Feeling dehydrated? Not sure? A quick test to check for dehydration is to gently pinch the back of your hand and hold for a few seconds.

When you let go, your skin should snap back into position pretty quickly. If it stays standing up in a tent and slow to return to normal, take that as one of the signs of dehydration and time to get dose of H2O.

Cancer patients are at high risk for dehydration from both the disease and the treatment. Other symptoms include increased thirst and a dry or sticky mouth, signs of fatigue, dry eyes or blurred vision, headaches or disorientation, muscle cramps, lack of sweat, dark urine and fever.

Don’t forget your Hydralyte in Kit. Hydralyte is the best thing to ensure that you replenish all of your electrolytes back into their body.
