The Urgent Care Doctor
Doctors working urgent care centers see more than their fair share of alcohol-related cases, which is why Dr. Erick Miranda of GoHealth Urgent Care quickly points to Pedialyte as a helpful solution. “Alcohol is a diuretic, putting you at greater risk for dehydration,” he says. “Pedialyte contains sodium and potassium, a great combo for fostering rehydration.”
Of course, it’s not the only electrolyte-laden drink around, but it’s arguably the most effective. “A bottle of Pedialyte contains twice the sodium and five times the potassium as a bottle of Gatorade, with fewer than half as many calories,” Miranda says.
