Staying hydrated during exercise is one of the most important things you can do for your body. Not only do you have more energy when you're hydrated, your performance improves and your workouts feel better. If your body is short on fluids, performance suffers, you get tired faster and, in some circumstances, you can end up with cramps, heat exhaustion or other problems that may sideline you from exercise.
Exercise and Fluid Replacement Guidelines
The guidelines for fluid replacement have changed over the years as we've learned more about the body and how important water is to our health.
Each of us will have individual requirements when it comes to fluid replacement. We exercise differently, sweat differently and workout in different climates and environments but, guidelines, set out by the American College of Sports Medicine, can help you figure out how to stay hydrated:
Hydration Tips For Runners
Drink about 17 ounces of fluid 2 to 3 hours before exercise.
Drink about 8 to 10 ounces of water 10 to 20 minutes before exercise.
Drink about 8 to 10 ounces of water every 15 minutes or so during your workout. You may find sipping water throughout your workout works as well.
If you exercise for more than an hour, consider a sports drink. Learn more about the the best sports drinks
Continue drinking water after your workout to replace any fluids lost.
The Symptoms of Dehydration
Dehydration can lead to a number of problems when you're exercising including dizziness, fatigue, diarrhea, vomiting, heat exhaustion or, extreme cases, heat stroke. These symptoms may be a sign you're dehydrated:
Feeling dizzy or lightheaded
Very dark urine (when you're properly hydrated, your urine is light or clear)
An inability to urinate
If you do experience these symptoms, stop what you're doing and consider drinking a sports drink to help balance out your electrolytes.
The Symptoms of Hyponatremia
Some of us get so worried about dehydration, we end up drinking a little too much water, which can lead to water intoxication.
This happens when you lose too much salt through sweating, and, though you're replacing your fluids with water, you're not replacing the salt you've lost. While this is rare, it can be serious, leading to seizures, a coma or, in extreme cases, death. Some symptoms to watch out for include:
Confusion and slurred speech
You can treat hyponatremia by eating salty foods or drinking a sports drink that contains sodium.
Sir, I am suffering from stomach pain for last two weeks. This pain come suddenly in the day then after sometime it will vanished. Please sir give me argent comments. Thank you.
Sometimes, when it comes to problems in the abdominal area, an ultrasound is not clear enough for a diagnosis. In such cases, an Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) may be performed. This procedure gives the doctor a clear view of the duodenum, bile duct, pancreatic ducts, gallbladder and papilla of Vater.
This procedure is usually performed under intravenous sedation without general anesthesia. This procedure involves the use of a duodenoscope, which can be described as a thin, long, flexible tube with a camera at one end. It also has a fiber optic bundle that transmits lights to the camera and a chip to transmit video images to a TV screen.
This is inserted through the patient’s mouth and sent down the throat through the food pipe to the stomach and duodenum while the patient is lying on his or her back. The air pipe is left undisturbed so as to not interfere with the patient’s breathing. Since the patient is not under general anesthesia, he or she can move and turn according to the doctor’s needs. The papilla of Vater is a small nipple like structure with an opening to the bile duct and pancreatic duct. Once this has been identified, a small plastic catheter is passed through the duodenoscope into the bile duct or pancreatic duct through the papilla. Dye is then injected into the area and X-rays are taken of the bile ducts and pancreatic duct. In cases where a biopsy is needed, other instruments can also be passed through the endoscope. Plastic or metal stents can also be passed through this to relieve obstructions in the bile ducts and pancreatic ducts.
ERCP can be used to diagnose and treat a number of conditions in the liver, bile ducts, gall bladder, pancreas and papilla of Vater. These include:
• Blockage of the bile duct by gallstones, cancer, scars, tumors or compression from adjacent organs.
• Jaundice due to an obstructed bile duct. This can also cause light stools and dark urine.
• Persistent upper abdominal pain
• Unexplained weight loss and loss of appetite
• Diagnosing a Dysfunctioning Sphincter of Oddi within the Papilla of Vater
ERCP can also be used to confirm pancreatic cancer and cancer of the bile duct. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, the doctors can customize treatment according to the patient’s needs.
