Did You Know That Alcohol Causes Dehydration?


For every shot of alcohol you drink, you lose an extra 4 ounces of fluid on top of your normal urine output. Alcohol does this by interfering with ADH, the hormone that regulates your kidneys. Alcohol basically forces your kidneys to put out more urine. That's why after a night of drinking you are so dehydrated. To prevent this, always drink water when you are enjoying a night out on the town and also when you get home. This can help compensate for alcohol's effects on your kidneys. Water is the key to keeping you hydrated and feeling good after a fun night out.
