How Much Water Should I Drink Per Day? And How Quick Should I Drink Water?

After suffering pancreatitis or any pancreas illness it is important to always stay hydrated with the correct liquids. Stay away from anything with caffeine in it unless you feel as if it doesn't effect your condition. I stay with bottled water all day after my morning coffee. It is important to drink a good amount of water per day and it is important to take your time when you drink it.

It is important to understand that the maximum water kidneys can process is 1 liter per hour, otherwise it becomes toxic on your body and the term is called 'water intoxication' which can prove fatal. So make sure you consume less than 1 liter of water per hour. During the midday hours i consume around 300 ml an hour. I usually consume between 3-4 liters a day. During the winter months i consume closer to 3 liters a day and during summer months i consume 4 liters a day. If i am performing fitness and other work outs i try to increase my water intake slightly to ensure i am hydrated.

Water helps the pancreas and other major organs filter bad toxins easily throughout the body. Considering a majority of human body mass is made up of water, the importance of consuming adequate amounts of water is extremely important on your health.
