Dehydration: warning signs of fluid deficiency

Depending on our age, our body consists of about 50 to 80 percent water and therefore needs a particularly large amount of fluid. Even a fluid loss of three percent can have a significant impact on a person’s physical and mental functioning. This shows what a crucial role water plays in our lives. Although our bodies send warning signals to us when we are dehydrated, these are not always easy to recognize.
