    Dehydration means your body loses more fluids than you take in. If it's not treated, it can get worse and become a serious problem.

      The body's initial response to a loss of fluid is to preserve the amount of fluid still in the body by conserving water. This leads to various symptoms of dehydration including thirst and dry mouth, decreased urine output, muscle cramps, headache, lightheadedness, sleepiness and a lack of tear production.

        Becoming dehydrated can lead to: Bladder irritation and concentrated urine – not having enough fluid in your body will lead to concentrated urine, which can irritate the bladder and make you feel the urge to pass urine with urgency or more frequently or suffer from incontinence.

      Your body needs water for every function it performs. Dehydration is the term for your body's reaction when you don't drink enough water, resulting in a fluid deficiency. When left untreated, chronic dehydration has been linked to other health conditions like high blood pressure and kidney stones.
