Most of us swear we are going to start drinking more water, but do we really? As we age, our bodies are more vulnerable to dehydration and it often goes unnoticed in older individuals due to a diminished sense of thirst. Proper hydration for healthy aging and function is essential. Yet most of us are dehydrated.
Host Lauren Dimet Waters talks with Dr. Kelly Halderman, Chief Health Officer Of Weo – a conscientious health tech company that’s revolutionizing the way the world drinks water. Kelly addresses the role hydration plays in aging; the damaging effects dehydration has on the body; how your hydration needs change as you age; how much water you should be drinking in midlife; how to tell if you are dehydrated and how you can detect dehydration in older individuals like your parents.
