A Review on Water Retention

  title={A Review on Water Retention},
  author={Srishti Upadhyay and Saumya Shrivastava and Deepak Kumar and Saurav Chaturvedi and Surya Pratap Singh and Mahaveer Prasad Khinchi},
This review attempts to provide some sense of our current knowledge of water including overall patterns of intake and some factors linked with intake, the complex mechanisms behind water homeostasis, the effects of variation in water intake on health and energy intake, weight, and human performance and functioning. Water represents a critical nutrient whose absence will be lethal within days. Water’s importance for prevention of nutrition-related noncommunicable diseases has emerged more…

Water-induced thermogenesis.
The thermogenic effect of water should be considered when estimating energy expenditure, particularly during weight loss programs, as well as in healthy, normal-weight subjects.
Influence of water drinking on resting energy expenditure in overweight children
An increase of up to 25% in REE is demonstrated following the drinking of 10 ml kg−1 of cold water in overweight children, lasting for over 40 min, reinforcing the concept of water-induced REE elevation shown in adults.
Water-induced thermogenesis reconsidered: the effects of osmolality and water temperature on energy expenditure after drinking.
Results cast doubt on water as a thermogenic agent for the management of obesity by finding that distilled water at room temperature did not increase energy expenditure.
Water Ingestion as Prophylaxis Against Syncope
Water drinking enhances tolerance of upright posture and may constitute a simple and effective prophylaxis against vasovagal reactions in healthy subjects, such as those associated with blood donation.
Osmosensitive mechanisms contribute to the water drinking-induced pressor response in humans
Gastric distention is probably not the crucial mechanisms for the water-induced pressor response, and the response may be mediated through osmosensitive afferent structures in the gastrointestinal tract, portal vein, and liver.
BRIEF REPORT Water Drinking Induces Thermogenesis through Osmosensitive Mechanisms
The objective of this study was to test whether water drinking elicits the same thermogenic response in obese as in normal-weight subjects and whether it is related to gastrointestinal distention, hypoosmotic stimulation, or both.
Water Drinking Acutely Improves Orthostatic Tolerance in Healthy Subjects
Water drinking elicits an acute hemodynamic response and changes in cerebrovascular regulation in healthy subjects associated with a marked improvement in orthostatic tolerance.
Water drinking in the management of orthostatic intolerance due to orthostatic hypotension, vasovagal syncope and the postural tachycardia syndrome
This review will concentrate on the water pressor response in normal subjects and different groups of patients with autonomic diseases who have orthostatic intolerance, on the mechanisms that could be involved, and on whether thisPressor response may be used in the management of Orthostatic hypotension, vasovagal syncope and the postural tachycardia syndrome.
Reproducibility, power and validity of visual analogue scales in assessment of appetite sensations in single test meal studies
VAS scores are reliable for appetite research and do not seem to be influenced by prior diet standardization, however, consideration should be given to the specific parameters being measured, their sensitivity and study power.
