Restitution of Water and Electrolyte Balance

When substantial sweat losses have been incurred, restitution of water balance requires both volume repletion and replacement of electrolyte losses. This can be achieved by ingestion of electrolyte-containing drinks or by ingestion of water and consumption of electrolyte-containing foods. Problems may occur when large sweat losses are replaced with electrolyte-free drinks. Hyponatremia and blood volume expansion ensue and will promote a diuresis that will prevent effective recovery.
