Dehydration Avoidance: Proper Hydration: When to Call the Doctor
When should I call the doctor if I suspect someone is dehydrated?
Signs of dehydration
If you suspect that someone is dehydrated, seek immediate medical attention.
Signs of dehydration include:
- Loss of appetite
- Flushed skin
- Heat intolerance
- Dark-colored urine
- Dry cough
The best way to beat dehydration is to drink before you get thirsty. If you wait until after you're thirsty, you're already dehydrated.
