An Introduction to IV Therapy:
What is dehydration? It’s a real medical condition, so it should be addressed like one. 75% of people may be suffering from chronic dehydration. Every day our body loses fluid, electrolytes and vitamins via urine, sweat, saliva, and other bodily fluids. Usually, a normal, healthy diet will serve to replace lost electrolytes, vitamins and fluid.
Certain conditions such as heavy sweating, lack of food and fluid intake, vomiting and diarrhea, can lead to inadequate levels of fluid, electrolytes and vitamins within our bodies. 1 to 2 liters per hour of sweat could be lost while playing sports or exercising vigorously. During the process of dehydration, body fluid as well as critical electrolytes and vitamins are lost.
If the body isn’t replenished with fluids, electrolyte and vitamins, this will increase the risk of a heat illness such as heat stroke.
Common symptoms of dehydration include:
- Sticky or dry mouth
- Increased thirst
- Dry or tired skin
- Dark or decreased urine output
- Muscle cramp
- Lack of concentration
When you are thirsty you are already dehydrated!
Up to 85% of orally ingested fluids, vitamins and electrolytes will not be absorbed.
To function correctly and remain healthy, our body requires the correct internal balance of water, electrolytes and vitamins.
We only have to lose as little as 2% of our body weight rapidly and signs of dehydration will become apparent.
