The Dangers Of Dehydration

Are you part of the 47% of Americans who don’t drink enough water? Low water intake disrupts your mineral and salt content leading to dehydration. IV hydration therapy administers vitamins and minerals through your bloodstream for 100% absorption.

60% of your body is made up of water. It lubricates your eyes and joints. Water helps aid your body in digestion and ensures beautiful, healthy skin.  

However, 47% of Americans don’t drink enough water. When you don’t drink enough water, your mineral and salt content is disrupted, preventing your body from optimal functioning and in worse cases – causing dehydration. 

Do you find it hard to drink enough water? Are you feeling emotionally and physically low?  

IV hydration therapy at Southern Secrets Medical Spa, located in Conroe, Texas, safely administers vitamins and minerals through your bloodstream for a 100% absorption rate. Read on to discover more about treatment and the dangers of dehydration. 

Supercharge your body with vitamins and minerals

Vitamins and minerals are the keys to a healthy lifestyle. Many people find it hard and costly to incorporate fresh, nutrient-dense foods into their busy work schedules. Did you know 92% of Americans are lacking at least one essential vitamin? 

While supplements can help fill the void, they travel in your blood through your digestive system, allowing only 10% to be absorbed. 

IV hydration therapy offers a 100% absorption rate so you can hydrate your body to peak levels and enjoy a variety of health and beauty benefits, including:

  • Promoting quicker weight loss
  • Cleaning your body of toxins and free radicals
  • Improving your energy levels
  • Reducing anxiety and depression
  • Preventing migraines
  • Improving cardiovascular health
  • Boosting your immune system
  • Providing anti-aging properties

Hydration IV therapy is safe for most people over the age of 18 who are in good health. 

Exploring the dangers of dehydration

Living in Texas comes with sunny weather year-round. However, high temperatures also mean higher rates of dehydration.  

Dehydration occurs when your body loses more liquid than you’re taking in, and as a result, it can’t carry on with vital functions. People at any age can become dehydrated, but it’s especially dangerous for young children and older adults.  

Early signs of dehydration include:

  • Extreme thirst
  • Urinating less frequently
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Dark-colored urine

Early dehydration can be reversed if you drink water, but if left untreated, can lead to the following health complications. 

Heat injury

Heat injury occurs when your body can’t control its temperature. Your temperature rises and your sweating system fails, so your body cannot cool down. This often occurs when you’re exercising vigorously and perspiring on a hot day.  

In severe cases, this can lead to heat stroke – when your body temperature rises to 106 degrees Fahrenheit or higher in as little as ten minutes. 

Kidney and urinary problems

Frequent dehydration, even in mild cases, can cause kidney damage. Dehydration leads to concentrated urine and a high level of minerals which can irritate the bladder and lead to painful bladder syndrome. 


Electrolytes assist in carrying electrical messages from cell to cell. Dehydration can cause your electrolytes to get out of balance, which mixes up electrical signals and leads to involuntary muscle contractions – also known as seizures. 

Hypovolemic shock

Hypovolemic shock occurs when you lose more than 15% of your blood or fluid supply and your heart function is harmed. When your body loses a large amount of fluid, your heart has a hard time pumping enough blood to your body. This life-threatening condition requires immediate medical assistance.
