DEHYDRATION IN SENIORS: AN OFTEN-OVERLOOKED HEALTH RISK
Dehydration is dangerous for senior health
Drinking enough water is important for everyone, but especially for older adults who are at greater risk for dehydration.
A UCLA study found that 40% of seniors may be chronically under-hydrated.
That can easily lead to dehydration and cause a variety of serious health problems, including urinary tract infections (UTI), falls, kidney stones, and more.
And, adults age 65 and up have the highest hospital admission rates for dehydration.
