    I think We should replenish the lost body fluids. And that is why I posted the question. I googled and found a lot of hits in which "replenish the sweat" is used. And another question is " should we say body fluid or body fluids?

    "replenish the sweat" is incorrect. It is the body fluids that become sweat so we need to replenish the fluids.

    I agree. And it might help to know that commercials, such as for Gatorade, often suggest that you drink their product to replenish the electrolytes and minerals that are lost when you sweat.
