About Dehydration

DehydrationDehydration occurs when a person does not have enough fluid in their body and can be fatal unless treated.

Fluid is lost through a number of ways, including excessive sweating, vomiting, diarrhoea and excessive urine output.

The symptoms of dehydration include dry mouth, muscle cramps, palpitations, light-headedness and nausea - although these are not the only natural reactions.

For mild dehydration, the best treatment is to drink fluids little and often, as increasing intake too much can lead to vomiting.

Rehydration salts can be purchased in Terry White Chemists stores to replace any lost electrolytes.

Severe cases of dehydration must be referred to a medical professional, where the person may be given fluids intravenously.

Head to your local Terry White Chemists store to discuss potential treatments for dehydration.
