Dehydration occurs when your body doesn’t have as much water as it needs to function properly. It can be caused by something as simple as forgetting to drink enough. That might explain why experts estimate up to 75 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated. Fortunately, you can help combat it by adding intravenous therapy to your wellness routine.
Common Signs of Dehydration
Thirst isn’t the only way your body can tell you it needs more water. In fact, it isn’t even that reliable. Many people only feel thirsty once they’re already dehydrated. Remember to pay attention to the other signs of mild or moderate dehydration, such as:
- Dry mouth
- Dark yellow urine
- Urinating infrequently
- Dry skin
- Muscle cramps
Symptoms such as a rapid heartbeat or breathing, sunken eyes, extreme lack of energy, confusion, irritability, and fainting indicate severe dehydration. If you are experiencing any of these, you should see a doctor. Untreated dehydration can lead to serious complications.
Simple Ways To Rehydrate
Drinking water is the most obvious way to rehydrate and stay hydrated. Throughout the day, you can also reach for hydrating snacks such as berries, melons, lettuce, carrots, and spinach. Oral hydration solutions, which contain water, electrolytes, and sugar, are worth considering too.
Of course, you can also incorporate IV therapy appointments into your wellness routine to combat dehydration effectively. We offer a specially-formulated fluid blend called Quench.
IV therapy is known for its rapid delivery of vitamins and nutrients. It provides better absorption than food or supplements, and we can customize the blends to meet your specific needs.
Be sure to drink plenty of water leading up to your treatment. We also suggest eating a snack to stabilize your blood sugar and keep you from feeling lightheaded during your IV therapy visit.
