Fluid and Electrolytes
Fluid is the water or liquid aspect of the body and electrolytes are the different elements like sodium, potassium, calcium, iron, and magnesium found in the fluid and the different cells in the human body.
Fluid and electrolytes are needed to facilitate every basic function of the human body. The body needs a specific percentage of fluid and electrolyte to function properly. Muscle movement, eating and digestion, the heart beat and the process of how nutrients are transported to the organs and cells in the body is facilitated by fluid and electrolytes.
A lack of the fluid and electrolyte in specific proportion can be dangerous and sometimes fatal. There are instances and occasions when the body can lose a significant amount of fluid and electrolyte and there are times when people are unable to replace their daily intake of fluid and electrolytes through eating and drinking. In most cases, illnesses that can cause people to vomit or have diarrhea can lead to the loss of fluids and electrolytes which ultimately leads to health deterioration and lesser quality of life. This is because illnesses or conditions that are associated with the loss of appetite or affect our ability to eat and drink can lead to fluid and electrolyte imbalance.
Some conditions related to fluid and electrolytes imbalance will lead to hospitalization but other times the medical doctor may just want the fluid and electrolyte replacement to be done in the home. In which case, Abide Health Solution LLC will provide you with the nurse and health care staff who will administer the Fluid and Electrolytes replacement through Infusion Therapy at home.
