Dehydration is a depletion of body fluids that occurs when fluids are lost from the gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract and skin. The body requires a certain amount of fluid intake on a daily basis to function. Requirements vary with activity and age, but most active persons need two to three times this basic amount.
Basic fluid intake serves to replace the fluids which are required to perform our normal bodily functions. Taking in less or lose more fluid than is needed, will result in dehydration.
