    Two drs told me that I was already dehydrated if my lips were dry or I felt I needed chapstick (or an equivalent product) on my lips to moisten them. I had already noticed that when my lips were dry, I had a bad habit of rubbing or picking at my lips to remove the dried skin.

    As soon as I have dry lips, I immediately drink a full glass of water as soon as possible. For the rest of the day, I drink extra water and/or some very diluted 100% fruit juice to get some nutrients. Usually, by the following day, my lips are naturally moist and I feel better rested with more energy.

    Also, for all my drinking water, I drink either spring water or purified/filtered water from a special tap attached to my kitchen sink. Even though I have a water softener for the entire house, I still have a special tap for purified filtered water that I use for drinking water and cooking water to ensure nothing unhealthy or unwanted ‘slips in’ undetected.

    NOTE: After significant research, I learned the Ozarka brand of bottled Spring Water is the best for mineral content, so I buy that to keep in the vehicles for quick availability on short-term and long-term travel.

    This rule of thumb for observing/feeling my lips for dehydration is more accurate and easier for me to determine almost immediately.

    I recommend anyone try this method if having difficulty or feeling unsure about determining whether he/she is dehydrated.

    I have chronic dehydration

    I have tried every way I can to get it under control and nothing works. I even go so far as to pass out with chest pains heart and pulse going spastic it is hard to deal with.

    I hope that you find a cure for it because I am worried about what the doctor says. He may have to put in a hydration port. For easy access when I am at the hospitals emergency room.

    Thank you for your suggestions I will try the lime water asap because that’s the only one I have not tried

    Thanks for this helpfull post. I feel that most people don’t even realize they have chronic dehydration. Lately it’s been hard for me to drink a lot of water, and I got my blood pressure taken and it was very low. I then was told it can be due to dehydration and not drinking a lot of water. I’ve noticed my lips and skin are really dry, and for months every time I would sit up I would feel dizzy and like I was about to pass out. but after this post I know how to reverse this.

    I have a hard time drinking really cold water. I drink my water at room temperature and it goes down smooth.

    I have tried everything and all of theses to cure my dehydration. Nothing is working. Water, seas salt, essential oils, Epsom salt baths, lemon water, lime water, ugh….. Very low blood pressure too.

    I have had chronic dehydration with accompanying symptoms all my life. I am now 70 and just now learning ways to address the problem. I have been told my cells do not absorb hydration well, and my drinking LOTS of filtered water doesn’t seem to hydrate me. I will try these other suggestions (some of which I have already tried) but I will add that my chiropractor has encouraged me to add Himalayan pink salt to my water because it has so many minerals. I have not done this consistently so I haven’t been able to tell if it helps or not. My main problem right now is muscle cramps which hit in various parts of my body at various times which seem to be connected to nothing. Not exertion. Not overexertion. I can have a debilitating series of cramps around my chest wall while lying in bed at night. I have had electrolytes checked and am told I have no deficiency. I am still searching for the cause but I do believe that dehydration is involved.

    Himalayan pink salt is a great idea! Have you tried magnesium for your muscle cramps? There is a topical form you can apply or take a magnesium glycinate supplement.

    The brain is actually only about 75% water and coconut water was only used as an iv rehydration solution for one patient in the Solomon Islands, not for blood transfusion. Your repeating of unresearched facts and lack of fact checking makes your entire article unreliable.

    I am diabetic and suffer from chronic dehydration. I am always extremely fatigued and cannot function. If I drink to much water. I get even more dehydrated because it seems to flush out the minerals in my body. I take magnesium only. What else should I try. Thank you

    I believe it’s also effecting my memory and hair loss.
    Thank you
