1) Recognize the early warning signs of dehydration.
These can include dark yellow urine, loss of energy, dizziness, loss of coordination, cramps, headaches, or unusual fatigue. If left untreated, more extreme symptoms can occur.
2) Allow for acclimation.
Acclimation is the body's adaptation to a hot environment. Slowly increase practice intensity and duration over the first two weeks of training. Most cases of heat illness occur in the first 2 to 3 days of training.
3) Drink up.
Once acclimated, fluid intake needs to be greater because sweat losses will be higher.
4) Have fluids within arm's reach.
Fluids should be easily accessible during workouts, practices and games.
5) Don't rely on thirst.
Drink during exercise to minimize
6) Favor sports drinks over water.
Research demonstrates that the carbohydrate in sports drinks fuels muscle 2,3,4,5 and sodium encourages voluntary drinking and promotes hydration.1,6,7
7) Drink it. Don't pour it.
Pouring fluid over your head may feel great but won't help restore body fluids or lower body temperature.
8) Exercise in the morning or evening.
This is when the weather is coolest. Also, avoid the direct sun to minimize radiant heat from the sun and hot playing surfaces.
9) Dress for the weather.
Keeping cool in hot weather means wearing fewer clothes and frequently removing gear like helmets during breaks.
10) Break it up.
Increase the frequency and duration.
I always tell my patients to take care of the feet as they care about their face. Following tips should be practised regularly.
1.Inspect your feet daily. if your eyesight is poor than tell someone else to do it for you.
What should I look for ??
Inspect for:Skin or nail problems: Look for cuts, scrapes, redness, drainage, swelling, bad odor, rash, discoloration, loss of hair on toes, injuries, or nail changes (deformed, striped, yellowed or discolored, thickened, or not growing).
check if your foot is swollen, red, hot, or has changed in size, shape, or direction.
2.Don’t ignore leg pain.
Pain in the leg that occurs at night or with a little activity could mean you have a blocked artery. Speak to your Diabetologist doctor immediately.
If you have any nail problems, hard nails, or reduced feeling in your feet, your toenails should be properly trimmed
Never trim calluses or corns yourself, and don’t use over-the-counter medicated pads.
5.Keep floors free of sharp objects. Make sure there are no needles, insulin syringes, or other sharp objects on the floor.
6.Don’t go barefoot. Wear shoes, indoors and outdoors.
7.Check shoes and socks before putting them on for any pointed foreign object like stone or nail.
Make sure your socks aren’t very tight which can restrict blood flow.
8.Have your circulation and sense of feeling tested. Doctor will do it for you.
