Dehydration Dehydration happens for various reasons. Dehydration is due to loss of significant amounts of body water. To prevent dehydration one wants to make sure you have significant amount of body water. Feeling nausea, dizzy or light headed after or during exercising on a hot and summer day is a sign on dehydration. If one feels they are dehydrated a person needs to make sure they are drinking plenty of water, ice chips, Pedialyte, Gatorade, lemon lime soda, ginger ale, or popsicles. An important fact to remember is that over half of your body weight is water. Water is important in maintenaning body temperature. Water is actively involved in water regulation. Without the water in blood it would not be able to regulate body temperature by decreasing or increasing the amount of heat gone at the surface of the body. There are many functions of water in the body. For one water not only helps regulate body temperature but also functions in chemical reactions. Many people did not know that blood is mostly made up of water, blood flows through our bodies, which delivers nutrients and oxygen to cells and returns waste products to lungs and kidneys for flow. Is also important to remember that the cushioning effect of water in the amniotic sac helps guard the fetus as it grows inside a pregnant woman.
