Flu Season Arrives

The Center for Disease Control reports a jump in flu cases in recent weeks, and they are recommending that all Americans take the necessary precautions.

Fifty-seven-percent of doctors surveyed consider dehydration to be the single most dangerous flu side effect, even above fever.

Dehydration is dangerous because the body is deprived of critical salts and fluids, which can lead to heart or kidney failure.

To treat dehydration when suffering from the flu, patients are advised to consistently drink plenty of fluids and take over-the-counter cold and flu relief medications.
