Question ID: 753384
I want to mention that every pure liquid when mixed with lot of water 
becomes "diluted" and please note that dilute means "reduce  strengh  
by addition of water or make less forcible" so therefore I want to
know that if a person  drinks lot of water daily and that person also
eats those substances daily containing  lot of sugar for example 
Chocolates, Cakes,Pepsi Cola or Coca Cola drinks  ETC. and because
every pure liquid when mixed with lot of water becomes "diluted or
reduces its strengh" so therefore I want to know that in this case
Pancreas  organ which is
responsible for injecting Insulin into the body of person so as to
diffuse or finish the excess of Sugar in the body of person  would
have to inject either "very small  or small or large amount of
Insulin" into the body of person so as to diffuse or finish the excess
of Sugar into the body of person ??  Please provide accurate answer of
my above statement and thanks and best regards from Shoaib for above
There is no answer at this time.

I'm not sure that I totally understand you question.  What you say
about dilution is true in general, but consider:

1) The human body is very good at separating molecules it wants
(sugar, insulin) from solution, and
2) There is a limit to how much dilution you can accomplish by drinking water.

So my guess is that any reasonable amount of water that you might
drink would have  no significant effect on the amount of insulin
released by the pancreas.

fstoken is likely correct except a glass of water imediately after the
sugar may reduce the amount of insulin produced by some people. If you
just drank 20 onces of soda, you may harm your body by adding 8 onces
of water. A total daily excess of liquids is also harmful to some
people. I suggest you reduce the per half hour consumption of anything
you suspect is of doubtful prudence. Ten ounces of liquid per half
hour is good for most people, unless your total exceeds 100 ounces
daily. There are people who have less tolerance for liquids, so cut
back to perhaps 60 ounces per day if you seem to be getting symptoms
from too much liquid. More than half of your liquid consumption should
be water without anything added.   Neil
Diluting non sugar foods ect with water is likely less helpful, but a
few onces of water with other foods is usually helpful.   Neil

Whatever the amount of water you drink though it dilutes the sugar but
the amount of sugar remains constant.  That is if you intake 500 gms
sugar than you drink 1 or 4 litres water the sugar remains constant at
500 gms!  Also pancreas reduces amount of sugar in blood by increasing
its entry into the cells using insulin.

Panther06 commenter in response to your above comment I agree that
amount of Sugar for example of 500 grams taken 'everyday' would remain
constant in excess of Water in the body of person( if that person
drinks lot of Water for example 15 or 20 or 25 Glasses of Water
'everyday') but please note that "strengh of 500 grams of Sugar would
be "reduced" or its strengh would become less forcible" because liquid
Sugar has been "diluted" in excess of Water taken everyday and please
note that dilute means 'reduce strengh by addition of Water or make
less forcible' so therefore Panceas organ would have to inject "either
very small or small amount" of Insulin into the body of person so as
to finish excess of Sugar in the body of person and if possble for you
then please provide response or answer of my above statement and
thanks and best regards from Shoaib for that help.

If you drink one glass of water, you excrete one glass of water
immediately as urine. But you excrete sugar only when the
concentration of sugar in the blood exceeds 180 mg/dL. So you can not
dilute sugar in your blood. If you consume 100 gm of sugar, you will
have hyperglycemia for a pretty long time. But if you consume 10 gm of
sugar 10 times in a day in a spaced manner, then there will be no
hyperglycemia because sugar level in your blood never goes high beyond
a particular point and in a particular period. Even if there is
hyperglycemia, the impact of the same on the human body is negligible.
Hence all diabetic patients are being advised to consume less quantity
of food for the maximum number of times.
