Heat Advisory for Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana

IL, TN, IN, KT (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.
Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection.
These temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days in a row. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.
Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
Precautionary/preparedness actions: A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.

Springfield Clinic's Dietetics & Nutrition Department offers a clinically driven, community-based approach to nutritional health and wellness. Our registered dietitian provides personalized counseling and education in all aspects of diet and nutrition for weight management and disease control.

While genetics play a role in many chronic illnesses, diet and other lifestyles factors can have a real impact on the prevention and treatment of many health issues. If you have high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure or are overweight, seeing an RD regularly may be an investment in good health. For example, recent research shows that receiving education, support and referrals from an RD helped people with type 2 diabetes lose more weight, take fewer medications and feel better than those who didn't seek help.

If you're ready to take the steps to live a healthier, longer, fitter life, contact the Dietetics & Nutrition Department at Springfield Clinic.
