Our expert says:
Due to the poor general health of your friend, I will suggest that she is admitted to hospital where all the necessary tests can be done which will be paid for by the medical aid. If she appears dehydrated, it is possible that she has abnormal micro-elements, i.e. potassium and chloride. Rehydration is therefore, necessary by means of an intravenuous line.
I really think that her condition needs to be investigated and I will appreciate feedback regarding the investigations done.
