HYDRATION AND SENIORS

My mom always told me since I can remember "have a glass of water when you get up in the morning," I didn't! That has changed, now I drink quite a bit of water because my MD has told me several times that my blood work results had shown  dehydration. Not a good thing! As we age water content decreases and this can cause a myriad of problems! Dehydration is a frequent cause of seniors being sent to the hospital. Drink water and other acceptable fluids during the course of the day. Speak to your MD to find out what amount of fluids you should be drinking? Probably based on age, activity and body weight.
