Do This - Not That: Prevent Dehydration

From the Fitness & Wellness After Hysterectomy Articles List

Stay hydrated for optimal health
What are some things I can do to try to not become dehydrated?


It can be easy to become dehydrated if you do not monitor your fluids or experience life changes. For instance, starting a new exercise program or changing your diet can lead to dehydration. If you get too busy with a new job or hobby, you might inadvertently not eat or drink enough and become dehydrated.

Being hydration is important for good health, so here are some do’s and don’ts you can follow so you can prevent dehydration.

DO THIS:

  • Keep fluid with you at all times so you can sip it all day long.
  • Add fruits and vegetables to your diet.
  • Add more fluid if you follow a high protein diet.
  • Be sure any dietary changes include adequate fluids.
  • Avoid getting too much heat or staying in the sun too long.
  • Eat a well balanced diet.
  • Pay attention to leg cramps--you may need electrolytes.
  • Know the symptoms of dehydration.

NOT THAT:

  • Don't forget to monitor your daily fluid intake.
  • Don’t drink excessive amounts of alcohol or caffeine.
  • Don’t include too much salt in your diet.
  • Don't forget to drink more as you become more active.
  • Don't replace too much water with sports drinks or alternative liquids.
  • Don’t forget to drink at least 8 glasses of water each day!
