Updated: May 22, 2023

The warm weather has arrived which means lots of outdoor activities. There is the beach, yard work, gardening, baseball. . . everything is outdoors. This means that there is lots of fluid loss due to sweating and not drinking enough water/fluids to replace what we are losing. This tends to result in dehydration.

* Drinking alcohol


SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF DEHYDRATION:

* Headache

* Fatigue

* Concentrated urine (darker color)

* Cramps & muscle spasms
