Treatment for Aging
As kind of a cruel joke, as your body begins to age it loses the ability to conserve water but also our sensation for thirst declines.
Yes, it’s easier to become dehydrated and it gets harder to tell when your fluids are depleted!
A continuous, healthy regimen of IV hydration therapy can help take some of the guess work out of it to avoid any additional health issues.
How Vida-Flo Works
Thirst sometimes is not a good gauge of how much water your body needs, especially for older adults.
A better way to check is to look at the color of your urine: clear or light-colored urine means you’re getting enough water, and dark yellow urine may mean you’re dehydrated. One 1000 mL bag of saline and electrolytes (also called a Lactated Ringer) is equivalent to drinking 2.5 gallons of water and is the fastest, most efficient way to battle dehydration. Under the experienced medical supervision of our RN Hydrocare Providers, we can help older patients counteract the debilitating and serious health issue of dehydration.
