psychogenic polydipsia and salt?

Postby toad » Sun Sep 25, 2022 9:58 pm

"Mental illness: Some people have an uncontrollable urge to drink water, so they drink it all day even though they don't need to. This is called psychogenic polydipsia. Mental illnesses that can cause polydipsia include: Schizophrenia and other personality disorders."

Would like to be SOS free, but have psychogenic polydipsia and excessively drink water and seltzers, to the point I can get through 4-5 gallon jug in a day.

Should I be supplementing with salt, from flushing out electrolytes by drinking to much water, and are there other supplements I should look into taking because I am probably flushing a lot of minerals/nutrients out?
