Dehydration

The doctors at Gonzaba Urgent Care understand that dehydration is no joking matter. When you’re dehydrated, your body doesn’t have enough fluid to work properly. An average person on an average day needs about 3 quarts of water. But if you’re out in the hot sun, you’ll need a lot more than that. Most healthy bodies are very good at regulating water. Elderly people, young children and some special cases – like people taking certain medications – need to be a little more careful.

Signs of dehydration in adults include

  • Being thirsty
  • Urinating less often than usual
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Dry skin
  • Feeling tired
  • Dizziness and fainting

Our medical staff at Gonzaba Urgent Care is dedicated to provide you the best care for your medical needs. For more information about dehydration, please contact Gonzaba Urgent Care (210)921-6600.
