    Hi everyone,

    I love water so I drink above requirements.  I have a  30oz Yeti cup filled with ice and water I carry around.  When I get tired of it, I switch to Gatorade or now I’m drinking Pedialyte for adults.  It’s helps a lot when I get dehydrated.

    i now that water is very important to SCD patients i have no idea how much should i drink daily or must be, but usually i’m drinking my enough amount of water almost 1.5 to 2 liters per day, i don’t know if this is enough or should i drink more ????!??!!

    I try to drink 2-3 litres a day.

    The aim is to avoid dehydration. When we are dehydrated our blood becomes thicker and it doesn’t move as easily around the body and ultimately this can lead to a crisis.

    So the more water we drink = better blood flow

    Water also helps to combat jaundice!

    Not nearly enough.   My average intake is 54 oz.

      Drinking water does feel like a chore at times so I understand why your intake may be lower than you wish @healed56. Is there anything that you think you could do (or anyone who is also in your position) to help encourage a higher water intake?
