I had a Health Class that was taught by a Personal Trainer a few years ago. You're absolutely right, from what she told me, many people walk around with improper amounts of fluids inside their body. And it was a pretty good percentage for athletes. I wish I could remember the exact percentages, but it's college and let's be honest, I wasn't paying THAT much attention.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle collapsed at practice Friday and was taken off the court on a stretcher and to a hospitalTags: NBA, Dallas Mavericks

Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said "everything's fine" after he collapsed at practice and was taken off the court on a stretcher and to the hospital earlier in the day.

Mavericks president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said Carlisle was "lightheaded and fainted" on the court Friday at American Airlines Center. Carlisle was released from the hospital later Friday afternoon.

"I got up early, had breakfast, took my daughter to school, came in, worked out, had a couple of Balance bars, a couple Mountain Dews, had a staff meeting and got ready for practice," Carlisle told Galloway & Company on ESPN 103.3 FM in Dallas. "I got to feeling a little lightheaded, fainted and, before I knew it, they were pulling me out of there on a stretcher.


"Everything's fine. I'm looking foward to taking a day or two here to spend a little time with my daughter. I'll be back at it on Monday."

Carlisle said he will not join the Mavericks for Saturday's outdoor exhibition game against Phoenix in Indian Wells, Calif. Nelson said Dwane Casey will coach the team.

"The ballboys forgot to do the laundry," Nelson joked to Galloway & Company. "... He got lightheaded and fainted, and who hasn't done that? You take every precaution when it does happen, and so we wanted to make sure everything was perfect. And it is."

The 50-year-old coach was conscious and responding to questions as he was carried by stretcher to an ambulance and taken to a nearby hospital. Team personnel were with him.

"We were going through warm-ups. Nothing out of the ordinary," Nelson said. "It happens. Just when it does happen, it catches you off guard and you have to take every
precaution ...

"I was there the night that Hank [Gathers] went down. And when stuff like that happens, you take fainting a whole lot differently. It's something you have to take seriously. We did, and everything has checked out. So we just turn the page and move on from here."

Gathers was a standout basketball player at Loyola Marymount who collapsed on the court in 1990 and died due to a heart disorder.

Assistant coach Terry Stotts was on the court when Carlisle fell.

"He was pale, but he was alert and talking to Casey [Smith, the Mavericks' athletic trainer]," Stotts told the Dallas Morning News. "We're all concerned about him and hopefully everything is OK and it's just a one-time thing."


"I heard the fall," point guard Jason Kidd said, according to the newspaper. "We don't know what the situation is. Basketball is our job, but life comes before our job or anything else. Your well-being is the most important thing. That's our coach and our family member. We got to make sure he's all right and we'll go from there."

Carlisle, who coached the Mavericks to an 88-83 exhibition victory over the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night, is starting his third season as coach of the Mavericks after stints with the Pacers and Pistons. He was named NBA coach of the year in his first season on the bench, guiding Detroit to a 50-32 record in 2001-02. He also played five years in the league, with Boston, New York and New Jersey.

It is a kind of urban myth that a majority of the population walks around dehydrated all the time. There's no scientific evidence to support it, only old health adages. You only need to replace the amount of water your body excretes daily (urine, breath, pores, etc.), and it's really not that hard to do. After the water most Americans get from their food, whatever other water they get from the incidental coffees, sodas, milk/OJ's, or gatorades through the day is enough. Most Americans are well-hydrated.

Ask a doctor who has actually looked into this stuff, or a nephrologist. We have abundant access to both foods and fluids--for so many of us to have a fluid imbalance would be highly unusual.

I'm not a doctor, but I have researched this issue as it became important issues as my mom and now my dad has had serious health issues.

I think sure you are partially correct. you do get a lot of water from food (depending on what food you eat)

But lets examine what a lot of people do everyday. They wake up and have coffee all morning, then maybe have soda for lunch and all afternoon and then maybe beer or wine with dinner and then another drink after dinner. People who do that are severally dehydrated. Caffeine itself make you dehydrated, same with alcohol. People who do this need to drink a ton of water

But lets say you have a heathy breakfast with maybe some juice, and don't have caffeine all day and you eat a decent amount of fruits ad vegatables. Then sure for those people you don't need that much water to stay hydrated.

Caffeine does not dehydrate you. Many claim it to be a diuretic, but there's little evidence for that. Most reports find that it doesn't increase water loss unless you're taking in a huge amount of it very quickly. (I haven't looked into alcohol as much--since coffee is my main vice--but this IOM/NAS study I'm looking at here suggests that the overall diuretic effect of alcohol on a person's hydration is not significant. ) But those coffees and sodas are still mostly water. They're getting plenty of water. Probably not the healthiest overall choice of beverage to be downing each and every day, but in terms of hydration the coffee- and soda-slammers are fine.

http://www.iom.edu/Reports/2004/Dietary-Reference-Intakes-Water-Potassium-Sodium-Chloride-and-Sulfate.aspx

The vast majority of healthy people adequately meet their daily hydration needs by letting thirst be their guide. The report did not specify exact requirements for water, but set general recommendations for women at approximately 2.7 liters (91 ounces) of total water -- from all beverages and foods -- each day, and men an average of approximately 3.7 liters (125 ounces daily) of total water. The panel did not set an upper level for water.From pages 133-134 of that study:


Caffeine is one of three methylxanthines found in foods; it is naturally present in coffee, teas, and chocolate, is added to colas and other beverages (IOM, 2001a), and is a component of many medications (Passmore et al., 1987). It is estimated that 20 to 30 percent of Americans consume more than 600 mg of caffeine daily (Neuhauser-Berthold et al., 1997). The other two methylxanthines, theobromine (found in chocolate) and theophylline (found in tea), demonstrate some, but not all, of the pharmacological effects of caffeine (Dorfman and Jarvick, 1970).

It has long been thought that consumption of caffeinated beverages, because of the diuretic effect of caffeine on reabsorption of water in the kidney, can lead to a total body water deficit. However, available data are inconsistent. As early as 1928 it was reported that caffeine-containing beverages did not significantly increase 24-hour urinary output (Eddy and Downs, 1928). Caffeine-containing beverages did not increase 24-hour urine volume in healthy, free-living men when compared with other types of beverages (e.g., water, energy-containing beverages, or theobromine-containing beverages) (Dorfman and Jarvik, 1970; Grandjean et al., 2000).

Conversely, in a study in which 12 individuals who normally consumed caffeinated beverages were required to abstain from all methylxanthine-containing foods and drugs for 5 days and who were then were given 642 mg of caffeine in the form of coffee, 24-hour urine output increased by 0.75 0.53 L, a 41 percent increase (Neuhauser-Berthold et al., 1997). Given that the study design did not evaluate habitual intake, it is difficult to determine the extent to which this large amount of caffeine would impact total water needs on a chronic basis.

In an earlier study, the effect of caffeine intake on urinary output was evaluated in eight men who were asked to consume four cups of coffee or six cups of tea/day (providing approximately 240 mg of caffeine/day) for 5 days prior to data collection and then to abstain from caffeine 24 hours prior to data collection (Passmore et al., 1987). The subjects were then given various doses of caffeine (45, 90, 180, or 360 mg) on the study day. Cumulative urine volume 3 hours after consuming the test dose was increased significantly only at the 360-mg dose of caffeine. This is equivalent to four cups of regular brewed coffee (USDA/ARS, 2002).
Caffeine can induce hemodynamic effects not directly related to fluid balance. The acute pressor effects (e.g., vasoconstriction, palpitations) of caffeine consumption are well documented; however, in a review of the relevant literature, there was no clear epidemiologic evidence that habitual caffeine consumption leads to hypertension (Nurminen et al., 1999).

In aggregate, available data suggest that higher doses of caffeine (above 180 mg/day) have been shown to increase urinary output, perhaps transiently, and that this diuretic effect occurs within a short time period (Passmore et al., 1987). Whether or not caffeine ingestion at high amounts leads to a total body water deficit is uncertain (IOM, 2001a), although some have tried to develop a predictive model of water needs based on the limited data available (Stookey, 1999). Hence, unless additional evidence becomes available indicating cumulative total water deficits in individuals with habitual intakes of significant amounts of caffeine, caffeinated beverages appear to contribute to the daily [I]total water intake similar to that contributed by noncaffeinated beverages.

I was dehydrated for about a month a few years ago. I was working outside during the summer months and didn't realize I wasn't hydrating properly. I was drinking water, but not enough. I started getting really sick, light headed, had throat and swallowing problems, felt tired all the time. Started drinking a big gatorade after work every day and it cleared up within a day. I was just glad I didn't have cancer like I thought I did. Stupid WebMD...

Peter Vecsey

Spoke to Rick Carlisle yesterday afternoon, the day after the Mavericks head coach got light-headed and collapsed into a dead feint at practice. Following a battery of hospital tests, which were negative, he was back on site an hour later.

Still, just to be safe and supposedly to get some rest, Carlisle didn't accompany the team to Palm Springs, Calif., for last night's outdoor exhibition against the Suns. Assistant Dwane Casey took over with Rick scheduled to return for tomorrow night's home game against the Cavaliers.

I thought maybe Carlisle had a bad reaction to Mark Cuban telling him he'd just traded for Ron Artest.

"Nice try," Carlisle said. "But I love Ron.

"This is what happened: I usually take my daughter to school around 7:45 and then I go for a workout. Afterward I usually eat a Balance Bar and drink a Mountain Dew. [On Friday] I had three and three."

Hopefully his daughter (and players) has a healthier morning intake than that.


"Had I drank some water this probably wouldn't have happened," Carlisle conceded before heading to the gym for a workout that includes drinking lots of water.

Soup is right. The old adage of 8 glasses of water per day has never been proven in any study, it just become an old wives tale passed around. A few years ago a doctor whose name I don't recall was looking into this and found no studies that attempted to support it at all. Only a misunderstanding of the overall required water intake which 100% includes foods and caffeinated drinks making the supplement of 8 additional glasses way beyond a normal amount.

edit: found it at Scientific American
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=eight-glasses-water-per-day

It includes this excerpt (more than one doctor is quoted in the article)

Barbara Rolls (http://nutrition.psu.edu/faculty/profiles.cfm?facultyid=21), professor of nutrition sciences at the Pennsylvania State University, disagrees. Her studies, she says, "found no evidence that people are chronically dehydrated."If you've stopped urinating or if your urine is getting extremely dark, then that's a sign you are getting dehydrated. Conversely you really shouldn't be drinking too much water to the point that you're urine is completely clear.

Also it is very possible to OVERHYDRATE your body, resulting in brain damage or coma.

Usually you must have a kidney condition or other issue, but a healthy adult can get to that point by drinking 2 gallons of water in a single day. And it's actually easier if you exercise a lot and replace the sweat with straight water.

http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/overhydration

Since the brain is the organ most susceptible to overhydration, a change in behavior is usually the first symptom of water intoxication. The patient may become confused, drowsy, or inattentive. Shouting and delirium (http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Delirium) are common. Other symptoms of overhydration may include blurred vision, muscle cramps and twitching, paralysis (http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Paralysis) on one side of the body, poor coordination, nausea and vomiting, rapid breathing, sudden weight gain, and weaknessA woman running the 2002 Boston marathon died of overhydration which is mentioned in this article original printed in UltraRunning magazine
http://www.succeedscaps.com/overhydration.html

And discussed here as well
http://www.remembercynthia.com/Hyponatremia_BostonGlobe.htm


And from Wiki...

Medical personnel at marathon events are trained to suspect water intoxication immediately when runners collapse or show signs of confusion

I was always told clear urine is the goal.

However, the oint is still valid. Being over hydrated is bad.

That said, that is harder to reach then you might think.

It is still bad if you ever get to think point. I ran with track with a young man who ended up going professional in track, and I remember how shocked all us us were when someone (a young college guy I think) died from over-hydration in one of the marathons.

By Del Quentin Wilber and David Brown


At some point, McBride told an instructor that he had consumed perhaps as much as three gallons of water contained in a backpack he was carrying. Bicyclists often drink water through a tube connected to a bladder contained in such packs.

Officers said that McBride seemed to be recovering as he sat out the exercise. When another officer hurt his knee, police summoned an ambulance. The paramedics noticed that McBride was convulsing and continuing to vomit. They took him to Washington Hospital Center, where he died about 1:30 p.m. yesterday.

Many experts believe hyponatremia has become more common in recent years. More people are engaging in endurance events, such as marathons, that last many hours and during which participants are urged to drink water.

The entire article is a good read, but that part touches on what has been mentioned in this thread so far.

To anyone that's suffered a heat stroke before...that's something scary as ****. You never do any kind of sports activity after that without lots of water onhand.

I suspect most people that over-hydrate generally have seen or experienced what severe dehydration can do, and mistake the warning signs of consuming too much water with the signs of not consuming enough...

I probably drink about a gallon of water a day between water and juices and I haven't died yet. j/k - not counting the maybe 1 - 12 once soda I drink a day.

OK, the claim was not that a gallon of water a day is particularly unhealthy. You claimed that 60% of people are walking around dehydrated, and that caffeine products will cause dehydration. Both of these claims are demonstrably false; if you stand by either then you're being stubbornly ignorant.

On the urine thing - I think totally clear urine just means that you've had more water than necessary, and so your body's flushing it out of your system. More than likely you're not anywhere near overhydrating (especially if you are, you know, peeing at the moment), although I do think having too much water in your system can impair kidney function by a very slight %. (Nothing I'd worry about though.)
