IV Hydration Q & A

What is IV hydration?

IV hydration at Premier Physician Health Associates consists of fluids and often nutrients infused into your bloodstream via one of your veins. It’s highly effective for fast absorption, reducing troublesome symptoms of dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. 

Your infusion might contain water, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, amino acids, or other nutrients. Premier PhysicianHealth Associates customizes each IV hydration treatment to match your needs.

What are the advantages of IV hydration?

The benefits of receiving IV hydration therapy at Premier Physician Health Associates include:

  • More energy
  • Less fatigue
  • Fewer nutrient deficiencies
  • Reduced pain
  • Stronger immune system
  • Better overall health 
  • Improved quality of life

IV hydration can help you feel better and look healthier, with a lower risk of medical problems. 

Who benefits from IV hydration?

Nearly everyone can benefit from IV hydration, as many people are chronically dehydrated. Symptoms of dehydration include:

  • Bright yellow or dark-colored urine
  • Infrequent urination
  • Dry mouth
  • Feeling thirsty
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness

Drinking a lot of water and consuming foods or drinks containing electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium, reduces your risk of dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. 

You might become dehydrated because of hot weather exposure, not drinking enough fluids, or sweating a lot during exercise. 

Is IV hydration right for me?

Dr. Ott discusses your medical history, lifestyle habits, and symptoms to determine if IV hydration therapy is for you. He checks your vital signs, completes a physical exam, and often orders blood or urine tests to determine which IV hydration treatment best suits you.

What happens during IV hydration?

During IV hydration therapy, you rest in a comfortable chair. Dr. Ott inserts a very fine needle into a vein, usually in your arm, to infuse fluids and nutrients into your bloodstream. Depending on your unique needs, your treatment might last 20-45 minutes or longer.

How often do I need IV hydration therapy?

After you undergo IV hydration therapy, you may feel better right away with continued improvements over time. Dr. Ott lets you know when to schedule your next IV hydration therapy session. You might benefit from IV therapy several times a week, once weekly, or as needed to maintain superior health and wellness.
