It is a Friday night or a random weekday night, and your friends want to party. One of you is having a birthday, and after a long day’s work, you all end up at a friend’s house for a night of laughter and food. However, after a few hours, you are all in agreement that something is missing.
Yes, the board games are on fire but a little liquid courage would make them more exciting. Plus, all these stories do not seem to help you unwind. Within a couple of minutes of helping with the dishes, you are all bundled up in a cab and are off to the club.
You tell yourself you will have discipline and only have a drink or two.
Fast forward to 3.00am, and you have had endless trips to the bathroom, and you now feel sick. You go home, but you are sure you will regret this in the morning. And you are right; you wake with a massive hangover due to dehydration.
But why does alcohol worsen dehydration?
Dehydration mostly occurs when your body is losing more water than you are taking. When you drink alcohol, the following things happen that cause you to be more dehydrated than when you don’t drink.
The body produces a hormone called anti-diuretic hormone. The hormone is vital for the body to reabsorb water.
Alcohol is a diuretic substance which counters the production of the antidiuretic hormone and consequently deters the reabsorption of water. This is why you urinate a lot when you drink alcohol.
The constant urination ultimately causes the body to lose more water than it should, and you end up a dehydrated mess.
One of the symptoms of dehydration is nausea when you drink heavily; it may lead to throwing up which like urination leads to excess expulsion of fluids from the body. This is also a contributing faster to dehydration.
What are the symptoms of dehydration?

Some of these symptoms include:
- A dry mouth
- Reduced urination
