To investigate longitudinal effects of age on heat-activated sweat gland density and output, eight healthy active men (mean age 65–70 years) were retested after 5-years using 60-min passive heating [by placing the lower legs and feet in a 42°C water bath while sitting in a warm chamber (35°C and 45% relative humidity)]. Their height, body mass, surface area-to-mass ratio, mean skinfold thickness, resting systolic and diastolic blood pressures, pedometer readings and estimated maximal oxygen… CONTINUE READING
