in order to be eligible for a transplant you have to meet several strenuous criteria and a matching kidney must be available to you. While waiting for a kidney transplant, people must undergo dialysis in order to keep dangerous toxins from building up in the blood. Dialysis creates a significant lifestyle change for the individual who must undergo the process. In most cases, the patient will have to attend a dialysis appointment at least 3 days per week, and the treatment itself can last upwards of 3 and even 4 hours.. There are two different types of dialysis available for renal failure. The first type is hemodialysis and the second is Peritoneal Dialysis. Hemodialysis involves diverting blood through a special machine as it flows through the body. The machine then scrubs the blood, removing toxins that have built up, before ...
Background Many children consume too little water and too many sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs), with potential negative consequences for health. Sustainably increasing water intake is therefore relevant, however challenging. Objective Explore drivers of and barriers to water intake during a one-year field study aiming to increase plain water consumption using Installation Theory in Polish preschool children. Method Caregivers of children (3-6 yrs) completed questionnaires on the childs preference for water and SSBs, water drinking habit strength (Self-Report Habit Index, range 1 (low)-5 (high habit)), and barriers to drinking water, at baseline and after one year. Children were first allocated to one of three interventions: CONTROL: no intervention; INFO: online coaching sessions on water health benefits (3 weeks); INFO + W: similar coaching sessions and home water delivery (3 weeks). After 3 months, half of INFO and INFO + W subjects were exposed to an online discussion forum (3 weeks) (+ ...
Total water intake at the reference level of 3.7 liters for adult men and 2.7 liters for adult women per day covers the expected needs of healthy, sedentary people in temperate climates. The obvious dietary sources of water are water itself and other beverages, but most foods contain some water as well. Most fruits and vegetables are almost 90% water, and many other foods like meats and cheese are approximately 50% water. The body also makes water during metabolism, when energy-yielding nutrients break down and their carbons, hydrogens, and oxygens combine to make carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O).According to the Dietary Reference Intakes: The Essential Guide to Nutrient Requirements, published by the Institute of Medicine (3), most people get adequate fluids by drinking when theyre thirsty. However, the report does add that prolonged physical activity and heat exposure will increase water losses and therefore may raise daily fluid needs. Very active individuals, who are continually exposed ...

A long-standing body of clinical observations associates low 24-h total water intake (TWI = water + beverages + food moisture) with acute renal disorders such as kidney stones and urinary tract infections. These findings prompted observational studies and experimental interventions comparing habitual low volume (LOW) and high volume (HIGH) drinkers. Investigators have learned that the TWI of LOW and HIGH differ by 1–2 L·d−1, their hematological values (e.g., plasma osmolality, plasma sodium) are similar and lie within the laboratory reference ranges of healthy adults and both groups appear to successfully maintain water-electrolyte homeostasis. However, LOW differs from HIGH in urinary biomarkers (e.g., reduced urine volume and increased osmolality or specific gravity), as well as higher plasma concentrations of arginine vasopressin (AVP) and cortisol. Further, evidence suggests that both a low daily TWI and/or elevated plasma AVP influence the development and progression of metabolic

Water use at Coty remains relatively consistent year on year when comparing FY17 and FY18 with approximately 1 million m3 of water used each year. Having established that the main impacts of water use come from the use of our sold products, we will still focus on ways to reduce our water consumption during the manufacturing stage. With the implementation of our EHS data tool, CR360, our manufacturing sites are now able to benchmark and compare data with other factories. In FY18, as a result of these comparisons, one of our factories established that water consumption was higher than the benchmark average and investigated ways in which water efficiencies could be realised during the batch change process. As a result of implementing a new process, water consumption for this particular process was 22% lower when compared to water consumption prior to this change ...

What is the recommended daily fluid intake for people on dialysis? If the daily fluid intake exceeds the recommended fluid intake for people on dialysis, fluid will build up in body between treatments. This can cause many problems.
Traveling to higher altitudes shouldnt necessarily worry you, especially if your medical condition is well controlled. But be mindful of your fluid consumption and sodium (salt). Dehydration can trigger AFib symptoms, and without intentionally consuming more water, it can happen more readily at high altitudes.. High altitudes can make you more symptomatic, especially if you have heart failure along with your AFib because the air is less oxygen-rich at higher altitudes. Your heart has to work harder to deliver the air to your body, especially if you already have a reduced pumping ability. Watch out for shortness of breath or other symptoms like pressure that makes it difficult to breathe deeply. If you experience these, you may want to find a way to descend to lower altitudes and see if that resolves the problem.. ...

The study examined perceptions of tap water safety and ...
The first aim of the present study was to investigate whether peripheral oedemas leading to an increase of the feet volumes would occur in 100-km ultra-marathoners. Based on the existing literature, we hypothesized that an ultra-marathon can lead to peripheral oedemas with an increase in the feet volume and that fluid overload would be associated with these increases. In case of fluid overload leading to an increase in the feet volume we hypothesized furthermore finding an association between changes in plasma [Na+] and the feet volume and a higher prevalence of EAH. In accordance with our hypothesis, fluid intake was related to the change in feet volume. Furthermore, we found an association between the change in plasma [Na+] and the change in the feet volume. In addition, four subjects (5.3%) developed asymptomatic EAH with plasma [Na+] between 132 and 134 mmol/L.. The most important finding in this study was that fluid intake was significantly and positively related to the change in the foot ...

That is clearly not true.. Try this - add a tablespoon of salt to a bucket of water, and wash your bike with it. It will rust bearings etc if it gets into them, and rinsing doesnt help much once it is in.. Also, washing up liquid is crap for disc brakes as well, it messes up the pads / rotors surfaces and make them squeak / not work correctly.. Why cheap out and use something inappropriate to save a few pennies on a thousand pound bike?. TBH, you are better washing with plain water than using washing up detergent. It gets the bike almost as clean, and is less likely to mess things up.. But - your money, your choice. Just remind me not to buy a used bike or car from you ...
