Fluid imbalances’ are the imbalances caused in the body due to losses in the fluid contents of the body pertaining to the effects of many external factors like sunlight, medications and hampering in functioning of lungs and kidneys. All these factors are likely to cause many other health hazards like dehydration, hypocalcaemia, hypercalcaemia and acidosis, alkalosis etc.

When the kidneys do not work well because of chronic kidney disease, the body cannot get rid of unneeded fluids. The body may lose too much fluid due to diarrhea, vomiting, severe blood loss, or high fever. Lack of a hormone called antidiuretic hormone (ADH) can cause the kidneys to get rid of too much fluid.
