The scorching heat of the 2023 ‘Heatdome’ in Texas was one of the most intense ever recorded – its suffocating 115F (46C) temperature a direct result of humans playing a role in exacerbating climate change.

Extremely high temperatures can bring about a range of heat-related illnesses, with heat stroke topping the list as the most serious. This condition occurs when patient’s bodies are no longer able to control their core temperature.

Acting quickly is essential to prevent the potentially disastrous results of heat stroke – such as death or long-term disability. Those most at risk include young children, elderly seniors, and those with pre-existing health conditions, financial hardship, or who labor outside.

In July 2023, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that 25% of Americans are at risk without adequate shelter from dangerous heat waves. Over 40 million US citizens have received heat warnings in 2023 and endured extreme temperatures due to a series of oppressive heat domes sweeping across the world.

For two-thirds of the population in America, their home county is at risk of unexpected heatwaves exacerbating serious medical issues. In particular, heat exhaustion and heatstroke could occur, while pre-existing heart or lung diseases could be aggravated.

The new offering from Budget Pharmacy focuses on the pharmacy becoming the “go-to” source of information for citizens in The Woodlands, on how to stay hydrated and prevent heatstroke whilst pursuing an active lifestyle or managing a range of health conditions.

With scorching summer temps, citizens must maintain fluid levels and take extra precautions against heat exhaustion. For patients who are ill or laboring outside in the warm months, rehydration with ordinary water is likely to be insufficient due to the rapid loss of body electrolytes.

The Budget Pharmacy service offers counseling on a range of electrolyte replacement heatstroke protection strategies for patients with a wide variety of lifestyle, work and health conditions.

Electrolyte beverages are designed to replenish the body’s essential minerals, like sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. These special drinks help combat sickness-related loss of hydration caused by either perspiration or retching.

Electrolytes are key to maintaining body temperature and keeping blood pressure in check, to avoid the possibility of heat exhaustion. Such beverages are specifically created for quick absorption and to replenish much-needed fluids that ordinary water cannot provide in the time available.

For athletes, hard outdoor workers, and those suffering from sickness, electrolyte-infused beverages can rapidly replenish the body with electrolytes and salts. Budget Pharmacy stresses it is important to consume electrolyte drinks sensibly, however – they are not a “go-to” beverage throughout the day. Rather, they should be consumed in small amounts (no larger than a glass) every couple of hours in response to symptoms of heat illness.

The American College of Sports Medicine encourages athletes to use electrolyte-filled beverages as a means of rehydrating and restoring lost minerals after an intense session. For workouts under 60 minutes, plain water will suffice. Whilst children must get enough vitamins and nutrients in their diet, and patients recovering from illness may need rapid rehydration, practicing moderation is key.

Budget Pharmacy warns that too much of a good thing can be dangerous; drinking an abundance of electrolyte beverages with no clear purpose (like recovering from an illness, or avoiding heat stroke) can lead to health problems like weight gain, type 2 diabetes, dental issues and even cardiac and bone issues.

Budget Pharmacy encourages patients to incorporate electrolytes into their lifestyle, working or health management routines as required and in moderation. This will protect from the increasingly dangerous heat dome episodes that are becoming all too common.
