Keeping hydrated is especially important for people with MS because some treatments can cause side effects, increasing the risk of dehydration.
Symptoms such as a dry mouth, tiredness, irritability, constipation, decreased urination, and dry skin may indicate dehydration, indicating the need to increase the fluid intake.
If you find plain fluids are less tolerable, replace them with foods with high water content, such as fruits, vegetables, chunky soups or yogurt, or suck on popsicles and try to avoid foods that contribute to dehydration.
Consulting a registered dietitian or your doctor can help guide you on the amount of water you should be drinking according to your health and treatment plan.
