Fluid and Electrolyte Problems

Electrolytes are vital minerals found in bodily fluid. Without proper hydration, the number of electrolytes in you or your child’s body can significantly decrease. Children are more likely to become dehydrated than adults because they have a faster metabolism and a smaller body mass. Significant dehydration can deprive vital organs of important fluids and electrolytes. As a result, these organs aren’t able to function properly, which can be life-threatening.
