    If i drink 10 500ml drinks a day and only pee once a day could that mean kidney failure

    I am soon to go on dialysis and I am concerned about fluid
    intake. I now have a large intake of fluids. I feel thirsty all the time as I am diabetic and also take lithium. any advice.

    It may–very unusual to consume that much fluid without urinating more than once a day. Your doctor or health care team can evaluate you to see if there is a problem.
