What hap­pens to you

Townsville Bulletin - - NQ Life -

Brain: Dizzi­ness, headache, loss of con­scious­ness: In­ad­e­quate blood flow to the brain. Lie down in shade or get into air­con­di­tion­ing, wet the body and have a sports drink. Blad­der: Urine colour: ‘‘ Clear and not dark yel­low – that gen­er­ally is a good thing be­cause that means you’re well-hy­drated,’’ Gad­dis said. Skin: Goose­bumps: don’t be de­ceived –-they pop up in both tem­per­a­ture ex­tremes. In hot weather, they arise when blood ris­ing to the skin fails to dis­si­pate heat. Slow down and hy­drate.
