Does anyone have problems with dehydration? I literally drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. I do not drink any other liquids except that new mineral water. I drink alcohol one-two nights out of the week. With all that said, I get dehydrated an awful lot. I spent four hours last Saturday at the emergency clinic getting two bags of fluid pumped into me because I was so dehydrated. I don't understand why I could be so dehydrated when I drink so much water.

Have they checked you for diabetes or kidney problems? Have you brought this up with your doctor?

I have the same problem and have had many visits to the emergency room. I put a little shake of salt in my water to add electrolytes. Or you could drink Gatorade, Propel, or something else that has electrolytes. Even pouring a little fruit juice in my water helps, but as much as I drink, I can't drink enough if it's plain water. I have had this problem for as long as I can remember and drink at least two quarts of water a day.

I have been checked for diabetes, but not kidney problems.

is it possible that you are either getting a bit of gluten in your diet (i get horribly dehydrated when i do), or that your mineral water has sodium? i drink copious amounts of water, anyway, but just to make sure.

My dehydration gets worse when I get glutened, but I have to watch it all the time.

It seems that I stay dehydrated all the time. I can go into the ER and get an IV and about a day after that, BOOM...dehydration again. I drink water all the time. If I have a drink of alcohol or Dr. Pepper, it's all downhill from there.

you should drink something with electrolytes in it because that should help the dehydration more than just plain water, that is what seems to help me when i get dehydrated.

I don't know if I'm actually dehydrated, but my lips are almost always dry. (Not chapped or red, just dry) I know I don't drink enough water :ph34r: When glutened, it gets worse.

I have always suffered from dehydration problems. I had to go to the E.R. for the first time when I was 8 years old. I have been on a gluten free diet since I was 13, and yes I still suffer from dehydration especially if I get glutened. It used to be a guaranteed trip to the E.R. I would get both ends going and it wouldn't stop. Since I started going to accupuncture, I have had no major problems when I accidently got glutened. I have always drank gatorade. I can now drink just plain water. (Before it went straight thru me).

The thing is when I go to the emergency room for dehydration they test my electrolytes and they are perfect. I do drink Gaterorade time to time, especially if I am working out. I have been checked for diabetes as well and it came back negative. I also have been checked for kidney problems and that came back fine too.

Natural coconut water can be excellent for hydration. You can drink it straight out of a coconut (if you can find one) or you can buy it at some health food stores.

Other than that, I'm not sure. I hate it when they test you for everything and say it's all normal, when clearly there's a problem. :( I hope you find your answer soon.

Thanks so much for your response. I was doing accupressure and that seemed to work but that got so expensive. I am going to try accupuncture and start drinking more gatorade. Thanks.

Whenever I'm dehydrated, I drink Pedalyte or Gatorade, because they help replace electrolytes.

Isnt this interesting. I was going to post about this but figured it was just me.
Ive always had a problem with dehydration also. Cant tell u how many times I had to go to the hospital when I was pregnant because of dehydration-which would induce contractions.
Still, no matter how much i drink (and i really hate water..but force myself).., I still tend to get dehydrated and get headaches from it. I avoid all alcohol now, too. Im hoping the longer Im on the diet the better all my weird little symptons will be.
I dont know how long you've been gluten-free but could it be if your intestines are damaged, as I know mine are, that we're just not absorbing water as well, also? Does that make sense?
