Do Not Want: Evening Light-headedness|
nod, ok, I'll try that. I know sometimes if I get dehydrated and don't eat, water just starts running through me and definitely leaves me worse off until I eat something. This might be related.
Yes, "running through me" is a perfect way to put it. Your body needs the electrolytes to absorb. So if the balance is off, your body can't absorb the Gatorade.
On another note, my mom eats low-sodium, and my dad used to eat that way with her. Then he got terrible leg cramps. Doctor said it was sodium deficiency(?) I forget... Anyway, doc told him to eat salty lunch meat on his sandwiches. That was plenty to fix him up.

Yeah, a lot of people don't realize that low sodium diets are for people who have a defined problem with sodium like high blood pressure. For many of us it's a necessary nutrient. (Within reason, as will all things!)
I meant, can't absorb the water. I don't know why I said Gatorade. :)
Gatorade is easier to absorb when you are dehydrated. There.
