Health Tip: Drink Lots of Fluids This Summer

Suggestions for what to drink, and when
(HealthDay News) -- Drinking fluids regularly when the weather is hot can help prevent dehydration.
The American Heart Association offers these suggestions for dealing with the heat:
If you are exercising outdoors or have a chronic health condition, you should drink extra fluids. If you tend to sweat heavily, drink extra fluids. Don't wait to drink until you feel thirsty, which may mean you're already dehydrated. Pale urine indicates that you are well hydrated, while darker urine suggests you need more fluids.
