      Hydration Q + A

      Hydration Q+A

      The summer heat is upon us, and we all know the importance of staying hydrated – body temperature regulation, infection prevention, keeping cells healthy, and more. We’re here to answer some of the most common hydration FAQ’s to avoid dehydration issues this summer and continue the fun under the sun:

      Q: How do you know if I’m dehydrated?

      A: General symptoms of dehydration include constipation, dry mouth, fatigue, headaches, sleep trouble, and mood imbalance.

      Q: What to do I do if I am feeling some of the above dehydration symptoms?

      A: Start with small sips of water and gradually work up to drinking more. Avoid dehydrating drinks including alcohol, caffeinated drinks, and energy drinks. Over-the-counter pain relievers and rest can also assist with dehydration headaches. If severe symptoms persist, we suggest immediate medical attention.

      Q: What foods are the most hydrating?

      A: While some hydrating foods, like cucumber and watermelon may be obvious, there are also a few ‘hidden treasure’ hydrating foods, including mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, and asparagus.

      Q: What are symptoms of chronic dehydration?

      A: Chronic dehydration can lead to other health conditions, including high blood pressure and kidney stones. Symptoms of chronic dehydration include dry or flaky skin, ongoing muscle weakness, and constant fatigue. If these are symptoms you’re experience, we urge you to visit a doctor to properly run tests for diagnosis.
