What is Dehydration?
Mild to moderate dehydration is commonly defined as 2-6% of body weight loss through fluids. Our bodies require the correct internal balance of water and electrolytes to function correctly and remain healthy. Every day we lose fluid and electrolytes via urine, sweat, saliva, and other bodily fluids. Usually, a normal, healthy diet will serve to replace our lost electrolytes and fluid. Certain conditions such as vomiting and diarrhea, heavy sweating, or lack of food and fluid intake can lead to inadequate levels of fluid and electrolytes within our bodies.
