Stay healthy in the heat with BIBO!

The summer of 2024 has gotten off to a slow start, and it’s easy to be fooled by the cool breezes and rainy days into thinking that we might avoid the heat this summer. However, current climate data suggests otherwise, indicating a potentially intense season ahead.


Warmer Seas, Warmer Weather

Recent reports indicate that global sea temperatures have reached record highs for 13 consecutive months, including the seas around the UK. The North Sea, in particular, shows temperatures significantly higher than average, ranging from 2°C to 4°C above the norm. This anomaly suggests that the UK could experience a warmer-than-usual summer.


The Heat Is On: Understanding the Implications

While reaching for the ice cream on hot days is tempting, cooling down with water should also be a priority.


The NHS highlights the importance of good hydration, not just as a remedy for thirst but as a preventive measure for various health issues, including:

  • Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs): Adequate hydration helps flush toxins from the urinary tract, reducing the risk of infections.
  • Headaches: Dehydration is a common trigger for headaches and migraines.
  • Constipation: Water helps soften stools and promotes regular bowel movements.
  • Dizziness and Falls: Severe dehydration can cause dizziness, increasing the risk of falls, especially in older people.
  • Confusion: Insufficient hydration can impair cognitive functions, leading to clarity.
  • Kidney Stones: Regular fluid intake is crucial in preventing the formation of kidney stones.
  • Skin Conditions: Hydrated skin is less likely to suffer from dryness and other skin conditions.
  • Overall Poor Health: Chronic dehydration can affect your health, making you more susceptible to various diseases.


Tips for Staying Hydrated

Increase Fluid Intake: Aim for 6-8 glasses of fluids daily, more if you’re active or it’s particularly hot.

Eat Water-Rich Foods: Incorporate enjoyable and hydrating fruits like watermelon, strawberries, and cucumbers into your diet.

Monitor Hydration Levels: Pay attention to the colour of your urine—clear or pale yellow generally indicates good hydration.

Limit Diuretics: Beverages like coffee and alcohol increase urine production and can lead to fluid loss. Moderation is key.

Keep Water On Hand: Always carry a water bottle, especially outdoors.
