Hypokalemia potassium deficiency, low BP muscle weakness, usually due to increased vomiting and diarrhea
Hypovolemia reduced blood volume when sodium levels are too high, increased thirst, reduced BP and hypotension

What is the role of caffeine in water balance?insignificant
How much water is recommended a day for men and women?men: 13 cups women: 9 cups
What happens in high sodium concentrations?low blood volume, hypothalamus stimulate thirst with ADH and kidneys to hold water
What happens in low sodium concentrations?high blood volume and blood pressure, water in blood moves to ICF to lower BP, regulated by aldosterone
