Hydration Test Kit
Hydration is important for everyone from a health standpoint. Having enough water helps to regulate body temperature as well as lubricate the joints in the body for optimal, pain-free movement – among many other physical and mental benefits. A lack of hydration can lead to lethargy, dizziness, cramps, and in some cases even shock.
Though in many cases a person can gauge their hydration level from the colour of their urine (yellow means a lack of hydration, while clear urine points to sufficiently hydrated), for more advanced information on hydration levels, a professional test kit might be required. At Corporate Health & Safety, we stock hydration urine test strips that can be used to accurately quantify a person’s level of hydration.
Detect Dehydration Before it’s Too Late
A hydration test kit from CH&S can help identify when an individual is dehydrated or becoming dehydrated. When a person does not drink enough water or loses large amounts of fluids because of diarrhoea, vomiting, sweating or strenuous exercise, dehydration can occur. When the body becomes dehydrated, it reabsorbs fluid from the blood and other body tissues. If a person is severely dehydrated, there is no longer enough fluid in the body to get blood to the vital organs and the person may begin to go into shock. Severe dehydration and shock are life threatening.
