In brief: Desire to drink

Dehydration is a condition of loss of body water. Anemia is a condition of loss of body blood.
The body responds to dehydration with a sense of thirst. Your mouth feels dry, lips crack, skin is dry and stiff, and no urine output. Anemia causes a sense of weakness, pale appearance, and light headed when standing. Acute blood loss can lower blood pressure and cause poor function of the brain.
