Water is one of the things your body needs most to get healthy and stay healthy. Watch for signs that you need water. Thirst is the first sign, but as you age you may not feel thirst, so getting enough water is very important for older people. Additional symptoms of dehydration may include dry mouth, headache, and fatigue. Your body gets warmer, your breathing gets faster and your pulse rate goes up. Without enough water, you don’t have enough blood volume, so you feel tired, you’re not hungry, and you may feel nauseous. Your thinking becomes confused or fuzzy. You may not be able to think straight. You may feel dizzy and weak as your need for water becomes more severe. Every cell in your body needs water to do its work.
