Health Tip: Prevent Dehydration

(HealthDay News) -- It's easy to get dehydrated if you're not careful. A stomach bug, sweating outside in the hot weather, and just not drinking enough water can lead to dehydration, a serious condition.

Stay well-hydrated with these suggestions from the U.S. National Library of Medicine:
  • Drink plenty of fluids -- especially water -- each day.

  • When exercising or sweating, and during hot weather, be sure to drink more water.

  • Elderly people, children and people who are sick need to be carefully monitored to prevent dehydration.

  • Drink plenty of fluids if you are vomiting, have a fever, or have diarrhea.

  • If you think you may be starting to get dehydrated, contact your doctor at once -- before you start to have symptoms.

  • Warning signs of dehydration may include: not producing tears, sunken eyes, little or no urine output for eight hours or more, rapid heartbeat, listlessness, and dry skin, mouth or eyes.
