What happens to the body during dehydration? Source:

to avoid dehydration, you can even put up a notice on the mobile — a glass of water ever will not be superfluous.

Everyone's Body is 60-80% water — its amount depends on our age, physical activity level and health status. Water plays an important role in the work of all internal organs, so when it is deficiency a person starts to think badly and feel physical weakness. A deficiency may occur because we regularly derive the fluid through urine, sweat and even breathing. Adults and healthy people to maintain water balance in the body quite easily, because for that you just need and time to eat. But infants, the elderly and workers who are forced to work in the heat, very susceptible dehydration. But what happens to the human body when lack of water? This question has already been well studied and scientists have for his very full answer.

dehydration Symptoms

That happens to a person during dehydration, told a new Zealand researcher Toby Mundel (Toby Mundel). The shortage of water in the body the person feels thirst, throat becomes dry and all he wants is a glass of cool water. According to Toby Mandela when a person begins to feel thirsty it is already dehydrated. He explained that the sense of thirst lags far behind the actual deficit of body fluids. From this it follows that if the person is not thirsty, it does not mean that water balance it's all good.

Some researchers recommended to drink eight 240 ml glasses of water per day.

If the person loses at least 1% of its optimal rate of the water balance, it is already at this time begins to feel ill. Ailments are directly related to improper brain function, which for 70-80% consists of water. Fluid in the brain necessary for brain cells to produce more of the so-called neurotransmitters, required to transmit nerve impulses between the cells. Therefore, when the amount of water in the body decreases, the brain starts to suffer.

And from the brain, as we know, depends on the functioning of all other organs of the body. In humans, impairs coordination, and the blood becomes thick on the cardiovascular system imposed a big burden. If you don't drink water, you can be so weakened that when making one of the movements you can just faint. If the body lacks water, people can not go to the toilet and sweat in the body begin to accumulate harmful substances, and the temperature rises.

don't forget about Pets — they also want to drink it!

Daily water

To the question "how much water should you drink a day?" difficult to give a definite answer. If you dig online, you can see that the recommended intake of water for an adult is two liters per day. But researchers from the National medical Academy USA in 2004 that the daily rate of water depends on the sex of the person:

the
    the
  • men should drink 3.7 liters of water per day;
  • the
  • women every day is recommended to drink 2.7 liter of water.

But in the beginning of the article we mentioned that the optimal water content in the body depends on three factors: age, physical activity and health. This was even mentioned by my colleague Daria mausoleum in the material on a similar theme it , which daily rate of water can be determined by body weight. If a person weighs 60 kilos, every day he should drink 1.8 litres of water. If body weight is 80 kilograms, you should drink at least 2.4 liters.

the Same table from the article Daria Yelets

All true, but the table is relevant only for healthy people who do not live in the hottest countries of the world. But if a person is sick, it is necessary to increase the amount of water consumed. Because the high temperature many people sweating, thereby increasing the risk of dehydration. And if a person is sick, then the fluid lost with vomiting. Not make up for the amount released from the body of water, you can also cause problems with brain function and cardiovascular system.

It is Important to note that we should drink clean water because the water from the tap can cause the body great harm. About it at the time, Daria Yelets also wrote — welcome .
