Should I worry about overhydration?

Overhydration

Don't let fear of overhydration keep you from developing water health habits. Normally healthy people rarely drink enough water to become overhydrated. If you suffer from kidney problems you're at a greater risk. You can keep yourself safe by drinking no more than 2 quarts of water per day.

Athletes who train for endurance events such as marathons can avoid overhydration by drinking water at multiple points throughout their event. Waiting until the last part of the race to drink a large quantity of water can lead to overhydration.
