Make sure you always drink enough fluids
Becoming extremely dehydrated—defined by the World Health Organization as when you lose more than 10% of your body weight in fluid—is a potentially life-threatening condition. Dehydration occurs when you use or lose more fluid than you take in, and your body doesn't have enough water and other fluids to carry out its normal functions.
So, what are the symptoms, and how can you prevent dehydration?
Browse the galley for an overview of the dangers of dehydration. And remember, always seek expert medical advice about symptoms and causes, diagnosis and treatment.
