Protect Yourself From Summer Heat(https://www.cdc.gov/)

Why are older adults more likely to get heat stress?

  • Older adults do not adjust as well as young people to sudden changes in temperature.
  • They are more likely to have a chronic medical condition that changes normal body responses to heat.
  • They are more likely to take prescription medicines that affect the body’s ability to control its temperature or sweat.

Stay cool, stay hydrated

  • Stay in air-conditioned buildings as much as possible.
  • Do not rely on a fan as your main cooling source when it’s really hot outside.
  • Drink more water than usual and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to drink.
    If your doctor limits the amount of fluids you drink or has you on water pills, ask them how much you should drink during hot weather.
  • Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing.
  • Do not engage in very strenuous activities and get plenty of rest.
  • Check on a friend or neighbor and have someone do the same for you.


Grapefruit Juice: Is it affecting your medication?

About one-fifth of Americans have grapefruit juice for breakfast -- a time of day when many people also take medications. Grapefruit juice, it turns out, can affect some medications.

So you may need to rethink your morning drink and ask your doctor if you can keep drinking grapefruit juice.
