What is IV hydration?

IV hydration is a noninvasive treatment for dehydration, a condition in which your body lacks enough fluids and sometimes electrolytes (calcium, potassium, chloride, magnesium, sodium, etc.). Dehydration can cause fatigue and other unpleasant symptoms, and dangerous levels of severe dehydration. IV treatment infuses fluids and often nutrients directly into your blood.

What are the common signs of dehydration?

Some of the common signs and symptoms of dehydration include:

  • Dry mouth and tongue 
  • Sunken-in eyes or cheeks
  • Reduced urination
  • Extreme thirst
  • Fatigue
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness

Your symptoms may be mild to severe and even life-threatening. See your Complete Rural Medicine provider at the first sign of a problem.

Is IV hydration right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for IV hydration at Complete Rural Medicine, your specialist reviews your symptoms and medical history. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may order urine tests, blood tests, or other diagnostic procedures. Nearly everyone can benefit in some way from IV hydration. 

What should I expect during my treatment?

During IV hydration therapy at Complete Rural Medicine, you rest in a comfortable, reclining chair. You’re welcome to look at your phone, read a book, or simply relax. 

Your provider gently inserts a tiny needle into a vein in your arm to infuse fluids and often nutrients directly into your bloodstream for fast absorption. Each treatment might last 20-60 minutes, depending on your health and preferences.

Afterward, you may feel better and have more energy immediately, with continued improvements over time.

How often should I schedule IV hydration?

To reap the best results of IV therapy, your Complete Rural Medicine provider might suggest you schedule sessions monthly, weekly, several times a week, or any time you feel dehydrated. They tailor each treatment plan to match your needs and goals.
