Yes, I heard 3 litres for adults but that is too much for me.
I drink 1 litre of St. Mark's and supplement with more fluid at different times but I do not think I get as much as 3 litres.
needing sugar - the doc should be a bit more specific. It is only glucose that we need for absorption. My St. Mark's uses 6 level teaspoons of glucose powder, 1 level teaspoon salt (I use sea salt without additives), and a heaped half teaspoon sodium bicarbonate in a litre of water.
The recipe only calls for glucose, not sugar, which is mostly fructose. Latest evidence is that fructose is the stuff we should avoid except in the form of whole foods/fruit (not juice).
Food labels might use different names for it but it's still fructose.
Yes, I think peanut butter also does the job. There are plenty other things can be used too. I was wondering about
ispaghula husk also. I prefer natural stuff rather than chemicals if possible.
My normal BP range is usually around 115-125. My home nurse prefers to keep things above 100. In my doc's office today it was 117 but my pulse was 113. He told me I need to be drinking 3 liters of liquids a day...gatorade, pedialyte, etc. I got some lomotil to help slow my output down a little bit. I did have some peanut butter crackers while I was out today and that came out much thicker in my bag. My doc did ask me why I was using the lower sugar gatorade, he said the sugar helps absorb the electrolytes into the bloodstream so now I have a fridge full of low sugar and the regular gatorade
