Dehydration is severe and affects the entire body. It may cause abrupt mental confusion, a drop in blood pressure, increased heart palpitations, angina (chest pain), coma and even death.

Story-1
Thought this might be of help to the oldies

By Arnaldo Liechtenstein, physician:


"Whenever, I teach clinical medicine to students in the fourth year of medicine, I ask the following question:

What are the causes of mental confusion in the elderly?"

Some answer: "Tumors in the head".
 I answer: No!
 Others suggest: "Early symptoms of Alzheimer's".
I answer again: No!

With each rejection of their answers, their responses dry up.

And they are even more open-mouthed, when I list the three most common causes:

uncontrolled diabetes
 urinary infection

dehydration

It may sound like a joke; but it isn't.

People over 60 generally stop feeling thirsty and consequently, stop drinking fluids.
When no one is around to remind them to drink fluids, they quickly dehydrate.

Dehydration is severe and affects the entire body.  It may cause abrupt mental confusion, a drop in blood pressure, increased heart palpitations, angina (chest pain), coma and even death.

This habit of forgetting to drink fluids, begins at age 60, when we have just over 50% of the water we should have in our bodies.

People over 60 have a lower water reserve. This is part of the natural aging process.

But there are more complications. Although they are dehydrated, they don't feel like drinking water, because their internal balance mechanisms don't work very well.”

Conclusion

People over 60 years old dehydrate easily, not only because they have a smaller water supply; but also because they do not feel the lack of water in the body.

Although people over 60 may look healthy, the performance of reactions and chemical functions can damage their entire body.

Alerts

Get into the habit of drinking liquids.  Liquids include water, juices, teas, coconut water, milk, soups, and water-rich fruits, such as watermelon, melon, peaches and pineapple;  Orange and tangerine also work.

The important thing is that, every two hours, you must drink some liquid.

Alert for family members: constantly offer fluids to people over 60.  At the same time, observe them.

If you realize that they are rejecting liquids and, from one day to the next, they are irritable, breathless or display a lack of attention, these are almost certainly recurrent symptoms of dehydration.

Story -2

A young Arab boy asks his dad "what are you wearing on your head?"

*The father said:* "Why, my son, it is a 'chechia.' In the desert it protects our heads from the intense heat of the sun.”

"And what is the long flowing robe you are wearing?” *asked the boy.*

“Oh, my son!” *exclaimed the father* “It is very simple. This is a 'djbellah.'

As I have told you, in the desert it is not only very hot, but the sand is always blowing. My djbellah protects my entire body."

*The son then asked:* "But Father, what about those ugly shoes you have on your feet?”

"These are 'babouches' my son,” the *father replied.*

You must understand that although the desert sands are very beautiful, they are also extremely hot.

These babouches keep us from burning our feet."

*Son asks* : "what is that black tent mom and sister are wearing ?"

*Father* : "It's called a burkha , it helps the hot desert sand from hitting the face and body during a sandstorm" .

"So tell me then," added the boy.

"Yes, my son…”

"Then,Why are we living in London and still wearing all this shit?” the young adult said.
