Yes: Severe gastroenteritis can cause sudden loss of fluid and electrolytes.I had seen it with cholera but other infection can cause severe diarrhea. Yes, it can cause hypovolemic shock.

Drink proper liquid: You should always carry enough liquid with you. You have more risk of loosing electrolytes along with fluid in your sweat as you work outside.Consider drinking electrolyte solution like gatorade. Average person should drink 6-8 glasses/day but you may need 8-10 glasses if working outside.

Not that bad but not: Borderline elevation of liver enzymes can occur from several possibilities. If it is only slightly elevated, one should not be too nervous about it but should not ignore either.Best approach should be to repeat. If it is still elevated, one should consult a specialist.
