Women loses sight after drinking too much water!

She drank 7 litres of water a day to "detoxify and reduce her blood pressure". Thinking that the more water she drank, the better it would be, she continued the habit and this went on for 3 months.

But last month, this 26-year-old Taiwanese woman suddenly fainted at home. When she regained consciousness a few days later, she was blind, reported Apple Daily Taiwan. Doctors had said that the woman's condition is known as "chronic water intoxication".

The amount of water she drank daily is more than 3 times the recommended daily consumption for sedentary* adults. Too much water consumed causes hyponatremia, a condition where there is insufficient sodium in the blood.

As a result, the excess water had to be absorbed by her body cells. Her brain cells swelled after taking in the water, which led to increased pressure in her brain. Dr. Jiang who treated her said that the pressure caused bleeding in her occipital lobe. It is the visual processing centre of the brain which contains most of the visual cotex.

Shin Min Daily News quoted a doctor saying that drinking too much water can be fatal. According to doctors, the symptoms of water intoxication include headache, fatigue, nausea, vomitting, frequent urination and mental disorientation!

WOW! Am i baffled to know about this, because I love to drink water! So you guys out there, cut down on your water consumption if you are a "hydrophilic" just like me! Consume moderately! In this case "you are what you drink"!
