How do I know if I am dehydrated?

Are You Dehydrated?The best way to tell if you’re dehydrated is by looking at the colour of your urine. If your urine is a light shade of yellow, you’re fine. If it’s dark yellow and odorous, you need more water. Use our chart as a guide.

Symptoms of dehydration can include:

  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Moodswings and impatience
  • Dry skin
  • Thirst
  • Nausea
  • Headaches or migranes
  • Poor focus
  • Neck and back pain
  • Hunger
  • Cramps
  • Dark urine

Certain vitamins and some vegetables, like beetroot, can affect your urine colour, so take this into consideration.
