What should be preferred for oral rehydration out of salts and glucose + vitamin D?

Do both need to be taken in equal amounts? Why?

  • It depends on a lot of factors. First of all the reason for rehydration, that is, how did one become dehydrated in the first place (just sweating during a vigorous workout, sever vomiting or diarrhea or something else); the severity; the length of a process and likelihood of reoccurrence etc. Also, why did you tag it with blood-pressure: because of low blood-pressure due to (mild) hypovolaemia or because of ingredients unadvisable for people with high blood-pressure? I'm not sure it can be answered easily here - it has to fall in between being too broad and asking for personalised advice. – Lucky May 29 '15 at 14:44
