What are the symptoms of dehydration?


Dehydration or baby dehydration causes the body to take lot of water with decreased urine output to conserve the water loss. As a result, the urine will ultimately become yellow and concentrated. As the loss of water from the body increases, there will be more symptoms of dehydration. Some of the signs of dehydration are:

  • Eyes do not make tears
  • There will be no sweating
  • Muscle cramps
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Heart palpitation
  • Lightheadedness while standing
  • Dry mouth

Body tries to compensate the loss of water from intravascular space. This is done by increasing the heart rate due to which blood vessels become constricted and blood pressure is maintained. Severe dehydration in dehydration causes weakness and confusion since all other body organs will receive less amount of blood. Final consequences will be organ failure and coma, which can also cause death in severe cases if dehydration treatment is not maintained in clinical trials.
