After suffering through the cold, dark days of winter and some of the frustrating weather spring can be known for, the warm (or even hot) weather of summertime can be a welcomed respite. But, If we are not careful, the heat can lead to medical issues such as:
With climate change and periods of extremely hot weather (a.k.a. heat waves) becoming more prevalent this can lead to these (and other) medical issues and even lead to death.
Medical issues you may experience during heatwaves are often overlooked or dismissed. Some are obvious, such as sunburned skin, but others can be a little more subtle. For instance, understanding the difference between heat stroke and heat exhaustion can be the difference between life and death. The differences can include:
Muscle cramps, bug bites, and sunburn can be easily identified and treated, but being proactive can be beneficial. Think ahead and you can prevent medical issues before they arrive.
