Can Dehydration Cause Vomiting?
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
Vomiting is a normal body response that functions to excrete the contents of the digestive tract (especially the upper part, such as the esophagus and stomach) when it contains something that is considered inappropriate or dangerous by the body. In addition, vomiting can also be a result of stimulation of the nervous system due to a particular disease, such as stomach, liver, bile, intestinal, etc. Generally, vomiting is not caused by dehydration, but on the contrary dehydration is most often caused by a large amount of fluid loss when vomiting.
On the other hand, it is true that some of the most common and easily assessed signs of dehydration are changes in urine color and frequency of BAK, and the appearance of dizziness symptoms (especially when changes in position), pale, visual disturbances, fatigue, palpitations.
Some things you can try to do at home include:
Continuing a regular diet, by avoiding foods that can irritate the digestive tract, such as spicy or acidic food Trying to meet the needs of fluids in adults (about 2 L per day), by drinking a little, for example one glass in the morning when wake up, one glass between breakfast and lunch, one glass at lunch, etc. You can also create schedules and reminders (alarms) when it's time to drink, at first it will feel difficult, but will slowly get used to it. In principle, all types of liquids can be counted, therefore juices, milk, and broth are also a source of fluid, as well as fruits that are rich in fiber and liquid, such as watermelon, papaya, etc. To get used to it, you can work on this gradually, by increasing the target for every day or every week, to reach the 2 L target, or by measuring urine color changes and improving symptoms. Regulate a healthy lifestyle, with adequate rest, avoid smoking and alcohol consumption When feeling dizzy, don't move or change position suddenly and quickly, but try slowly and gradually (for example from sleeping to sitting, or sitting to standing) in on the other hand, if your symptoms of vomiting are frequent, do not work with heartburn, or are accompanied by additional symptoms such as abdominal pain, fever, heartburn, stool discoloration (red or black), diarrhea, or constipation, do not hesitate to consult a general practitioner or a specialist in internal medicine, so that a more complete examination can be done to determine the cause of your symptoms, such as physical examinations, blood laboratory tests, urine tests, radiological examinations, etc., as well as if necessary handling corresponding.
Thus, hopefully it can be useful.
