Warning Signs of Dehydration

Yosef Meystel News

Just because it’s not summer and the temperatures aren’t rising, doesn’t mean you can’t get dehydrated. It’s important to know the signs of dehydration.

Dehydration is when the body lacks enough bodily fluids and can be prevented with enough consumption of water. While there is no specific amount of water that everyone needs to consume; it’s suggest about eight 8 oz glasses of water or enough water that keeps your urine clear or a light yellow.

The signs of dehydration are:

  • Thirst
  • Dryness of the mouth or tongue, skin and lips
  • Sluggishness
  • Sunken appearance of the eyes
  • Light-headedness or dizziness
  • A high fever
  • Dark urine/decreased urine output

Water is the best choice when it comes to hydrating the body, while soda pops are the worst. Dr. Oz suggests drinking one glass of water for every caffeinated drink. If a fever, confusion or rapid breathing happens it’s best to call a doctor for further assistance in the dehydration.
