  • Too Much Fluids....

    I work a full 6 day a week schedule + my 3 days per week Dialysis Treatment. Lately my fluid levels have been elevated; and I can't figure out where it's coming from. But I do have a side question about food and fluids....!

    I eat [2] packets of Cream of Wheat or [2] Packets of instant Oatmeal (flavored) every morning. I have to add 1 1/3 cups of water to this to create the consistancy and put in the microwave. I don't add sugar; but add [1] tablespoon of butter / margarine.

    My question is the 1 1/3 cups of water; it turns to a solid; but is it still count against my fluid intact for the day????
