Signs of Dehydration in High Temperatures

The Silent Danger: Understanding and Preventing Dehydration in Everyday Life

Dehydration is a common condition that can have serious consequences on the body. It occurs when the body does not have enough necessary fluids, leading to symptoms such as dry skin, seizures, shock, and coma. The body loses water every day through various means like sweating, urination, and tears, which is a normal process. However, inadequate intake of water through food and drink can contribute to more severe cases of dehydration.

Certain groups are at a higher risk of dehydration, including infants and young children prone to diarrhea and vomiting, as well as older adults who may have difficulty walking or be less inclined to drink water. People with colds or chronic diseases like diabetes that cause frequent urination are also more susceptible, as well as individuals who work outdoors in hot conditions.

The severity of dehydration can range from mild, with symptoms like thirst and dry mouth, to severe, with symptoms like dizziness, sunken eyes, and fainting. Mild dehydration can typically be treated with water or electrolyte replacement drinks
