When your body loses too much fluid and it is not quickly replaced, you can become dehydrated.

SIGNS OF DEHYDRATION

Dehydration occurs when your body does not receive the hydration necessary to function. This can be caused by illness, excessive vomiting and diarrhea, excessive sweating without replenishing, or from not consuming enough fluids. Regardless of the cause, University Urgent Care in Fort Worth, TX can help address the causes and symptoms of your dehydration. Our facility serves the Frisco Heights, Tanglewood, Paschal, and TCU neighborhoods with the care you need to get you refueled and on your way in no time.

Certain dehydration issues that fall outside the scope of our urgent care services may necessitate referral to an emergency room. If you are experiencing difficulties in breathing, uncontrolled bleeding, or chest pain unrelated to coughing, please call 9-1-1 immediately or seek care at an Emergency facility.

 WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF DEHYDRATION?

Severe dehydration can cause more serious health issues if left untreated. At times, mild symptoms may be treated from home with positive results. Pregnant women, infants, and the elderly should seek immediate medical attention if suspected to be dehydrated. Common dehydration symptoms include, but are not limited to:

  • Extreme thirst
  • Dry mouth
  • A swollen tongue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Exhaustion
  • Confusion
  • Decreased and/or dark-colored urine

HOW DO YOU TREAT DEHYDRATION?

If you begin to notice the above symptoms and believe that you may be dehydrated, you should cease activity and seek rest and shade immediately. If possible, we recommend drinking fluids high in electrolytes or water. If after a period of rest and rehydration your symptoms do not subside or become worse, we recommend you seek immediate medical attention. If you’re experiencing a combination of symptoms combined with chest pain, your condition should be treated as an emergency. Upon arrival to our facility, our skilled staff will quickly assess your symptoms, discuss your medical history, and determine the best course of action for your treatment.

HOW DO DOCTORS TREAT SEVERE DEHYDRATION?

If your condition appears to be severe, you will be instead be turned over to emergency care. If your symptoms are stable, our staff will begin dehydration treatment following a panel of tests. Our laboratory is state-of-the-art and features technology capable of producing results in as little as 15 minutes. After determining that there are no underlying serious medical conditions, we will begin treating you with intravenous rehydration fluids, the most common and successful option for dehydration. These intravenous fluids are a combination of sodium and chlorine which will replace the lost electrolytes. Depending on our lab findings, further treatment may be necessary.

CALL US TO FIX YOUR DEHYDRATION FAST

Hangovers are a symphony of unpleasant symptoms associated with the influx of toxic compounds that comes with drinking alcohol. The accumulated compounds cause inflammation, mess with your immune system and hormone balance, and upset your body in all kinds of other ways that aren’t even fully understood; scientists have spent years looking for a surefire cure for the common hangover, and they haven’t found a perfect one.

With that said, IV therapy uses modern science to help alleviate a hungover person’s nausea, headache, and dizziness by reversing the dehydration caused by drinking.

Here’s how it works: the primary ingredients are sugar, salt, and water. The water obviously rehydrates you while the sugar helps pull the salt into your body to replenish electrolytes that have been lost due to dehydration. Add a mild medication for nausea and viola! That’s it.

For ill effects associated with occasional alcohol consumption, University Urgent Care offers an IV hydration solution backed by advanced science. We don’t endorse heavy drinking or claim to cure hangovers, but our patients find confidence in having a trusted rehydration solution that works

Loss of body fluids from sickness, heat, or excessive activity is a common occurrence. However, when your body loses too much fluid and it is not quickly replaced, you can become dehydrated.

I was seen immediately and only stopped at the examination room to drop off my purse and followed the x-ray gal directly to the x-ray room, got the images, saw the P.A. who advised I go to ER hospital for a CAT scan. The P.A. provided paperwork for the hospital to get the preliminary x-ray results.

After attempting to find a dentist for 2 days I walked into this urgent care facility and they took awesome care of me. I had an abscess tooth, I got a pain shot and first dose of antibiotics there and prescription for more antibiotics and mouthwash. There was no wait really and the staff were all very friendly. It was an overall pleasant experience and made my horrible day a lot better.
