Caroline - at one time my dr suggested I drink a gallon of water a day - I have well water which I cannot drink as the iron in it kills one of my meds... anyways I bought gallons of drinking water and monitored it that way. Drinking a gallon a day can be very challenging!

I am no longer on that regiment LOL so I am happy drinking my 9 8ozs a day.

I am allowed 64 oz of liquid a day, when i first started it was 56oz.
I have a lock and lock pitcher and i measure 64 oz of water into it each morning, and as i drink my coffee, tea or water or other liquids such as soup, jello etc. i measure the amount out of the pitcher and as the liquid , keeps going down i know where i am at. I know this might seem like to much trouble for some people. But my son suggested this to me, because at first i would forget how much i was drinking, and this is just easier for me.

Here is how I get my water in:

When I get up the first thing I grab is a bottle of water. I have to take my meds and cannot eat for an hour.
When I have my breakfast I have a cup of tea. (this is my 3rd serving of water)
When I have my morning snack - I grab my 2nd bottle of water and drink it into my workout, where I will have my 3rd bottle of water.
At lunch time I have another cup of tea. (my 8th serving of the day)
I typically have my next drink with dinner which is 8oz of cranberry juice.
One more cup of tea after dinner.
One more 8oz of water about 7ish and I am done for the day.

Good luck drinking your water.

FYI: any beverage can count towards your liquids for the day - water is just best.

I read today from a Michelle Bridges book (Australia Biggest loser fame) that you need to drink 30mls per kg. By working that out I need 16 glasses of water per day.
30 mls is 1 oz of water & a kg is 2.2 lbs

One of the most important aspects of maintaining kidney disease is to drink your water - at-least 8 cups a day. If you are on dialysis or have your liquids limited this challenge is NOT for you.

Track your intake here or share what you did drink today.
