IV Hydration

Dehydration is a common condition that’s not always easy to recognize. As the medical and fitness communities learn more and more about the importance of hydrating, more people are becoming aware of the role it plays in sustaining a healthy lifestyle. For many people, though, just drinking water isn’t sufficient — at least not enough to reduce the symptoms quickly. That’s where IV hydration comes in, when it’s delivered by an experienced healthcare provider in a safe environment. Beat back dehydration following strenuous workouts or athletics by calling Vitality NP Family Health in NYC. Even seniors who find it difficult to get enough fluids enjoy the benefits of personalized IV hydration methods that can be supplemented with anti-aging liquid ingredients.

What Is IV Hydration?

Intravenous (IV) hydration delivers fluid directly into your vein. It’s the fastest way to get liquids into your body. IV therapy  is a common form of healthcare treatment; it’s both safe and effective when performed by a trained professional. The foundation of a typical IV hydration formula is a saline solution, which consists of sodium chloride and water. Your healthcare professional can choose a mixture of other fluid ingredients as well, depending on your needs, such as:

Why Is IV Hydration Necessary?

Dehydration can be a serious condition, and while drinking fluids can cure moderate cases, severe cases generally require IV hydration treatment. IVs get the proper fluids into your bloodstream as quickly as possible since it bypasses your gastrointestinal tract. Severe cases of dehydration have numerous symptoms, including:

  • Deep thirst
  • Dry mouth
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Infrequent urination
  • Dark urine
  • Fatigue

IV hydration is particularly useful for those recovering from bariatric surgery who can’t consume their necessary liquids orally. Svetlana takes bariatric patients through the pre-bariatric  and the post-bariatric  periods, often relying on liquid IV hydration as part of your treatment plan. She even can become your primary care provider during surgical recovery, since she provides continued weight-loss support including bariatric vitamins. 

Can Vitamin C Be Added to IV hydration in NYC?

Yes, definitely. Also referred to as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is always a possible ingredient for your IV hydration therapy. It’s an antioxidant that can help protect your cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin C is also necessary to help your body produce collagen, a protein that helps heal wounds. It also promotes the absorption of iron, which prevents anemia and aids your immune system.

IV hydration therapy can benefit you in several different ways. Ask Svetlana how IV hydration therapy can help you. Don’t hesitate to contact Vitality NP Family Health today.
