Am I dehydrated ?



Recommended Posts

Hi. I don’t know if I’m dehydrated . I usually have bladder control problems

but at the moment not passing much urine , and have stomach ache and not feeling very well . Its not such a nuisance ! but I’m not sure it’s good either . Does anyone else have this ?

Try to drink more Water and electrolyte beverages then check your urine color (the lighter the better)

Good Luck 💜

I agree with the post above..try liquid with electrolytes and sip, sip, sip. I would also call my Dr office if it concerned me just to make sure it’s not something else.

Thank you Greentea. My urine is dark greeny brown ! 😳I THINK it could be one of my tablets , which is also that colour . Does milk count as a liquid to help with dehydration ?

No if your urine is that dark... Light & clear fluids for a while like:

But please reach out to your team immediately

Normal for some people maybe

BUT

This may all be related to dehydration... but no one on here can diagnose you. Please email call your surgeons office immediately (if you can) and tell them everything

what’s liquid with electrolytes?

Vitamin Water zero, Gatorade zero, some types of regular bottled water, Propel Fitness water. Be sure to check the labels for sugar content as some are lower than others.

Thank you MeepMeep. Have just ordered some. I think we have different names for things here, I’m in the U.K. Are you in the U.S. ?

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
