In brief: Dehydration

Dehydration is treated with fluids, which can given either by mouth or intravenously, depending on how dehydrated the patient is.
How low one's creatinine (c) falls after hydration depends on what the person's baseline c was. Normally, the greater the serum sodium and creatinine are the greater the percentage fall in both after fluids are given. If dehydration is severe, a person is hospitalized.
