TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Some Indiana State University researchers study how to keepathletes safe in extreme heat.
They said at least 50 percent of Indiana athletes start ofpreseason dehydrated.
The best way to measure dehydration is by loss in body mass.
If a player loses a few pounds, they need to re-hydratethemselves by a few litres of water.
If they start dehydrated, it's difficult to measure how muchwater they really need.
The researchers have studied athletes at the high school,college, and professional levels.
"Hydration is absolutely, 100 percent, related to rises in corebody temperature. We know that when people are dehydrated they'remore suceptable to heat illness. So, we have to be on top ofmaintaining their hydration status," researcher Lindsey Ebermansaid.
The researchers also said in extreme heat conditions, athletesshould only practice outside before 9 a.m. and after 4 p.m.
