Dehydration and Parkinson’s Disease

Via July 2022 Newsletter


Dehydration occurs when you use or lose more fluid than you

take in, and your body doesn't have enough water and other

fluids to carry out its normal functions. If you don't replace lost

fluids, you will get dehydrated.



Dehydration can lead to:

  • Low blood pressure

  • Heat Exhaustion

  • Heat Stroke

  • Urinary and Kidney problems

  • Seizures

  • Low oxygen levels


Parkinson’s medicines can also raise dehydration risk, which

can lead to:

  • Confusion

  • Weakness

  • Balance problems

  • Respiratory failure

  • Kidney problems


Work toward drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid daily to stay hydrated.
