A 38-year-old member asked:

is there a relation between dehydration and rbc count in urine?

Dr. Tarek Naguib

Usually no: However, if you have a few red cells in urine, a concentrated urine in dehydration will have less water and although the count of the cells being discharged has not changed, the count per a unit volume, eg cc or cmm, may increase. Normally ther should be no blood in urine. If you have blood in urine, confirmed by repeat, need to see a urologist.

A 46-year-old member asked:

Can I give my baby gatorade to treat dehydration?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Scott J. Wolfson
Pediatrics 22 years experience
No: For babies who need hydration support i recommend using pedialyte or a similar product. This is absorbed much more readily than gatorade which has a much higher sugar content.For older children i often recommend using gatorade or other sports drink to flavor the unflavored pedialyte if it makes it more tolerable to drink.

Most often: food!: The first thing that comes to mind, of course, is diabetes. But for many pregnant women, kidney function changes. Often, the same morning a pregnant women drinks a big glass of orange juice, we'll find sugar in her urine sample. However, that is not to say we ignore the findings -- all pregnant women do get tested for gestational diabetes between 24 and 28 weeks.

Dr. Nicholas Fogelson
Specializes in Gynecology
Drink water: Drink at least eight glasses a day of water. If your urine is dark colored, you need to drink more. If you have having enough nausea that you cannot drink much water, talk to your doctor about using some medicines to decrease your nausea. There are several that are safe in pregnancy. Drinking in small quantities many times a day is usually better than trying to drinks lots at once.
