While heat related illness can be a problem for anybody, the risks aren’t equal. People who have certain medical conditions or who take some medications to treat those conditions are at a greater risk of having problems in hot weather. The risk of heat illness goes up during exertion and physical activity and with certain health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. So people with those types of chronic conditions must be even more careful when exerting themselves or participating in physical activity, as they already have a predisposed risk factor.
Alcohol use also increases the risk. So do medications that slow sweat production such as antihistamines, tricyclic antidepressants, and diuretics used to treat water retention, high blood pressure, and some liver and kidney conditions.
Cardio Renew EDTA is not known to have this kind of adverse side effect or contributing risk factor, though taking all precautions during heat exposure is still strongly advised.
Air conditioning is the No. 1 protective factor against heat illness. If you don’t have air conditioning, spend time in public facilities, such as libraries and malls that have air conditioning. Reduce strenuous activities or do them during early mornings and evenings when it’s cooler. If you’re outside for long stretches of time, carry a water bottle, drink fluids regularly, and don’t push your limits.
People who play sports should wear light, loose-fitting clothes and drink water or sports drinks (unless restricted by your doctor) before, during, and after activity. So for example, one of activities that we have recommended, as a good source of physical exercise, is mowing the lawn (with a push mower of course!), but make sure to consider the time of day that you choose to do so. We would recommend early evening, as the sun begins to lose its daytime force.
If you see someone experiencing heat illness, have the person lie down in a cool place and elevate the legs. Use water, wet towels, and fanning to help cool the person down until emergency help comes.
We hope that Cardio Renew has you in a condition that allows you to prudently beat the heat. So please, enjoy and take advantage of the full range of activities that summer allows, but do so with proper precaution and don’t forget the sunblock!
Wishing You Good Health and Vitality, Cardio Renew EDTA Europe.
