Fluorouracil Dehydration Causes and Reviews


When you're dehydrated, your body doesn't have enough fluid and electrolytes to work properly. An average person on an average day needs about 3 quarts of water. But if you're out in the hot sun or are exercising a lot, you need a lot more than that. You can also become dehydrated if you are vomiting, have diarrhea, or are sweating a lot. People who are elderly, very young, taking certain medications, or have a chronic illness have a greater risk.

Signs of Dehydration in adults include

  • Being thirsty
  • Urinating less often than usual
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Dry skin
  • Feeling tired
  • Dizziness and fainting

Signs of Dehydration in babies and young children include a dry mouth and tongue, crying without tears, no wet diapers for 3 hours or more, a high fever and being unusually sleepy or drowsy.

If you think you're dehydrated, drink small amounts of water over a period of time. Drinking too much all at once can overload your stomach and make you throw up. If you are exercising in the heat and losing a lot of minerals in sweat, sports drinks can be helpful. Avoid any drinks that have caffeine.

Fluorouracil Dehydration Reviews

The side effects of Fluorouracil are most likely to be minor and temporary.InternationalDrugMart

Fri, 20 May 2011

its not 1%---more like 14% and that may even be a conservative estimate--Your doctor is lieing to you--surprised???

Sun, 13 Mar 2011

My fiancee passed away on 3/7/2011 after her second round of 5FU. The oncologist had used the words "surprised" and "out of the ordinary" on her reaction to the first round because of the amount and severity of her side effects. He still gave her the same dosage for the second round. Ten days later, she was in ICU. Seven days after going to the hospital, she was dead. She was 47 and in incredible shape except for the colon cancer. The doctor told us that she was part of the 1% of the population that didn't have the enzyme to metabolize the 5FU but she wasn't given the test because of the low percentage. With that decision, the woman I loved is no longer here.Her name was Birgit.
