So, we recently talked about the symptoms that young healthy women experience because of dehydration, but what about the dehydration symptoms found in men?
The Difference Between Men and Women
The clinical trials that we mentioned in our last blog post were carried out on both men and women, but the results were published separately. Interestingly, the men in this fascinating study showed several similarities to the women’s study, but also a couple of surprising differences.
Just like in the women’s clinical test conditions, the men were young, healthy and fairly active. The test results of mildly dehydrated males were compared to the results of fully hydrated test subjects.
Tension and Anxiety?
Professor Lawrence Armstrong, the lead researcher in the study, reported that men experience the following symptoms because of slight dehydration:
- Difficulty in mental tasks
- Decreased mental vigilance
- Impaired working memory
These symptoms differ from the symptoms that were reported by the female test subjects, with only men reporting anxiety and tension. Men also didn’t experience the headaches and mood swings that their female counterparts did.
Why that is, and why we react in the way that we do to slight dehydration needs further study, according to the researchers.
“Even mild dehydration that can occur during the course of our ordinary daily activities can degrade how we are feeling – especially for women, who appear to be more susceptible to the adverse effects of low levels of dehydration than men.” – Harris Lieberman, Military Nutrition Division, U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine
