Health Tip: At Risk of Heat Illness?
Factors that make you more vulnerable

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Everyone's prone to heat-related illness, but you may have risk factors that make you more vulnerable to heatstroke, heat exhaustion or heat cramps.

The National Safety Council says you're at greater risk if:

  • You have a chronic heart or circulatory problem.
  • You're a senior citizen.
  • You work outside.
  • You take certain medications, especially those that help regulate body temperature or sweat.
  • You abuse drugs or alcohol.
