What is Dehydration?

Dehydration is defined as the excessive loss of body fluid.

The main reason for dehydration at Optimum Health is a lack of water consumption. Therefore, we like to think of dehydration as having less body fluid than you should due to lack of water consumption.  Since dehydration can also be due to a loss of body fluid, we must consider this option as well.
