The effects of good hydration in winter to keep in shape: evening infusions and Hydratis

The effects of good hydration in winter to keep in shape: evening infusions and Hydratis

The phenomenon of dehydration in winter:

Two-thirds of the body is made up of water. This means that for a weight of about 70 kilos), the human body contains about 46 liters of water. Nearly 70% of the water is contained in the cells, 20% in the space surrounding the cells and a little less than 10% in the bloodstream. Water is essential for maintaining the health of the body.

When the amount of water consumed matches the amount excreted, the body's water reserves are well balanced. If you are healthy and do not sweat excessively, you should drink at least 2 to 3 liters of fluid per day (about 8 glasses of water) to maintain your fluid balance and protect against certain complications, such as formation of renal lithiasis.

Dehydration can occur when the body's water supply is insufficient, even in the middle of winter!

Dehydration is not “a disease” strictly speaking, it is a physiological state with more or less important consequences. This physiological state then results from a substantial decrease in fluid within the body. Dehydration can be due to malnutrition, severe diarrhea or because of the heat, especially in summer. This liquid, in quantity lower than normal, in the case of a state of dehydration, consists essentially of water and mineral salts.

Dehydration can affect anyone, but special attention should be given to young children and the elderly.

The causes of dehydration

Diarrhea , the main consequences of dehydration, are caused by:

  • lack of hygiene;

  • malnutrition, especially with regard to "water-rich" foods;

  • contact and/or hydration with contaminated water.

This state of dehydration can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender or place of residence. Nevertheless, the elderly as well as children and infants are categories of people to be considered with more attention. Indeed, as far as the elderly are concerned, they sometimes find it more difficult to hydrate themselves regularly, in periods of high heat but also during the cold in winter. As for children, in the period of growth, the consequences of dehydration are more serious than in adults. In this sense, promoting hydration in these categories of people is essential.

When diarrhea is not treated immediately, it can be dangerous. Indeed, the loss of water and mineral salts can have significant consequences in the functioning of the body (vital organs, muscles, brain, etc.), and all the more so in growing children or even in the elderly, whose body is weakened.

In order to avoid the aggravation of dehydration, it is important to continue a consistent hydration, i.e. nearly 1.5 L of water per day.

Dehydration may seem unlikely during the winter because we have less

warm and sweat less than in summer. However, as we age, changes in our bodies put us at greater risk of dehydration, regardless of the weather.

Symptoms of dehydration in winter:

Dehydration is apparent through certain specific signs, including:

  • less need to urinate;

  • the absence of tears;

  • dry tongue, parched lips and skin;

  • "grayish" skin;

  • a depression of the fontanelle (soft part of the skull of the infant);

Diarrhea, vomiting, are the most demonstrative signs.

Other symptoms can also accompany this diarrheal state: fever, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain or abdominal cramps .

The presence ofblood in the stool testifies to significant dehydration, this is the most alarming state

Diarrhea is usually mild, and can also occur during winter epidemics of acute viral gastroenteritis. But drugs, bacteria, viruses, other parasites and intoxications in general are also responsible for acute diarrhea that must sometimes be taken seriously, when it lasts more than 3 to 4 days, when it is accompanied by blood and mucus, fever above 39°C or dehydration. Some intestinal diseases can also cause diarrhea and symptoms of dehydration in general.

In the event of diarrhoea, hygiene must be even more careful to limit contamination of the environment and the transmission of the germs responsible for this condition: hand washing, disinfection of toilets after use, door handles, etc.

Certain medications and treatments are likely to aggravate an exhaustion-dehydration syndrome, according to the National Medicines Safety Agency (ANSM). People with chronic illnesses, infants and the elderly are the first to be affected. According to doctors, a state of severe dehydration can lead to serious consequences, including death.
