Can Drinking Water Affect My Blood pressure?

By Peter Hibberd, M.D.   |   Wednesday, 24 Jul 2013 09:47 AM

Question: I’ve heard drinking a lot of water can lower my blood pressure?

Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
 
Actually, fluid loading will increase your blood pressure. Extreme excesses of water intake can also cause electrolyte abnormalities.
 
Drinking about eight eight-ounce glasses of water daily — not more or less — is usually the best guideline for most of us. Some people are sodium sensitive and will note improved blood pressure readings on reduced sodium diets.
