Treating electrolyte imbalance isn't just for athletes.

Cyclist looking foward to replacing electrolytes naturally with IV hydrationYou’ve heard athletes and health enthusiasts talk about drinking sports drinks after a work out to replace their electrolytes. If you don’t exercise much, you might think you don’t need to worry about all that electrolyte business.

But you’d be wrong. Exercise is only one of the many ways your body can lose essential electrolytes. An electrolyte imbalance can lead to a variety of nasty symptoms, and usually, chugging a sports drink is not enough to fix the problem.

Although sports drinks are an excellent source of certain electrolytes, they only replace the electrolytes lost through sweat. Unlike electrolyte drinks, tablets, powder, or other solutions, IV electrolyte treatment provides maximum absorption of all the electrolytes you need and flushes out excess electrolytes to restore complete balance.

What are electrolytes?

Electrolytes are natural, electrically charged salts and minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, and chloride. They regulate important body functions, including fluid balance and muscle contraction. Sodium, potassium, and other electrolytes are essential for cells to function, to maintain cell wall stability, and to generate energy. So they’re pretty darn important, and an electrolyte imbalance can be dangerous.

Causes of Electrolyte Imbalance

 Electrolytes and proper hydration for athletes is extremely important, but you don't have to be an athlete to have an electrolyte imbalance. Hormones produced in the kidneys and adrenal glands control the electrolyte concentration in your body. Electrolyte loss can have a number of causes, including the following:

The symptoms of an electrolyte deficiency can vary widely depending on the underlying condition, which specific electrolytes are unbalanced, and whether the levels are high or low. Many common symptoms of electrolyte imbalance are also signs of dehydration:

It's important to maintain hydration during a marathon or stay hydrated on a bike ride to avoid dehydration. Severe dehydration can be life-threatening and should be treated immediately by a medical professional.

Doctors can measure your electrolyte levels with a blood test to diagnose your imbalance. Then our Fitness Recovery IV treatment can replenish low electrolytes or flush out excess electrolytes. Once your hydration and electrolyte balance have been restored, your doctor will treat the underlying cause to help prevent future imbalances.
