The Role of Hydration in Managing Hypertension and Diabetes

Workplace hazards vary across different industries and types of jobs. There is one, however, that can be present in any setting, regardless of the work being performed: dehydration. While dehydration can occur from clinical causes such as vomiting and diarrhea, perspiration is the most common cause of dehydration in the workplace. Workers who don’t drink enough fluids to compensate for this loss will become dehydrated.

Dehydration encourages the body to retain more sodium, which in turn can increase an individual’s blood pressure. It follows that drinking more water will encourage the body to eliminate more of the sodium through perspiration, thus contributing to lowering the blood pressure. For hypertensive employees, drinking an appropriate rotation of water might provide not only some much needed hydration, but also a decrease in blood pressure.
