IV hydration enables you to get rid of symptoms such as jet lag, hangovers, and migraines. It is a simple, non-invasive treatment that rarely causes complications, making it suitable for people of all ages, including children. If the team at Primary Choice Family Clinic & Urgent Care suspects nutritional deficiency, they may recommend Frisco IV hydration to restore your energy levels.
What is IV hydration?
Intravenous (IV) hydration is a non-invasive treatment that involves delivering fluids and nutrients directly into your bloodstream through a tiny IV attached to your arm. This procedure restores balance in your body, preventing specific complications. Your provider may recommend IV hydration if you have severe dehydration or lack certain essential nutrients in your body, such as minerals and vitamins.
Factors that can cause severe dehydration include sickness, serious burns or injuries, too much time in the sun, engaging in intense physical activities and surgery. Severe dehydration causes dizziness, dry tongue and lips, dry eyes and frequent headaches. If not addressed, dehydration may affect the functioning of your heart and brain and affect your mental balance.
What are the available forms of IV hydration?
The fluid inside your IV depends on the unique needs of your body. Prime Choice Family Clinic & Urgent Care offers the following forms of IV hydration:
- Hangover or jet lag infusion
After the overconsumption of alcohol, an extended vacation, or a long-distance drive, you may experience lingering fatigue and frequent headaches. A hangover infusion contains the necessary nutrients to rejuvenate your body and restore energy levels, relieving your hangover symptoms.
- Migraine infusion
A migraine infusion is a form of IV hydration that relieves intense migraine headaches. This formula consists of magnesium sulfate, which reduces symptoms like nausea and pain.
- Vitamin infusions
If your body lacks the nutrients to sustain itself, you may get sick or injured. This approach bypasses your digestive system, ensuring that all the delivered vitamins are available. Multivitamins also supply the necessary vitamins in your body, but the absorption rate may be low, depending on a variety of factors. A vitamin infusion rejuvenates your body while strengthening your immune system.
- Immunity boost
An immunity boost consists of antioxidants, water, and vitamins. Combining these ingredients boosts your immune system, preventing you from getting sick.
How long do you need to complete IV hydration?
It takes about 45-60 minutes to complete an IV hydration. During your appointment at Prime Choice Family Clinic & Urgent Care, your doctor may examine you before the infusion, determining the appropriate form of IV hydration for you. The team will review your health and discuss your goals and the current medications you are taking.
If your doctor suspects nutritional deficiency, they will order lab tests such as urinalysis or blood work. After analyzing your results, the team will design an individualized treatment plan that aligns with your unique needs. Depending on your deficiencies, your provider may schedule several IV hydration sessions several months apart. If you experience unexplained fatigue, nausea, or frequent headaches, you might have a nutritional deficiency.
