Heat and Dehydration

Why does dehydration occur more often in the hot weather?

  • In hot weather or climates the body temperature rises
  • As a result, the body’s sweat rate increases as it attempts to ‘cool itself’ down
  • Through sweat there is the loss of both fluid and electrolyte – this can lead to dehydration and / or heat related illnesses.

Common symptoms of heat illnesses:  Dizziness, nausea/vomiting, confusion, cramps, lethargy, headache.

NOTE: Many of the above symptoms are associated with dehydration.
