Can Dehydration Cause High Blood Pressure?

Q:

Can dehydration cause high blood pressure?

A:

Yes, dehydration can cause high blood pressure. Dehydration is defined as the excessive loss of body fluid, which means that you don’t have enough water in your blood. It can cause your blood to become too thick. As a result,  the blood pressure might go up. Drinking more water to thin the blood will prevent the need for these muscles to squeeze and stop the increase of blood pressure.
