You sweat more during the warmer Summer weather, especially if you’re out in the heat. Drinking water helps replenish the fluids lost by excessive sweating to avoid dehydration.
Hot temperatures combined with dehydration can lead to serious heat-related illnesses.
When you are undergoing cancer treatment, side effects such as vomiting or diarrhea can also lead to dehydration. Infections, high fever, bleeding or merely not drinking enough fluids also can lead to dehydration.
Common symptoms of dehydration include:
- Sticky or dry mouth
- Increased thirst
- Dark yellow or decreased urine output
- Muscle cramps
- Lack of concentration
We have included Hydralyte in Kit as it’s the best thing to ensure that you replenish all of your electrolytes back into your body. There are a variety of yummy flavours to choose from, which is a bonus!
