How Does Dehydration Affect Your Body?
Summer is here and the heat that comes with it is not holding back. 2018 is going in the books as it breaks records for the hottest temperatures ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere. With having the hottest temperatures comes the increased risk of dehydration. Dehydration can strike anyone at any age but senior citizens and children have an increased risk. Even physical fitness does not make you less likely to become dehydrated.
The hotter weather brings everyone outdoors for family gatherings, sporting events, and recreational activities. Spending time outdoors at baseball games, barbeques, bike riding and at the beach is great as long as you stay properly hydrated.
Dehydration can cause headaches, dry mouth, dizziness and high blood pressure. If a person doesn’t hydrate, they can suffer coma, permanent organ damage, and even death! If you are in the sun, sweating and feeling the symptoms, please hydrate immediately.
Of course, drinking enough water is the best way to prevent dehydration. The amazing creative team at Avlonh2o.com has created an easy to follow infographic so help you determine how dehydration can affect you.
