Did you know your body is constantly in a struggle to disperse the heat it produces? Most of the time, you're hardly aware of it – unless your body is exposed to more heat than it can handle.

Heat-related illnesses can escalate rapidly, leading to delirium, organ damage and even death. There are several heat-related illnesses, including heatstroke (the most severe), heat exhaustion and heat cramps.

Those most at risk include:

  • Individuals taking medications that alter sweat production
  • Alcoholic and drug abusers
