The importance of hydration as you age
Older people are at a higher risk of dehydration than adults.
With age, the proportion of water present in the body decreases significantly: from 60% to 50% of body weight, which implies that with age it is necessary to pay particular attention to hydration to benefit of a better level of energy.
During episodes of diarrhea and vomiting, the risk of dehydration is increased tenfold due to the water loss generated as well as the loss of minerals and electrolytes.

* The causes of dehydration in seniors and the elderly:
Seniors often receive many medical treatments, including diuretic drugs, which cause significant elimination of water consumed and water stored in the body.
Loss of thirst sensation is also a cause of dehydration. Indeed, with age we gradually lose this feeling of thirst which is caused by several factors including the weakening of motor skills and the dryness of the skin and lips.
Elderly people with a loss of autonomy may find it difficult to get up to get a glass of water, even when they are thirsty.
There is also a decrease in kidney function with age: the kidneys retain fluids less and less well.
Vomiting or diarrhea, which are linked to various illnesses, can also accelerate dehydration.
Hyperglycemia, which is the most common diabetes in seniors, causes an increase in the frequency and quantity of urine. This loss of liquids in the body, therefore causes a loss of liquid which can lead to dehydration.
