Drinking water in hot weather: Three important rules

Dr. Tran Thi Phuong Thao from Ho Chi Minh City University of Medicine and Pharmacy Hospital – Facility 3 emphasizes the importance of water for the body, as about 60% of our body is water. Proper hydration is essential for the body to function effectively, especially on hot days.

It is important for people to protect themselves from the sun by wearing hats, shirts, masks, gloves, and sunglasses, and to drink water regularly when traveling or working in hot weather. Drinking water correctly is crucial during the hot season. It is recommended to drink filtered water between 10-30 degrees Celsius and avoid cold water, as it can have negative effects on the body such as shock or gastrointestinal discomfort. It is also important to limit the consumption of diuretic beverages like tea, coffee, beer, and wine, and to supplement with additional water.

During hot weather, the body loses a lot of water through sweat, so it is important to replenish electrolytes like sodium and potassium. It is advised to drink water slowly and evenly throughout the day, rather than all at once, especially after exercising or heavy work. Adding fruits and vegetables with high water content and vitamins to your diet is also beneficial for staying hydrated.

It’s important not only to drink enough water but also not too much as factors like age, gender, activity level
