Bret Nicks, associate professor of emergency medicine at Wake Forest Baptist Medical, has revealed some simple steps to follow in order to avoid heat-related illnesses.


Nicks said exercising in high temperatures could limit people's body ability to cool itself, especially if they weren't accustom to it and that could result in serious health risks.

He further suggested that people should be proactive and should check with their doctors if any medical conditions they might have or medications that they were taking would not increase their sensitivity to the heat.

It was also revealed that people should know the symptoms like heavy sweating or inability to sweat, weakness, dizziness, nausea or vomiting, confusion, fainting and seizures, which could damage their brain, vital organs and muscles.

The expert mentioned that Wearing light-colored, loose-fitting clothe and using sun protection like sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat would be a good idea to avoid sunburn. Furthermore, people should drink water early and often and they should avoid workout at peak sun time.
