What is dehydration?

Dehydration occurs when you lose more fluid than you take in, and your body does not have as much water as it needs. Common causes of dehydration include inadequate intake, diarrhea, vomiting and fever. Dehydration can also lead to serious complications including seizures, urinary and kidney problems.

Symptoms of dehydration

  • Dry Mouth

  • Decrease in urine volume

  • Unintentional weight loss of more than 5% or 1-2kg in a month

  • Dry armpits

  • Hallucinations

Questions your doctor may ask to check for dehydration

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose dehydration

  • Do you have dry mouth?

  • Are you passing less urine?

  • Have you had unintentional weight loss of more than 2 kgs in a month?

  • Do your armpits feel dry recently?

  • Have you ever seen, heard, or smelt something that did not actually exist?

Treatment for dehydration

To prevent dehydration, it is advisable to drink plenty of fluids and include foods with high water content, such as fruits, in your diet. In severe cases of dehydration, your doctor may replenish the fluid level in your body by giving you intravenous fluids if oral rehydration is insufficient.
