What is dehydration?
We lose water every day through natural bodily functions, but dehydration occurs when we lose more bodily fluids than we’re taking in. Because humans are made up of mostly water and electrolytes, we need to maintain the proper balance of these in our system. That means drinking fluids is important throughout the day. Proper hydration improves mood, boosts brain function, and prevents fatigue. It also helps to keep skin moisturized, produce necessary bodily fluids, such as tears and saliva, and remove waste through sweat, urination, and stool.
Several things can cause dehydration but anytime you or your little one experiences excessive loss of bodily fluids through sickness, it can be hard to stay hydrated. You or your little one may lose more water and electrolytes than you’re able to easily replace by eating and drinking. Be sure to talk with your doctor if you have questions or concerns about these symptoms of dehydration.
Bodily functions that can cause you or your kids
to lose fluids and electrolytes include:
Diarrhoea & Vomiting
Diarrhea and vomiting that comes on suddenly and severely can cause a quick loss of a lot of fluids and electrolytes
You lose a lot of water and electrolytes when you sweat, so the more you sweat, the sooner you may become dehydrated
If your pee is a darker color than usual, you may be dehydrated
