Are You Dehydrated? Signs You're Not Drinking Enough Water
Many of us have been told to drink between 6-8 glasses of water a day, but when I ask patients about their water intake, I am told 2 cups is the daily average. Generally, males need to consume 3 liters (12 cups) per day and females need to consume 2.2 liters (9 cups) per day for optimal hydration. Failing to consume the recommended amount can lead to mild dehydration manifesting in multiple symptoms.
