water consumption
Gastroenterologist Rustem Sadykov: for some health problems, water on an empty stomach should be consumed with great caution.

Drinking water on an empty stomach is considered a healthy habit. You can often hear that in the morning after waking up you should drink up to two glasses of warm liquid to dilute the blood that thickens at night and normalize the functions of the bile ducts and stomach. But doctor Sadykov stated that for some people such a habit can only be harmful.

Sadykov explained when water on an empty stomach may be undesirable to the Doctor Peter portal:

“For problems with the kidneys and gall bladder , and also with high blood pressure, you should not drink large amounts of water on an empty stomach.”
The specialist advised that in case of these disorders, drink water on an empty stomach only after consultation with a medical professional.

He also drew attention to the fact that drinking water should be done correctly – at this moment you do not need to stand or walk, just sit. Drinking water while standing can upset the balance of fluids, which can lead to the development of arthritis.
