THIS Is What Happens When You Run Out of Electrolytes (NOT GOOD)

Electrolytes are present in the bodily fluids throughout your body including your blood, urine, and sweat. They are so called because they have an actual electric charge and separate into either negatively or positively charged ions if they are dissolved on contact with water. This is an important factor because of the way your nerve reactions occur. They signal each other through a chemical exchange process that relies on ions being charged the opposite way both within and outside the cells.
An imbalance in your electrolytes can occur for a variety of reasons. These include chronic disease, shorter term illnesses, certain medications, and dehydration. Many of the causes of an electrolyte deficiency are caused by fluid loss. This can occur for a number of different reasons including the following:
Sicknesses that cause diarrhea, fever, sweating, and vomiting may result in your body becoming dehydrated.
Poor quality diets lacking in essential nutrients.
Certain medications including those prescribed for heart disease, cancer or hormonal issues.
