How do I know if I am dehydrated?

If you are mildly dehydrated, you might experience one or more of these
symptoms:

  • thirstiness
  • a dry mouth, lips and tongue
  • headache
  • have urine that is a darker yellow than usual, and less of it
  • light-headedness or dizziness.

If you are severely dehydrated, you might experience one or more of
these symptoms:

  • extreme thirstiness
  • have a very dry mouth, lips and tongue
  • crankiness
  • drowsiness
  • feel like you are breathing very quickly
  • have a fast heart rate
  • fainting
  • have very little or no urine.

If you weigh more than one kilogram less after exercising or working, you are likely to be dehydrated.
