Water is an important component of the human body. Drinking water enables good body hydration and ensures the proper functioning of our body. This is especially important in some situations and ages. Dehydration is the loss of water and when our body does not have all the water or fluids it needs, it cannot perform its functions properly.
Under normal conditions, our body constantly loses water through sweat, tears, urine and feces. In a healthy person, that water is replenished by drinking fluids and eating foods that contain it. However, when there is a greater loss or if we do not replace what we lose throughout the day, we can suffer dehydration.
Dehydration occurs when we lose more water than we ingest. This water loss increases in certain situations.
The symptoms of dehydration are:
There is not always a reliable early indicator of the body's need for water. Some people, especially older people, are not thirsty until they are dehydrated. That is why it is important to always anticipate thirst and provide water to our body before it asks for it. Especially when you are working, playing or exercising under the sun on hot days.
Dehydration is classified as mild, moderate, or severe based on the percentage of body weight loss; the latter needs urgent attention in a health center because it can be fatal.
Sometimes water intake may be insufficient since, in addition to water, we lose electrolytes. That is why there are oral rehydration solutions that allow water and salts to be replaced, and allow the body to recover.
