Can I Drink Too Much Water?

Yes, you can drink too much water, but you probably will not, unless you gulp down a gallon or two all at once. Drinking too much water too quickly leads to a condition called hyponatremia or "water intoxication". When that happens, the sodium levels in your blood drop very fast and will make you sick. This is a medical emergency and can be fatal.

It is easy to avoid hyponatremia by drinking a glass or two at a time and spread your water intake throughout the whole day.
