Los Angeles IV Hydration Therapy

Treatment for Dehydration

Summers are hot in Los Angeles, and if you plan to keep working out during these scorching-weather months, it’s important to stay hydrated and replenish electrolytes lost through sweat. However, even if you do not exercise regularly, you can still become dehydrated. People who are very active or get sick frequently often deal with profuse sweating. When you sweat, your body loses electrolytes, which are minerals that help your muscles function. Plain water does not contain electrolytes and your body does not produce them on its own. Every person loses about a quart of fluids without noticing on any given day. This amount triples or quadruples with hot weather or excessively dry environments. Also, note that the feeling of thirst decreases with age, and a lot of elderly people do not notice when they get dehydrated. If you start experiencing symptoms of dehydration, IV hydration therapy at InfuseLife in Los Angeles can help.

We can administer saline solution enriched with rich electrolytes directly into your bloodstream. This will help your body replenish water and minerals faster so you can recover from dehydration quickly.

How to Recognize the Signs Dehydration

You can become dehydrated by sweating too much, urinating too much, or losing fluids when ill. Spending a lot of time in a heated or air-conditioned room can also cause dehydration. If you do not drink enough water when this happens, you can soon find yourself dealing with the effects of dehydration.

Symptoms of dehydration include:

  • Dizziness and disorientation
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Inability to urinate
  • Dry mouth
  • Weakness
  • Skin “tenting” (skin that does not flatten when pinched)
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Dark urine
  • Fainting

Unfortunately, once you start feeling the symptoms of dehydration, it can take a long time for the water you drink to counteract them. Water must go through your intestines before it is fully absorbed into the bloodstream. (We have about 20 feet of intestines—it is a long way to go.) IV Hydration Therapy can help you overcome dehydration more quickly and prevent serious medical complications.

Please note that drinking water is very important when suffering dehydration, but this alone is not enough. You will also need to replenish electrolytes by eating sodium and potassium. Bananas, most dried fruit, raspberries, tomatoes, broth from soup, fruit juices, and sports drinks can all help with this. You can also use whatever you have handy—for example, saltine crackers, pickles, a handful of raisins, etc.
