Years ago when I was 14 I used to be really self conscious about my weight and was convinced I needed my weight to be as low as it possibly could. I used to run on the treadmill for about an hour and sometimes two hours each day of the week. I sweated a lot and wasn't aware of electrolyte loss and how dangerous sweat loss could be. I remember my weight went as low as 158 then would fluctuate around 165 to 172 between 15 and 17 years old. I'm 21 now and still around 172. One main problem I've had since then is skin turgor. When I pull the skin on my fingers it takes longer than 5 seconds to retract back to normal, I'd say maybe even ten seconds. Also, my skin across my body and on my face is noticeably dull and sunken in. I'm thinking this is from salt loss because I've been drinking water regularly and usually I urinate a lot and it's clear but no changes in skin. I have noticed sometimes theres a difference and it feels fuller when I wake up but then goes back to how it is now. How can I solve this?
