As the nation is currently on high alert due to the increasing cases of influenza A and H1N1 that seem to be rising daily, many would think that drinking more water and staying hydrated would help combat these deadly viruses. But it seems like drinking too much water can do more harm than good.

In a tweet posted by Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia Putrajaya (KKM), the Ministry of Health advised Malaysians against drinking too much water as this could put you at risk of being diagnosed with Hyponatremia (water intoxification).

For those of you who don’t know, Hyponatremia occurs when there’s a dangerously low level of sodium in the blood due to excess fluid in the body. According to MedicineNet, the symptoms of low blood sodium include:

  • Mental changes
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomitting
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Seizures

Some cases of Hyponatremia may even result in the individual ending up in a coma, possibly leading to death.

The Ministry of Health went on to say that the “recommended amount of water that one should drink a day is 6-8 glasses.” Nonetheless, it is also advised to take into consideration other factors that could possibly contribute to your daily water intake such as “physical activity, weather, and the current health of each individual.”

But that’s still kind of vague. After all, how can one really tell if the amount of water they’re drinking is too much? Well, since the tweet went viral with over 6,300 retweets, many netizens have responded with their own ways of monitoring their hydration levels to ensure they don’t go overboard.

One netizen suggested monitoring your water consumption based off how clear your urine is. Another Twitter user pointed out that you could also use your body weight as an accurate measure.
