I struggle with severe dehydration to the point where I get iv fluids 3 times a week. My doc recommended I add Celtic salt to my water. He said if there’s more salt in my blood stream than my cells the salt will go in my cells and the water will follow. I can’t get used to the taste of the salt in my water. Does anyone have any suggestions on other things I can add to mask the taste or how to adjust?

      You could also try just sucking on rock salt or otherwise just adding salt to your diet and drinking the water separately... Things like chips, jerky (homemade if necessary), etc... or maybe try drinking a hot cup of chicken broth in place of whatever hot beverage you're used to

      Thank you everyone! Adding citrus like lemon and lime juice has helped with the taste!!

      You can also look up recipes & make a big batch for a couple days or for the week of your own electrolyte mix with Celtic salt, sugar, and then some lemon or lime juice!

      LiquidIV is the best in my opinion

      I use Hydalyte and love it. No artificial sugars, flavors, or colors.

      I highly recommend sparkling water with some pure juice added to it, think lime, lemon, or orange. Though I imagine you could do some other, no added sugar juices like pomegranate or cherry.

      If you like coconut water have you tried body armor?

      I’ve tried coconut water it helps a little bit but I still end up dehydrated unfortunately just takes a little longer to get dehydrated after my iv fluids drinking coconut water than regular water but it’s so expensive I can’t drink it all the time

      Coconut water … I drink it at night and also if I get up in the middle of the night and in the morning. I drink water during the day. Get a high quality coconut water.

      I will def try the pickle juice, lemon and sparkling water. Liquid iv upsets my stomach unfortunately. The doc said the Celtic salt has more electrolytes than Himalayan salt and to stick with the Celtic.

      There’s a electrolyte powder pack called liquid I.V. It helps me when I get blood drawn because I have horrible veins and it’s better than Gatorade. You can also try Himalayan salt for the same thing it helps your body absorb water, it’s good to soak your feet in too.

      Sparkling water like la croix might be worth a shot. It takes some getting used to but it’s quite tasty after you’re used to it.

      I can’t drink anything with processed sugars or artificial colors like Gatorade or other sports drinks I could try sparkling water though

      Are you able to drink anything else besides water? Using Gatorade, body armors, even sparkling water would maybe help!
