Many patients on chemotherapy experience nausea and vomiting, some more severely than others. You might not be drinking enough fluids and things get off-balance. Hydralyte is one of the best things to ensure that you replenish all of your electrolytes back into your body if you are dehydrated.
Some of the signs of dehydration can be increased thirst, decreased urine output and feeling lethargic. To function correctly, your body needs both water and electrolytes (such as sodium, potassium and chloride). Water helps to maintain body temperature, digest food and lubricate tissues and joints. Electrolytes, help to retain fluid, and maintain good nerve and muscle function.
There are a variety of yummy flavours to choose from. We have included Hydralyte in our Kit for Cancer case.
Consult your medical team if you are unable to eat due to ongoing nausea or diarrhea you are unable to take your medications or if there is persistent vomiting that cannot be controlled with anti nausea drugs.
