Summer means...

Summer can mean we have to be very mindful of the state of our electrolytes. I was already needing a slight increase in my fludrocortisone probably due to the heat of summer then I began to eat all the wonderful fruits and veggies available and pow! I got into trouble before I knew what happened.  Seems all the wonderful things I love are full of potassium.  I am trying to watch how much I consume and drinking lots of water, either club soda or plain water.  Also, watch how much caffeine you consume as it will serve as a diuretic.

This is just  gentle reminder as it is on my mind of late! Summer is a wonderful season but for anyone with Addison's it has a few pitfalls we need to avoid. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

I have just discovered your blog and have added it to my blog roll. I've had a fibre art blog for many years but just this week, I decided to start another blog where I would share about my journey with Addison's and chronic disease.

I really mind the heat as well. I'm so happy that this week, we are getting 'heat pump' installed. It adds heat in the winter and cools the air in the summer.
