When you think of dehydration, you may think of something that only very sick elderly patients deal with when they are admitted to the hospital. Dehydration occurs when the cells throughout the body do not have enough fluid to work properly. They are also typically missing many of the necessary electrolytes that are generally found in bodily fluids. While thirst may be a symptom of dehydration, true dehydration is much more than that. It is very serious and can even be deadly if not addressed quickly. Thankfully, most dehydration is easily treated by a skilled practitioner and can quickly be turned around with some professional help. For example, we often treat this issue with IV nutrition drips.
A Closer Look at Dehydration
When you are dehydrated, you may or may not feel like drinking more water. In fact, you may not even know that you are dehydrated. Your body may be trying to tell you that, but you may not recognize the symptoms, such as headaches, poor skin tone, less urine than usual or even dizziness. You may even feel poor concentration, lack of energy and extreme tiredness. Of course, some of the more recognizable symptoms include extreme thirst and dry mouth. If you are unable to drink more water because of a medical condition or a disease or if drinking increased amounts of water is just not enough to get your body back to normal, IV nutrition drips can certainly help.
What are IV Nutrition Drips?
The beauty of an IV nutrition drip is that you can get the fluid that your cells so desperately need and you can get the electrolytes that may also be missing from your dehydrated cells. We offer different types of drips depending on your needs. Of course, we will thoroughly assess you before giving any type of IV drip so that we know which one would best meet your needs.
How It Works
Receiving an IV nutrition drip is perfectly safe. By letting the fluid go right into your bloodstream rather than through your digestive tract, it can be even more effective in reaching your needy cells. It will quickly be pumped throughout your body to do the greatest good.
IV nutrition drips are great solutions for dehydration as well as for general improved health. You may be amazed at how much more energy you will have after a single treatment.
