What is Dehydration?

 Have you ever felt dizzy or forceless during a warm summer day? 

These are the most frequent symptoms during the heatwaves. 

Most likely, the cause was dehydration, so let’s try to understand the most common causes and how this condition can be solved. 

 

Let’s start with a definition of hydration, which refers to a natural process of keeping the liquid level in your body stable. Appropriate hydration is the key to your health and well-being. That’s why when the body loses more fluids than it takes in, it leads to insufficient water, which maintains regular body temperature. 

What causes dehydration:

  • Not drinking enough water or fluids.

 

  • Excessive sweating: during workouts, extreme physical effort, or exposure to high temperatures.

 

  • Sickness: vomiting or diarrhoea may cause a crucial liquid loss.

 

  • Increasing urination: illnesses like diabetes or diuretic medications can cause frequent urination.

Symptoms of dehydration:

  • Thirst
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Dark coloured Urine
  • Dry mouth and throat
  • Dry skin
  • Rapid heartbeat and breathing
  • Sunken eyes
  • Lack of energy
  • Excessive sweating

Preventing Dehydration requires staying sufficiently hydrated, especially during summer or while training. In these cases, more than water is needed. So, if you are experiencing these symptoms, our specialists highly recommend a high-quality oral rehydration therapy like ForteHydra.

 

How to stay hydrated:

  • Listen to your body. (pay attention to thirst).

 

  • Drink fluids before and after physical activity.

 

  • Avoid excessive alcohol and caffeine.

 

  • Eat hydrating foods (watermelon, berries, cucumbers...).

 

  • Set reminders so you don’t forget to drink water or eat.

What are Electrolytes?

Dehydration is closely related to a loss of electrolytes crucial for maintaining proper body hydration. It can cause an imbalance in the body’s electrolyte levels.

Electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, chloride, bicarbonate, citrates)

are essential minerals that carry an electric charge, which helps the body in fluid regulation. A balanced diet is the best way to satisfy your electrolyte needs.

Electrolytes are vital for:

  • Energy production
 
  • Muscle function
 
  • Bone health
 
  • Nerve transmission
 
  • Blood pressure
 
  • Body fluid balance

How to replace the loss of electrolytes:

  • Follow a diet high in vegetables and fruits.
  • Oral rehydration drinks.
  • Drinking fluids rich in electrolytes, such as natural coconut water and fresh fruit juices.
  • Ensure your meals are well seasoned, but don’t overdo the salt
  • Sports drinks, but be careful because of the high sugar levels; try not to use these if you are not being active

If you experience multiple dehydration and electrolyte imbalance events, you should speak to your doctor to identify the cause.
