Diabetes: Water
 
 
Water

Whether or not you have diabetes, water is an integral part of your body and its importance to your health cannot be underestimated.  In your body, water is a transporter for nutrients, acts as a solvent for minerals, amino acids and some sugars, and helps to cleanse your tissues and blood of waste. Additionally, water participates in chemical reactions, serves as a shock absorber inside your eyes, spinal cord and joints, and helps maintain your body temperature.

When you have high blood pressure or bad cholesterol, drinking water can play an important role because:

  • Water improves blood flow and keeps your blood clean, allowing your blood to move easier through arteries
  • Some blood pressure medicines, especially diuretics, can cause dehydration, and your body needs water to hydrate and maintain balance
