5 reasons why you may need hydration IV therapy

Blue water for dehydration.

Up to 75% of your body is made up of water and every cell in your body needs water to function. Yet, we are constantly losing water, through sweat, urine, and just breathing. Taking in the right amount of water to replace what’s lost is a balancing act. 

That’s why dehydration is serious – from a functional medicine standpoint, even mild dehydration can be detrimental to your health and overall well-being.

Estimates vary, but at least one-third of adults in the U.S. are dehydrated. Some sources say that number is much higher and that up to 75% of Americans suffer from dehydration.

You may know to watch for signs of dehydration when you’re working outside in the heat, exercising a lot, or if you get a stomach bug that causes vomiting or diarrhea. But there are many other reasons why people get dehydrated that aren’t so obvious.

Let’s look at five scenarios that can be associated with dehydration and how you can benefit from Hydration IV therapy at Advanced Integrative Wellness (AIW) in Kenwood, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Poor sleep habits & dehydration

You hear a lot about the importance of sleep, so it shouldn’t be surprising that not getting enough sleep can affect your hydration status. In one study, getting six hours of sleep increased the chance of dehydration compared to getting eight hours of sleep. When you’re having trouble getting enough sleep, be sure to drink plenty of water during the day and consider Hydration IV.

How much water should you drink to prevent dehydration?
Although water needs vary, researchers recommend about 13 cups/day for men and 9 cups/day for women (more if pregnant or breastfeeding). While most of this should come from drinking plain water, you can also count other non-alcoholic, caffeine-free liquids, such as milk, coffee, tea, juice, and broth.

Over age 60? Dehydration is a concern

The risk of dehydration increases as we age. We can blame some of this on the fact that after about age 60, the body doesn’t hold onto as much water. But aging also affects the sensation of thirst. When you don’t feel thirsty as often, it’s easier to get dehydrated without knowing it. If you’re over age 60, you may want to consider IV hydration therapy once or twice a month to ensure that your body has the water it needs.  

Certain health conditions & dehydration

Staying adequately hydrated can help prevent some pesky, if not pretty painful, health issues from cropping up. Kidney stones, urinary tract infections, constipation, and headaches may be your body crying out for hydration. A Hydration IV may be just what you need to find relief and prevent these health conditions.

Lack of energy: Could it be dehydration?

If your energy lags in the afternoon or you just feel lethargic, you could be dehydrated. Dehydration can also make you tire more easily during exercise. Hydration IV may help you get your energy back and feel refreshed.

Mood and mental functioning affected by dehydration

When you’re dehydrated, you may experience more anger, confusion, depression, and tension. Even mild dehydration can cause this moodiness, as well as affect your ability to think clearly, concentrate, and get your work done. If you’re experiencing symptoms like these, a Hydration IV can help you determine if dehydration is part of the issue.
