Dehydration – Symptoms and Causes

The absence of water and electrolytes necessary for regular bodily function results from dehydration, which happens when the body loses more fluids than it takes in. It may be brought on by a fever with a high temperature, vomiting, or dehydration. The symptoms include headaches, fatigue, disorientation, thirst, and, in severe situations, heatstroke. Elderly people and children are especially at danger from dehydration. While elderly people have less body water and may take medications that improve urine production, children might become dehydrated as a result of severe diarrhea and vomiting. Extra fluids can generally be consumed to manage mild to moderate dehydration, but severe cases require immediate medical attention, including IV fluids. It's crucial to act fast when someone is thirsty and to keep those who are susceptible hydrated. Here you know more about that at IMC Hospital.
