Could I Be Dehydrated Even Though I'm Not Thirsty?

Tuesday, 20 Apr 2010 09:12 AM

Question: Could I be dehydrated even though I'm not thirsty?

Dr. Brownstein's Answer:

Yes. People do not drink enough water and drink too much coffee and too many caffeinated and artificially flavored drinks. These drinks not only supply items not healthy for our bodies, but they can actually make a dehydration situation worse.

Maintaining adequate hydration supplies the basic building blocks for a healthy immune system and for maintaining good brain function.
