Water Loss: Do you mean you don't sweat? Or do you mean your urinary output has decreased? If the latter, you may have an enlarging prostate that is causing urinary retention. I assume you are taking in adequate amounts of fluid and are not merely getting dehydrated. If it seems to be a urinary problem, make an appointment with a urologist and get yourself checked out.
