5 Dehydration Symptoms and Signs

Symptoms of dehydration occur due to the ratio of water being used against how much water you are taking in. When you sweat, you lose a lot of liquids as well as salt from the body. Rejuvenating the body with what you’ve lost is essential in avoiding dehydration. There are initial signs that will increasingly become worse if you don’t nurture the body.

To avoid dehydration, experts are saying you should drink half of your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 150 lbs, you should consume 75 ounces of water per day. Here is a list of symptoms that are indications the body gives you to let you know you’re dehydrated.

Your body will send you messages of thirst which will include a dry mouth and sore throat. Your thirst can be a gauge for how dehydrated you are. For mild dehydration the thirst will be subtle, while severe dehydration leaves you with extreme thirst.

Thirst is the body letting you know it needs fluids so ensure that once thirst sets in, you drink something immediately. If you drink water as soon as you feel thirty, you’ll likely nip dehydration in the bud. Water with salt is the best thing you can drink, fruit or fruit juices are acceptable also.
