Cause of Dehydration
Posted in 2015

Dehydration occurs when more water and fluids leave the body than enter it. Even low levels of dehydration can cause headaches, lethargy, and constipation.

The human body is roughly 75 percent water. Without this water, it cannot survive. Water is found inside cells, within blood vessels, and between cells.
A sophisticated water management system keeps our water levels balanced, and our thirst mechanism tells us when we need to increase fluid intake.
Although water is constantly lost throughout the day as we breathe, sweat, urinate, and defecate, we can replenish the water in our body by drinking fluids. The body can also move water around to areas where it is needed most if dehydration begins to occur.
Most occurrences of dehydration can be easily reversed by increasing fluid intake, but severe cases of dehydration require immediate medical attention.
As the condition progresses to moderate dehydration, symptoms include:
  • dry mouth
  • lethargy
  • weakness in muscles
  • headache
  • dizziness
Severe dehydration (loss of 10-15 percent of the body's water) may be characterized by extreme versions of the symptoms above as well as:
  • lack of sweating
  • sunken eyes
  • shriveled and dry skin
  • low blood pressure
  • increased heart rate
  • fever
  • delirium
  • unconsciousness

Don’t wait until you notice symptoms of dehydration to take action. Actively prevent dehydration by drinking plenty of water.
If you find the above symptoms immediately drink water...Water is your life protector.

My advise
1...  Low blood volume - less blood produces a drop in blood pressure and a reduction in the amount of oxygen reaching tissues; this can be life threatening.
2... Seizures - due to an imbalance of electrolytes.
3... Kidney problems - including kidney stonesurinary tract infections, and eventually kidney failure.
4....Heat injury - ranging from mild cramps to heat exhaustion or even heat stroke.
5... Drink sufficient water to protect yourself
