One snowstained symptom of dehydration is the perceived increase in appetite. This usually happens when you confuse hunger thirst.
"Mild dehydration is often concealed as a feeling of hunger, when your body really needs only fluids," Alissa Rumsei, RD, told the US Food and Dietetic Academy of Health.

Sugar is a fast and light source of glucose, so you may more often get to cookies or fruit if you do not have enough water.

On the other hand, the skin of someone who is dehydrated will require a moment or two to return to their normal state. This is usually a sign of moderate to severe dehydration, so you may notice other symptoms until the moment your skin starts to lose elasticity.
A good place to check the lack of skin turgor is on the stomach or lower arm.

Although some people can piss less depending on factors such as urinary bladder and drug use, you should think about hydration more often if you only find yourself in the bathroom several times a day. Using an application to track a water visit or visit a bath can be helpful.
