It is important for you to address this situation properly, because there are times when it may be a very serious issue that could lead to additional complications. Fortunately, there are ways that you can hydrate yourself properly and it may help you to overcome the underlying issues which can lead to this problem as well.

There are a number of different underlying issues which could result in a problem with your hydration levels. At times, you may lose excess water if you are exercising in hot weather through sweating. If you do not drink enough during the time that you are exercising, it could easily lead to this type of issue. A number of chronic diseases may also dehydrate you as well and it is more likely for older individuals to suffer from this problem than younger individuals.

Another issue which can lead to dehydration and at times, would require medical attention is if you have an ongoing problem with vomiting or diarrhea. A lot of water can be lost from the body during these issues and if you do not replace the water, you may find that you are suffering from various symptoms associated with not being hydrated properly. This is also an issue which makes it very difficult for you hydrate yourself by drinking water or other fluids, typically because they do not stay in your body to work their way into your cells. When you have these problems, the medical staff at Better Faster Urgent Care can assist you in finding the solution that would help with the situation.

Understanding the Symptoms of Dehydration

One of the first symptoms that will occur when you are not hydrated properly is that your mouth will become dry. This is a natural process of the human body that let you know that you need something to drink. It is also a process that tends to decline as we get older, which is why older individuals may suffer more frequently with hydration problems. Other symptoms can include a difficulty with sleeping, dry skin, a decrease in urine output, constipation, headaches and dizziness. More severe cases of dehydration can result in extreme thirst, sunken eyes, irritability, low blood pressure, fever and even unconsciousness.
