Why does water get into the body?
Posted On July 29, 2021
An international team of researchers has developed a new technology that detects the presence of water in the body from an outside source.
The device, which works by detecting chemical reactions in the urine of a person’s body, is currently being tested on a handful of patients, who are all women.
In the future, the researchers are hoping to test it on thousands of people.
Dr Michael Dutton, from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, said: “Our study demonstrates that there are water-based chemical reactions occurring in the human body that can trigger changes in the levels of certain hormone and neurotransmitter receptors.”
This technology may offer new treatments for some of the common conditions that affect women’s reproductive systems.
“The researchers found the test was sensitive enough to detect water in urine.
The test is a device that allows the user to measure the concentration of water inside the body.”
We can detect the presence and concentration of chemical reactions taking place in the kidneys, bladder and reproductive tract in the same way that we can detect and measure the presence or concentration of hydrogen sulfide in the air,” Dr Dutton said.”
These reactions are not visible in normal urine, so we can test for them using the urine.
“Dr Dutton and his colleagues developed the device after testing hundreds of people using a water test that was created by Dr Richard Lee.”
I have been doing this for 15 years, so I can say that we are very comfortable with the accuracy of our findings,” he said.
Dr Lee said: ”I think the main thing is that the water in people’s urine is so small that it’s very difficult to detect it by other methods.”
Dr Lee, from Australia’s Royal Perth Hospital, said the test is particularly useful for women who are pregnant, due to their larger uteruses, and for people who are breastfeeding or nursing.
Dr Dickson said: “”It’s really exciting to see a new test that can be used to help people.
“Women with a very large uterus and a very active lifestyle may be particularly sensitive to the presence, concentration and pH of a particular chemical.”
