How often should I measure my hydration levels?

Body hydration levels are dynamic, meaning they fluctuate throughout the day. For instance, first-morning urine is generally more concentrated, typically resulting in a higher USG value. Factors like fluid intake, diet, climate, hormonal (circadian) rhythms, and activity levels significantly influence your body's hydration status. A spot urine test provides a snapshot of your hydration status at a specific moment. For a comprehensive hydration profile, it's advisable to monitor USG multiple times throughout the day. Relying on a single data point for a conclusive assessment can be misleading. For clinical evaluation using USG measurements, it is recommended to check USG on a 24-hour urine sample for a comprehensive analysis.
