Doctor discusses heat risks

Does this hot weather make you sick? It might be your medications, according to Dr. Chris Link.

“There’s many medications like diuretics and blood pressure pills that dampen our ability to sweat and modulate our core temperature,” Link said.

Link says the very young and older folks are at the greatest risk from the heat and humidity. He says stay in the air conditioning if you can. If you have to be outside, drink plenty of water and take lots of breaks.
