Six healthy, heat-acclimatized subjects were exposed to different hot and humid environments in a climatic chamber and sodium, potassium, and chloride concentrations in their sweat, urine, and blood were determined. The concentration of potassium in sweat was found to be considerably higher than that in the plasma, whereas that of sodium and chloride was very much lower. The concentration of potassium in urine was also 8-12 times higher than that in the plasma as compared to 0.5 to 1.5 times… Expand
Effect of restricted potassium intake on its excretion and on physiological responses during heat stress
There was no significant change in heart rate, sweat volume, oral temperature, sodium, and potassium concentrations in plasma and RBC during the entire period of the study and there is every likelihood of potassium deficiency if a liberal intake is not ensured. Expand
Hormonal Regulation of Fluid and Electrolytes: Effects of Heat Exposure and Exercise in the Heat
A review of the endocrine factors which subserve fluid and electrolyte regulation during acute or chronic sedentary heat exposure or during exercise in the heat necessarily focuses on two targetExpand
Water and electrolyte balance in workers exposed to a hot environment during their work shift.
Water and electrolyte balance in naturally heat-acclimatized workers having free access to water and performing light to moderate work in a warm environment during their regular 8 hour work shift is investigated. Expand

Data obtained from anamnesis and a questionnaire results showed smaller fatigue, higher work capability and better subjective feelings in group 1, and five subjects who previously had complained of recurrent pain and muscle spasm experienced disappearance of these symptoms. Expand
On the trail of potassium in heat injury.
This review attempts to address the observations as well as the role of potassium and potassium depletion in heat injury with an emphasis on the integration of information from the level of transmembrane potassium transport mechanisms to systems physiology. Expand
Nutritional requirements for human adaptation in extreme environments
Health food supplements and “adaptogens” such as Composite Indian Herbal Preparation (CIHP) have been found to enhance the acclimatization of soldiers at HA, which is mainly due to increased calorie intake. Expand
Fluid balance: sweat loss and fluid intake in humans
Investigation of factors regarding fluid losses and gains in resting individuals with a view to the performance of exercise found evidence of a transient decrease in blood and plasma volume possibly due to fluid movement into the intestinal lumen from the body. Expand
Work, salt intake and the development of stomach cancer.
An excess of stomach cancer among workers has been observed and it could be argued that men whose occupation involves heavy work eat more and are consequently exposed to a greater quantity ofExpand
Determining Nutritional Requirements of Indian Soldiers: An Outcome of Translational Research
Soldiers are deployed in different climatic conditions such as hot deserts, hot humid jungles, snowbound high-altitude areas, underwater (submariners), etc. Adequate nutritional support is a primeExpand
Impact of passive heat acclimation on markers of kidney function during heat stress
Heat acclimation mitigated the reduction in urine‐concentrating ability and reduced the incidence of albuminuria in young healthy adults after passive heat stress, suggesting that passive heat acclimations might improve structural integrity and reduce glomerular permeability during passive heat Stress.
