How can I get hydrated quickly?

Question Posted Saturday September 11 2010, 7:46 am

I haven't been drinking enough water lately and I feel like I'm really dehydrated and my skin feels dry even. I was wondering if there was anything I could drink or do that would get me hydrated fast? When I asked my mom she looked at me like I was crazy so maybe water is the only thing but I wanted to ask you guys first. Thankyou

Water is the only thing that can truly hydrate you..other things like soda or drinks just add calories to you..but water not only washes your inside, but it also give you your energy back..

Drinking more water. Also gatorade would be good because of the electrolytes.
I have a friend who gets dehydrated really fast and she gets dizzy and feels like she is about to pass out. She had to go to the doctors for that and they found that something was wrong. Well, she was on the verge of being there. I forgot what the name was for it..but she was almost at that point. So maybe see the doctor if it gets worse and keep drinking water.

If you are dehydrated, water is about the best thing for you. Gatorade, Pedialyte, or other electrolyte (read: salt) containing drinks are useful too.

If you prefer a more direct approach, you could get some IV saline (salt water pumped into your blood stream), but I wouldn't recommend it unless you are severely dehydrated and have medical training.

I'm more concerned with how you know you're dehydrated. In general, if you're thirsty or sick, you should drink more (assuming normal kidney function). Beyond that, you're probably not dehydrated.

If your skin feels dry, I recommend lotion.
