So [Hippocrates] is saying that water is nourishing not only to the feverish, but also to insomniacs.
Greek Original:
*(/udwr boro\n kai\ a)grupni/h| boro/n: le/gei ou)=n, o(/ti to\ u(/dwr ou)k e)n toi=s pure/ttousi mo/non e)sti\ tro/fimon, a)lla\ ka)\n toi=s a)grupnou=sin.
For the headword phrase -- Hippocrates, De morbis popularibus 6.4.18 -- see already at beta 397; as copied here, however, it is garbled (by turning nominative 'insomnia' into dative).
The Suda's comment has no parallel elsewhere.
