You probably know that our body is made up of 75% water.
-Fluid circulates in blood vessels, fills various cells and remains between cells. It is involved in many processes that help us stay healthy and active.
- We lose water throughout the day, and it evaporates when we breathe, cry, and sweat. Our body excretes water through urine and feces. A certain amount of electrolytes is removed from the body along with the fluid.
-Your body tries to match water intake to water loss to maintain normal function.
-Replenish body fluids, drink drinks and eat foods rich in water.
- However, we often fail to meet our water needs due to reasons such as being too busy, sick enough to drink a glass of water, or not having access to safe drinking water (travelling, camping, etc.).
- Loss of more fluid than absorbed by the body is called dehydration in medicine.
- This can occur for many reasons, including decreased thirst (in adults), high fever, severe diarrhea, severe vomiting, and increased urination (in people with high blood glucose or taking water pills).
In most cases, your body will warn you of dehydration before serious health problems develop. What are these warning signs?
- Dehydration can trigger migraines, especially if you are prone to these types of headaches. That is why after drinking a glass of pure water, the headache will subside.
-Inadequate water intake reduces the amount of saliva that keeps your mouth moist. It causes an unpleasant sensation in the mouth and bad breath.
Changes in urine
-If you don’t drink enough, your body conserves water and reduces the amount of urine. Moreover, this urine is highly concentrated and becomes more yellow than normal.
- Due to the lack of fluids, even if you sleep peacefully at night, you feel sleepy all the time.
-you know, you lose salt and electrolytes with liquid. If these losses are not corrected, electrolyte imbalances in the body can occur, which can sometimes lead to muscle cramps in the limbs.
-You may feel dizzy or light-headed for many reasons. And water scarcity is one of them.
- When you’re dehydrated, you may feel very tired, even if you haven’t been doing vigorous physical activity.
HEART LESSON INCREASED
-In advanced cases, dehydration can cause the heart to beat too fast to compensate for the drop in blood pressure caused by massive dehydration.
