Jessica Simpson Ailing

Jessica Simpson becomes the latest star to come down with the flu. She had to be admitted to the hospital after becoming dehydrated. Is it just me, or do celebrities become dehydrated more often than “regular” people.

The following are symptoms of dehydration:

Thirst, dry lips, slightly dry mouth membranes, very dry mouth membranes, sunken eyes, sunken fontanelle, skin doesn’t bounce back quickly when lightly pinched and released, rapid and weak pulse, cold hands and feet, rapid breathing, blue lips, confusion, lethargy, and difficult to arouse.

This can all be avoided by drinking non-alcoholic/caffeine free beverages. That’s why Lindsay Lohan got dehydrated – too much caffeine.

This has been a public service announcement from A Socialite’s Life.
