Dehydration

When you're dehydrated, your body doesn't have enough fluid to work properly. An average person on an average day needs about 3 quarts of water. But if you're out in the hot sun, you'll need a lot more than that. Most healthy bodies are very good at regulating water. Elderly people, young children and some special cases - like people taking certain medications - need to be a little more careful. Signs of dehydration in adults include. -Being thirsty. -Urinating less often than usual. -Dark-colored urine. -Dry skin. -Feeling tired. -Dizziness and fainting. Signs of dehydration in babies and young children include a dry mouth and tongue, crying without tears, no wet diapers for 3 hours or more, a high fever and being unusually sleepy or drowsy. If you think you're dehydrated, drink small amounts of water over a period of time. Taking too much all at once can overload your stomach and make you throw up. For people exercising in the heat and losing a lot of minerals in sweat, sports drinks can be helpful. Avoid any drinks that have caffeine. .  [from MedlinePlus]

Frontotemporal Dementia, Chromosome 3-Linked

Chromosome 3-linked frontotemporal dementia (FTD3) has been described in a single family from Denmark and in one individual with familial FTD3 from Belgium. It typically starts between ages 46 and 65 years with subtle personality changes and slowly progressive behavioral changes, dyscalculia, and language disturbances. Disinhibition or loss of initiative is the most common presenting symptom. The disease progresses over a few years into profound dementia with mutism. Several individuals have developed an asymmetric akinetic rigid syndrome with arm and gait dystonia and pyramidal signs that may be related to treatment with neuroleptic drugs. Disease duration may be as short as three years or longer than 20 years. [from GeneReviews]
