The summer is here, and we have already endured some very hot days.
Hopefully, we are all eating less, exercising more, and staying hydrated by drinking more water.
Water, the nutrient our body needs the most, also helps prevent dehydration. The effects of dehydration can range from thirst to kidney failure and are usually silent but progressive.
Therefore, we need to pay attention to the early signs of water loss because before we know it, we can become severely dehydrated.
