Nothing, there is no over hydration, as the kidneys will automatically excrete out any excessive fluid. A good output of urine is good indicator that the body is back to normal, however one should be very careful about K(potassium) loss and it much depends upon the i/v solution used.

Is it okay to consume alcohol after having an iv injection 36 hours ago? The iv was just for rehydration ( 1 liter of saline fluid) , I was exposed to a 24 hour GI stomach bug and was dehydrated because I wasn t able to consume anything due to the fact I would throw it up immediately afterwards. I am 21, 147lbs, and 5 6 with no severe medical history.

I am a 43 year old male. My entire life I have felt hot and I have always sweated profusely. The least little amount of activity can trigger sweating. Even when I go skiing and it's 20-degrees, I can only wear a single layer of clothing (short sleeve shirt). I tend to get dehydrated very quickly, so I have to drink water also continuously. In social settings, I tend to avoid activity in an effort to avoid getting hot and sweaty. Do I have Hyperthyroidism or some other condition? This constant condition can't be normal and it certainly prohibits me from living life to the fullest.
