Did You Realize Even Mild Depression Can Be Lack Of Water?

Keith Scott-Mumby

Even mild dehydration may affect our moods and ability to concentrate. In a new study of 25 healthy women, mild dehydration dampened moods, increased fatigue, and led to headaches. The women in the study had an average age of 23. They were not superbly fit, nor couch potatoes. Each woman was tested after treadmill exercise and again after treadmill exercise plus a diuretic pill, which was designed to force dehydration (urine loss). The women were given a battery of tests measuring their concentration, memory, and mood when they were dehydrated and when they were not. Overall, women’s mental ability was not affected by mild dehydration. But they did feel the tasks were more difficult. They reported more fatigue and felt down. This was similar to earlier results from the same researchers in a dehydration study on men.
