How To Tell If You're Dehydrated

We've got a few more weeks of summer heat ahead, so it's important to know the signs of dehydration.

Early signs include:

  • dry mouth or cracked lips
  • headaches
  • dizziness
  • fatigue
  • dark-colored urine

These symptoms are much more severe, and require immediate medical attention:

  • abnormal breathing
  • fast pulse
  • low blood pressure
  • lethargy

The CDC recommends drinking 8 ounces of water every 15-20 minutes that you're outside in the heat. And remember, it's best to drink water before you feel thirsty.
