Should older people exercise on hot days?

Seniors and Heat Injury

Senior athletes are more susceptible to heat injury during exercise because of decreased ability to regulate temperature and feel thirst, as well as the effect of some medications. Excercise can help regulate body temperature, but problems may still arise. Discuss the issue of heat injury during exercise with a sports medicine physician if you think you might be affected.
