Benefit # 4 – IV Therapy for Dehydration

by | Benefits

This is installment #4 of our “14 Proven Benefits of IV Therapy” Series.

75% of Americans suffer from chronic dehydration. It is also the leading reason for hospital admittance in the United States at a cost of more than $5 billion annually. About three quarters of the human body is water. Water is found in cells, between cells, and within blood vessels. Dehydration occurs when more water leaves the body than enters it. 

Symptoms of dehydration include:

  • Fatigue 
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure 
  • Allergies
  • Headaches
  • Increase in sugar cravings
  • Cramps 
  • Weakness in muscles 
  • Dry skin
  • Dizziness
  • Lethargy 
  • Fever 
  • Constipation
  • Bad Breath

Dehydration can be treated by replenishing the fluid levels in the body. This can be done using IV Therapy. At wHydrate, our saline fluid bags contain sodium, potassium, and other electrolytes to get the levels to where they need to be.
