I am 72. I was a high sugar diabetic. A month back, I have been started on a medicines package of
FORMALIN TABLET, delayed release aspirin tablet, lipidone tablet and fish oil capsule omega-3 and B12 tablet. Now my
blood sugar ranges witin normal permissible levels, pre-food, and 2 hours after food. Hitherto,
I was taking morning 7 AM breakfast, 12 Noon lunch and 9 pm dinner (vegetarian). I used to take
1 and half liters of water at 3 pm. Now, some health specialist' 5 small meals a day prescription

I want to experiment on myself. But, the prescription was silent about the time when I should
take my daily dose of 1 and half litre intake of water. Hemce, I seek your valued counselling.

Hi gusarma,

Your question is: when is the best time to take 1.5 liters (or about 50 ounces) of water each day, based on a very specific "prescription" from a health specialist?

I am not sure which health specialist you are referring to, but I can tell you that it is recommended to consume enough water to where we do not feel thirsty (thirst is a sign of dehydration), either through fruits and vegetables and/or from fluids. Some experts suggest 8 glasses of water daily (8 ounces, or 0.2 liters), or the equivalent of 64 ounces (1.8 liters) over the course of the day.

If you are physically active, it is best to just drink small sips of water throughout the entire day, so that your stomach does not feel "water-logged". Drinking small amounts of water throughout the day will help you digest food better, keep you hydrated, help you feel full.

Does this answer your question?
