How To Avoid Heat-Related Health Problems
- Avoid sun exposure, especially between 12 pm to 3 pm as temperatures are its highest.
- Use a sunscreen lotion with high sun protection factor (SPF)
- Stay indoors as much as possible. The sun will also heat the inner core of your body resulting in dehydration.
- Drink plenty of fluids especially water, even if you do not feel thirsty. Injury and death can occur from dehydration which can happen quickly and unnoticed. Symptoms of dehydration are often confused with other conditions. Persons who are on fluid-restrictive diets; or who have a problem with fluid retention should consult a doctor before increasing liquid intake.
- Avoid drinks with alcohol or caffeine in them. They can make you feel good briefly but eventually, they will make the heat’s effects on your body worse.
- NEVER leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. The temperature inside a closed vehicle can reach over 140 degrees Fahrenheit within minutes. Exposure to such high temperatures can kill in minutes.
- Eat small meals and eat more often. Large, heavy meals are more difficult to digest and cause your body to increase internal heat to aid digestion, worsening overall conditions.
