Deficiency of water and what you need to know

What is the lack of water in the body?
Dehydration or hypertonia occurs when there is an imbalance of water and salt in your body. Losing too much water when excessive salt in the fluid outside of your cells causes dehydration. Some of the causes are:

Drinking is not enough water
Sweating too
Drugs that cause a lot of diarrhea
Drinking seawater
Hydrotherapy or Hypertonic is different from the hypotonic one, which is due to salt deficiency in the body. When drinking distilled water and salt water, isotonic drinking water is created.

What happens if there is no water in the body?
Body temperature is not set.
Electrolytes will be unbalanced.
Joints may not work properly.
The brain may swell.
Blood pressure may increase or decrease.
Symptoms of dehydration or hypertonicity
You may not notice symptoms when your body's water scarcity is low. However, conditions may get worse and show more symptoms.

Symptoms of water deficiency include:

Thirst, which is sometimes intense
The mouth is very dry
Fatigue
Being quiet
Too active reflexes
Dermal tissue
Continuous muscle contraction
Seizure
High body temperature
The above symptoms are hypertonic, there are many similar symptoms in standard dehydration. When you are suffering from a lack of water, you may have some or all of these symptoms:

Mild dehydration can cause headaches, weight loss, fatigue, thirst, dry skin, long eyes and urine.
Moderate and severe water shortages can cause fatigue, confusion, muscle cramps, poor kidney function, increased urine output, and heart rate.
Severe dehydration can lead to shock, weakness, very low blood pressure, no urine output, and more severe deaths.
Infants with moderate to severe or dehydrated infections may have the following conditions:

Cry without tears
Reduces skin moisture
Fatigue
Metabolic disorders
Penetration (dip) soft part of the skull
Causes of Hydrotherapy or Hypertonic
Hypertonic hypothyroidism is more common in infants and the elderly. The most common causes of diarrhea are high fever and vomiting. This can lead to dehydration and salt imbalance. Infants can develop diarrhea and vomiting without having the ability to drink water. Hypertonic is sometimes caused by diabetes mellitus or diabetes.

Hypertonic Diagnosis
If your doctor thinks that you may have hypertonic water scarcity, the symptoms will be mentioned. They can confirm the conditions by measuring the concentration of sodium. They may also be looking for the following:

Increased blood urea nitrogen
Increased serum glucose
Low levels of serum calcium if serum potassium is low
Treatment for water deficiency in the body
Water shortages can be treated at home in general. Water shortages generally require treatment by a doctor. A quicker treatment for the treatment of hypertonic anemia is oral and dental treatment. This liquid substitute contains a little sugar and salt. Although too much salt causes water to dry out, salt is needed with water or there is a possibility of swelling in the brain.

If you can not tolerate an oral treatment, your doctor may recommend intravenous salt of 0.9%. This treatment means that your serum sodium decreases slowly. If your body does not have enough water in your body for less than a day, you may be able to do this within 24 hours. For conditions that last longer than one day, treatment with two to three days may be better.

While in the process of treatment, your doctor may monitor your weight, urine and electrolytes to make sure you get the fluids at the right time. When you return your urine to normal, you may receive potassium in a reconstitution, re-dilution, or urine replacement solution, or to maintain fluid levels.

Hypertonic dehydration is treatable. When the condition returns to normal, knowing the symptoms of dehydration can help you avoid it. Be sure to refer to the doctor. Fortunately, a decrease in body weight usually results in a complete recovery.

You may have heard that you should drink eight glasses a day. The IOM recommends men drink at least 104 ounces of water per day, equivalent to 13 cups. They say women should use at least 72 oz, which is equivalent to 9 cups. However, it's not easy to answer the question of how much you should drink water a day.

recommendations
70% of your body weight is water. Each body in your body needs water. Recommended use varies according to gender, age, level of activity, etc., for example, during pregnancy.

adults
The current IOM recommendations for people over the age of 19 are about 131 ounces for men and 95 oz for women. This is the amount of fluid intake per day, including anything you eat or a drink containing water, like fruits and vegetables. Men should get about 13 cups of beverages. This amount for women is 9 cups.

children
Boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 8 should drink 5 cups a day.
It ranges from 7 to 8 cups aged 9 to 13 years.
For ages 14 to 18 years, the recommended water intake is 8 to 11 cups.
Women in Pregnancy
In situations of pregnancy or lactation, the situation is different. Pregnant women of different ages should consume 10 to 13 cups of water.

Some foods that have high water content include:
Watermelon, cantaloupe, spinach, cucumber, green pepper, berries, cauliflower, lettuce, radishes, celery
