Dehydration requires immediate therapy via rehydrating the body with fluids and also treating the underlying cause. It can be tested for by a physical examination which reveals features like sunken eyes and an increased heart rate and also via laboratory tests which include complete blood count, blood urea nitrogen and creatinine. This condition must be dealt with immediately as it can prove to be fatal in severe cases.
“Dehydration describes a state of negative fluid balance that may be caused by numerous disease entities. Diarrheal illnesses are the most common etiologies. Worldwide, dehydration secondary to diarrheal illness is the leading cause of infant and child mortality.” (Huang H., Anchala K.R., Ellsbury D.L. & George C.S. 2009). Water is an essential component of life and it is a vital part of existence of living matter. Proper hydration of the human body is extremely essential for carrying out the normal bodily activities. Water in the human body is divided into proper compartments which chiefly include the intracellular fluid and the extracellular fluid. This extracellular volume comprises principally of fluid between the cells and the fluid that lies with the vascular compartment. Equilibrium between the water that is taken in and the water that is lost from the human body is very important. Water is lost from the body in the form of urine, feces, breathing and by the process of evaporation. This loss needs to be compensated for. The body performs its mechanisms which include hormonal stimulation and nervous signals which stimulate the thirst center and also the renal function of re-absorption of water is brought into action. This leads to the maintenance of balance between water taken in and lost. Any imbalance in this normal equilibrium can result in the condition which is known as dehydration. Dehydration is the state of the body in which there is decreased amount of

In order to meet these challenges new health sector programmes and reforms, as well as changes in the legislation, are carried out. One of the examples of recent innovations in health care systems is a substitution nurse practitioners (NPs) for general practitioners (GPs) (Dierick-van Daele, Spreeuwenberg, Derckx, Metsemakers & Vrijhoef, 2008).
Water is necessary for the maintenance of the body since it includes 20 minerals need as part of a healthy diet. The human body at birth is composed of 80% water, while full grown humans have a composition of approximately 70% water. Humans can drink up to 3 gallons or 48 eight ounce cups of water each day.
Water, dehydration and health during exercise
Dehydration can often occur suddenly and unexpectedly during exercise, and this theory and the mechanics of it have been studied extensively. Water is an essential and critical element often overlooked by athletes and novices alike, but dehydration can, will, and does have a major effect on the performance of exercise as well as the tolerability and enjoyment of the exercise.
Every cell in the body needs water to carry out a variety of essential functions.
Water is the main constituent that makes up more than two thirds of the bodyweight, and devoid of it, can cause death in a few days. The human brain contains up to of 95%
