Signs That You Are Dehydrated

Ask any expert all over the world about the most contributing factor towards a healthy exercise regimen, and they will be pointing out water as the major roadblock. Water is one of the most important factors that help people to exercise. Therefore, it is very important to look out for the signs if you are suffering from dehydration. Below are the three major signs that shout dehydration:

  • Constant Headaches: Your body is constantly losing water all throughout the day. Therefore, it is very important to make sure that you are constantly replacing your water supply. Losing out on water also loses out sodium and potassium. With the loss of the salt in the body, the chemical composition of the blood changes as well, and this triggers headache. Depending on the amount of water that is being lost, the headaches tend to worsen as well. Due to the dilation of the blood vessels, the headaches of the person too can worsen.
  • Yellowness of the Urine: Though this may sound like quite gross, however this is quite true. Due to dehydration, the urine becomes extremely over concentrated with the excessive wastes. However, when the person is fully hydrated, then the water helps to flush out the waste products in a normal way. Due to the less amount of water, the wastes are not flushed out easily, which leads to the yellowish tinge in the urine.
  • Constipation: Again, this can be cringing, but is very true. The reason for constipation is also the same. Water helps the waste products to move easily through the colon of the person and out of the body. When a person is suffering from dehydration, the food waste is not able to move easily through the intestines and therefore constipation arises.
