Hello, I just wonder how much to drink. I was watching myself and I drink really a lot but it's just because I feel thirsty quite often even though I have no diabetes or so. I think that over drinking is not good for kidneys because it makes them quite busy all the time. On the other hand not drinking enough is not good as well.
I don't drink plain water that much, only when there's hot. Recently I drink chinese medicine for qi stagnation and deficiency three times a day, than I prefer different kinds of tea such as green tea, cinnamon tea and ginger tea when I feel cold, than warm water with lemon or cider vinegar, especially in the morning. I don't drink any milk since I don't like it but sometimes I can't resist and drink a small cup of coffee or cocoa. Occasionally I drink 2dcl of red wine.
I wonder if I should drink always when I feel thirsty? Sometimes I think I have "a false thirst" because sometimes I feel having a dry mouth even after drinking. It's kind of weird.
