Are You Hydrated?
How do you know if you are adequately Hydrated?
Some of the earliest signs of dehydration include thirst, headaches, loss of appetite, dry skin, unexplained tiredness, and irritability. These are similar signs/symptoms we discuss with our patients during an initial evaluation for physical therapy. Increasing the confusion, people over the age of 50 have a diminished thirst response that continues to decrease with age resulting in a lot of older, especially active older adults experiencing dehydration.
Water is the most vital source of energy in the body and dehydration can lead to feelings of tiredness and fatigue!
75% of Americans are DEHYDRATED!
