Winter Dehydration is a Threat to Your Health
Now that the hot summer air is gone until next year, it’s time to prepare your body for the cold winter months.
Many people overlook the fact that dehydration can set in even when outdoor temperatures are below freezing. This is particularly true in certain groups of people, such as:
· Anyone with a chronic illness
· Those with diabetes
· Older individuals
· Small children and infants
If you’re concerned about winter dehydration, here are seven signs that you may be heading down this path:
· Extreme thirst
· Dry lips and skin
· Nausea and vomiting
· Dark yellow urine
When the temperature is cold, you may not realize you’re becoming dehydrated. However, this can set in quickly, so you need to pay close attention to the symptoms above.
If you realize you’re headed down this path, stop what you’re doing and rehydrate. Pushing yourself too far can lead to a severe case of dehydration, which can put your overall health at risk.
