Keeping hydrated is important for replacing the electrolytes lost in perspiration. The elderly, babies, young children, pregnant and nursing mothers or people that are overweight are particularly vulnerable to dehydration in summer. Heat-related dehydration can also occur for people that are active with sports or extensive exercise in warm weather.

When the weather warms up many people take note to drink more water. While important, sometimes H20 is just not enough. When we sweat our bodies our body looses fluid and dehydration is caused when your body does not have as much fluids as it should. Dehydration can be mild, moderate, or severe based on how much of the body's fluid is lost or not replenished. It's not just about being hot and bothers, severe dehydration is a life-threatening emergency.
