How Long Do IV Fluids Stay in Your Body?
Summer heat can be a pleasant reprieve from the cold winter weather but if you do overdo it, you may experience dehydration. A great way to counteract the effects of too much sun and not enough water is with IV fluids. Impact Medical Group of Clearwater shares the benefits of rehydrating with IV fluids and how long you can expect them to work for your body’s recovery.
Dehydration can happen when fluids in the body are lost quicker than they are received. A reduction of water can make it hard for the body to function properly. When this happens, symptoms like dry mouth, extreme thirst, dizziness, and dark urine can occur.
To combat this quickly, rehydrating treatments can make a huge difference. Rehydration is the intake of salts, fluids, and electrolytes by mouth or intravenous needle. When new fluids are introduced into the body through IV treatment, they can be extremely hydrating and valuable for health optimization. These fluids help nourish cells and deliver antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to the bloodstream. When properly hydrated, any excess fluids will be passed by the body.
Generally, IV fluids will remain in the body for several hours after absorption. If the patient is well hydrated but hasn’t urinated recently, fluids may even pass more quickly. The vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients from the IV treatment can remain in the body for days, weeks, or even months. It all depends on what the body needs and what type of treatment was received.
