5x why you are (possibly) dehydrated, even though you do drink a lot of water

3. You have diabetes

“Excessive thirst accompanied by dehydration can be a symptom of undiagnosed diabetes,” says dietician Summer Yule. Your body is trying to discharge sugar at that moment, so you have to urinate a lot, which can cause you to get dehydrated.

4. You’re drinking the wrong thing

If you’re drinking, it’ll be fine, won’t it? Unfortunately, some drinks actually cause you to get dehydrated. Drinks that contain caffeine, such as cola and coffee, are examples of this. Try not to drink too many caffeinated drinks.

5. You don’t drink enough water

Drinking two litres of water should usually be enough to prevent you from getting dehydrated. Yet some people need more water than that. For example, someone who does a lot of exercising may need to drink half a litre water more.

Do you think that one of the symptoms mentioned above applies to you? Or do you feel that you are dehydrated and you really don’t know how that is possible? Then we recommend consulting your doctor for advice.
