Patient : Hi. I am 58 years old, slightly obese and has diabetes. I am on pills for diabetes. Lately the doctor has advised that because I have high sodium in my body, I have been advised not to drink more than half a cup of water each meal. Before I sought a second doctor's opinion, I would like to know what do you think of the half cup water rule. I find it hard to have only one and half cup water and am desperate and angry
