    For real!

    I posted about mancations here on HT a few days ago: http://www.hawaiithreads.com/showthr...ght=mancations

    And in todays Advertiser I now see the same thing a bit changed up though! http://www.honoluluadvertiser.com/ap...609170337/1099

    Uh, Manoa? Your posting on Sep. 16th was of Matt Sedensky's story, distributed by the Associated Press and on Yahoo Sep. 11th. The Advertiser ran Sedensky's story Sep. 17; they got it from the A.P., not from your HT posting.

    Papers generally subscribe to a number of services like AP, or a program that allows them to "exchange" stories with others in a consortium, or from other papers owned by the same company. They get a LOT of material that they can use, and in the case of stories that aren't current "news" (like travel features, human-interest pieces, humor columns, etc.), they can hang on to them and use them whenever they wish (usually within a pre-determined window of time.) A lot of these kinds of pieces end up in Sunday papers, where there's more room for not-so-immediate stories. This story was in the Advertiser on Sunday the 17th (according to the website), so they apparently chose to save it until then.

    Wouldn't just about anyone realize that overloading on fluids is a bad idea for, say, a person with renal problems?

    And yes, tea, coffee, and any other beverage that contains H2O counts towards water intake. Even jell-o. Just ask anyone who has been on a fluid-restricted diet.

    Yes, people with kidney problems (like endstage renal disease and those on dialysis) do have to restrict their fluid intake to 32 oz. a day, which includes any fluid in the food you eat. That's not a whole lot of liquid when you consider that a can of soda is 12 oz. So that "8 glasses a day" definitely would not be advised in at least one case.

    I have found a lot of soda cans in my pantry "light". The seem to be empty or have very little liquid in them. They are unopened and I cannot detect any leaks in them. Some may have been in there for a year. I did not even realize sodas had "use by" dates. I opened and poured out the cans that still had liquid in them. It seems to be just colas. Coke, Diet Coke, and Safeway Select Colas.

    Anyone else get missing soda?

    Try taking the empty ones back to the store for an exchange.

    The recommended amount may vary depending on several factors---patient weight, cardiopulmonary status, comorbidities, their ability to still manufacture urine.

    Everything that turns into liquid at room temperature is considered when figuring total fluid intake (except oils, of course). Even ice cream.

    So yeah, it's real hard. Be nice to your kidneys!

    I never drink diet because the body can assimilate natural substances such as sugar (to a point) but it was never designed to handle chemicals such as Aspartame.

    I'll take sugar over chemicals anyday.

    Okay, the boss just called me and said he replaced all cans with new stuff (I don't know if he planned on it, or read this thread), so this topic can slowly die down.

    And I'm a bit surprised that this topic lasted this long.
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?
