dehydration

I ended up taking Patrick to the emergency room at our small local hospital yesterday. He hadn't eaten since the previous evening and was vomiting up water all day. I can't for the life of me figure out how he got dehydrated. He normally drinks lots of water and we try and make sure he doesn't get too much mid-day sun. In the end they couldn't know for sure if he had a virus or sun/heat stroke.

He's fine, they kept him for observation and hydration for a few hours but then they sent us home with warning signs to watch for. They were so good to him and he responded well to them. I wasn't sure when we checked in if I should mention autism (I'm new at this and never know if I should say or not). I did decide to tell them and also warned them that he had vomited up his seizure meds at least twice.

When we left I mentioned to the doc that I felt kinda silly in retrospect bringing him in since I could have just watched him closely myself (I couldn't get a hold of my ped and there aren't any clinics out here). He said NO, I was right to bring him in and he would have brought his child in if he was having the same symptoms. The biggest worry was that he was lathargic and that always scares me.

Drinking enough water does not guarantee we will not become dehydrated. Fenestra Research studied 40,000 clinical study participants over a span of 7 years which revealed a shocking 94% of them dehydrated despite drinking enough water. Why? Because water in its present state (irrelevant of its origin or cost) is not absorbable by our bodies. You can read about this hydration dilemma as well as the natural, clinically proven solution.
