With continuous exercise and proper nutrition to treat the daily threats of hypoglycaemia, is this condition curable not just a treatable daily chore?

Do I need to go to doctors if I've suffered from heat exhaustion or can it safely be treated from home?

Best To Be Evaluated: While you can treat heat exhaustion on your own by cooling the patient and rehydrating them, it is best that they be seen by their doctor to rule out more serious issues. Heat illness can progress very rapidly, especially if they are not cooled properly or adequately hydrated. If they are unable to hold down any liquids, complain of pain, esp. Headaches, dizziness, appear slow or not "with it". ...Read more
