What happens to the body if you drink too little water

(ORDO NEWS) — Due to the lack of water in the body, some diseases can develop. Dr. Ayşegül Çoruhlu, a specialist in biochemistry and anti-aging medicine, emphasizes that due to lack of water, a person becomes more susceptible to various diseases.

In addition, the human body consists of 70 percent water. It is important for maintaining the health and proper functioning of many organs.

If the body does not receive water in the right amount, then the hormones vasopressin and angiotensin begin to be produced.

They act in such a way that water begins to be retained in the body, that is, the amount of urine and sodium (which is excreted along with urine) decreases, sweating decreases, and blood vessels narrow. As a result, a person’s blood pressure also rises.

In this case, the urine of a person acquires a darker color. Saliva also becomes less, so there is a feeling of dryness in the mouth, an unpleasant odor appears.

The skin becomes dry, and the person himself feels more and more tired. In addition, when the level of vasopressin increases, the level of the stress hormone cortisol also increases.

All this can lead to cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, diabetes, and excess weight. The body is more susceptible to infections and early aging.
