Combat Severe Dehydration with IV Hydration Therapy
When you are dehydrated, most of the time drinking water or an electrolyte drink will restore
your energy level. However, severe dehydration can cause headaches, increased heart rate,
dizziness, confusion, fever and a host of other symptoms. In fact, you can even experience a
seizure due to extreme dehydration.
In these extreme cases, IV hydration therapy is the quickest and best option to restore a
customized cocktail of glucose and/or electrolytes directly into your bloodstream.
How IV Hydration Therapy Works
At MedEye Aesthetic Center, we offer IV hydration therapy. This process involves inserting an IV
line into a vein in your arm through which fluids are administered. We will take into consideration
your age, weight, height, medical history, severity of dehydration and other factors to determine
which types of fluids you will need to feel better as quickly as possible. As the fluids move
through your system, toxins are flushed away. In contrast to ingesting an abundance of fluids
orally, this process will not overwhelm your digestive system.
Fluids Typically Included in IV Hydration Therapy
In addition to glucose, your bag of fluids may include electrolytes such as sodium, magnesium,
potassium, calcium, bicarbonate, chloride or phosphate. These fluids help regulate your body’s
pH levels and keep your body’s nervous systema and muscles functioning properly.
Side Effects of IV Hydration Therapy
It is possible for you to experience an infection at the injection site. However, having this
treatment done by our professional team will reduce the risk of other complications such as
improper insertion of the IV line.
