Spark's recommendations are for folks with no health restrictions. If you (or your relative, in this case) has a restriction recommended by your/ her doctor, then that would override whatever Spark says.

So as others have said, ask the doctor.

I agree with the other posts: ask the doctor.

If the patient is having issues with fluid retention for dialysis, then I personally would make my 64 ounces water and kale/spinach smoothies.

measurement for daily intake is generally broken down in ounces

Your relative NEEDS to be having this discussion with his/her Dr, and disregard what SP recommends. Fluids from foods such as soup also needs to be taken into account. A lot of people with serious renal issues may be instructed to consume only 2 cups/glasses of fluid in a day, and it needs to be measured, AND your relative also needs to ask what the Dr's 'cup measurement' is because some people think of a 150-200ml tea cup but others might think of a 300 or 350ml coffee mug as a cup. 64 oz is 8 US Standard cups.

I'd ask her Dr(have her ask).

If she's on 64 ozs total fluid intake then the water would be included with the total fluid total for the day.

If you are on a water restriction due to kidney problems - when water is listed on daily full breakdown what unit of measure is that in????

Helping a relative and this is a very important question. On a limited intake of 64 oz per day - trying to get a handle on the information sparks provides....................


Thanks for the help....................................Naki
