What are the symptoms of dehydration?

Avoiding Dehydration

If you're feeling lethargic, dizzy, lightheaded, or have a headache, it might be that you aren't drinking enough water. These symptoms of dehydration can occur when your body is as little as 1 to 2 percent dehydrated. At this early stage of dehydration, you may not even feel the first twinges of thirst. The average person requires between 8 and 10 cups of water per day just to replace fluids lost by normal sedate activities. To enjoy the health benefits of water, drink it regularly throughout the day.
