1000ml FLUID RESTRICTION - Central and Eastern Sydney PHN
1000ml FLUID RESTRICTION
Your Doctor has requested that you limit the amount of fluid that you consume.
The following information may help you achieve this.
A fluid is anything that is liquid at room temperature.
This includes soup, juice, ice-cream, jelly, custard, yoghurt, sauces and gravies. Alcohol is also
considered as fluid.
The plan below is a guide to your daily fluid intake. One cup = 250mls fluid.
Breakfast
100ml of milk for cereal & 100ml water, juice, tea or coffee
Morning Tea
200ml water, juice, tea or coffee
Lunch
100ml water, juice, tea or coffee
Afternoon Tea
200ml water, juice, tea or coffee
Dinner
100ml water, juice, tea or coffee
Supper
200ml water, juice, tea or coffee
Some hints to make this a little easier:
• Keeping to a low salt diet will make it easier to maintain your fluid restriction
• Spread your fluid intake over the day
• Sucking ice cubes, chewing gum, or using mouthwash to keep your mouth fresh and
moist
Please speak to your practice nurse if you would like further information about your fluid
restriction.
