Dylan is working a construction crew in the summer, in Texas. She works a 6 hour shift in the afternoon. She also goes for a 5-6 mile run about 6:30 PM every day. She drinks several gallons of water every day.
Does this sound like an appropriate amount of water? Too much? Too little? Elaborate on your reasoning. Be sure to take into context other factors in the environment as a part of your response.
Discuss her water gains and losses. What are the processes by which this occurs?
What do water and electrolytes do for our bodies? How does Dylan’s water intake impact her body?
Discuss the symptoms of dehydration and hyponatremia? Which, if either, do you think she is in danger of?
What would you recommend for her to remain healthy as she works through the summer as a member of her construction crew?
