Water--- surely I can't be drinking too much.
I have a bit of a dilemma. I am on probation, and I keep getting dilluted U.A.'s. There for a while, I had a dilluted U.A. every month. My probation officer said they ran a test, and I was drinking enough water to kill myself. She also told me to stop drinking water. I am not interested in the legal issues of this, but it has become a health concern.
Last month I handed in another dilluted U.A. They are threatening to put me in jail over it. Anyways, at one point in time, I was trying to clean my system out, but I did not think I was drinking enough water to do damage. At that time, I was working in a hot warehouse, so I drank water to stay hydrated. I cut back on my water intake when they threatened to violate my probation. But last month, when i took the test, I had not been drinking excessive water. In fact, I probably was not drinking enough.
Now I am trying to cut out all cokes, tea, and other crap that is not good for you. I want to drink water, cranberry juice, and gatorade. I reported on Tuesday, and found out about the dilluted U.A., and now it looks like I will not be able to cut them out. I have to be able to drink something, and I had assumed water would be ok.
I drink no more than 5 12 oz. glasses a day. Isn't the recommended amount 8 glasses? Does anyone know what could be causing this? Is this something I need to see a doctor about? I had already planned on going to see one, because they said if I can not give them a written medical explanation from a doctor, I will go to jail.
I do not take any medications, or supplements BTW. My main question is, could there be something wrong with my body? Does anyone have any idea why this would be happening?
