One serious effect is when bloodstream becomes too dilute (hypotonic) such that cells start taking in much water as well which causes swelling.


The body has mechanisms to remove excess water from the system which relies much on kidneys. However, when excess water becomes more than the kidney can remove in any given time, the rest will remain in the bloodstream, which causes many physiological effects.
