Staying Hydrated this Summer

As much as we enjoy the summer weather, higher temperatures increase the importance of staying hydrated. This is especially important if you are a person with OI who perspires heavily. Below are a few tips to help you make hydration a habit:

  1. Always carry a water bottle
  2. Add a glass of water to your other beverages at meals
  3. Remember that you can become dehydrated even in the shade or in a swimming pool
  4. Pay attention to your body. In hot weather, start slow and don’t rush or overdo it

Dehydration can lead to serious health problems and can make you feel even more uncomfortable when it’s hot outside. Reach for a cool cup of water and stay hydrated!
