(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.

Don't wait to drink until you feel thirsty, which may mean you're already dehydrated.
