Exercise: If you don't have any problems with your joints, I would recommend a low impact workout like elliptical, stationary bike or walking. I would do that for about 20 minutes and then have a trainer show you how to set up a circuit type of workout. By strengthening muscles, you will burn fat. Plus it is totally fun. Get someone to go with you so you can motivate each other. ...Read more
More than 2 steps: Perhaps a pharmacist can chime in, but I believe that there are multiple governing bodies that require documentation of dispensation of controlled substance, including the dea, state-level agencies (e.g. Hawaii has a narcotics enforcement division), state pharmacy boards, etc. Pharmacies may also have their own internal requirements. I doubt this can be distilled down to "two steps.". ...Read more

So if you are feeding your baby and they are happy, making tears, and wetting a goodly number of diapers then they are well hydrated. At times of water loss, such as fever or diarrhea, then pedialyte makes a good temporary rehydration solution. Water can do too in smaller amounts. ...Read more
Common: Unfortunately, it is a common change with aging, and some of us are genetically predisposed to have more rapid and/or more pronounced disc dessication than others. Remaining active & hydrated help some. Others recommend periodic inversion (hanging upside down) to "stretch" the discs & encourage uptake of fluids/nutrients--?

With your history of heart disease start by seeing your cardiologist as soon as possible. ...Read more
Body hydration: Make sure you stay adequately hydrated by following the general rule of thumb: "drink eight 8 ounce glasses of water daily". Adjust your fluid intake during exercise and during activities that increase perspiration. Skin protection with proper SPF CONTAINING lotions during outside activity is beneficial.

Maybe if very ill: If a person is either mildly under-hydrated because he hadn't drank much fluids that day, normally hydrated, or mildly over-hydrated because he had drank a lot of fluids, his kidneys still should be working normally, so his blood test to estimate his GFR should still be valid. If a person is very ill, and has quite abnormal hydration, his abnormal blood test results may not reflect his usual gfr. ...Read more

Running at times of day when the heat & humidity (or heat index) are in a comfortable range will help the body's cooling system work more effectively. ...Read more
WATER!!!: Nothing beats good old water for hydration. Sports drinks don't hydrate any better, though you might drink more of them because of the sweetness- but the sugar is not good for you. If sweating a lot, sports drinks do have electrolytes, but you can get those from having salt and fruits. Some special forms of water like "microwater" are thought to be more hydrating than others. See comment for more:. ...Read more

To avoid dry skin, avoid low humidity, harsh winds, dry heat, high altitude, sun, alcohol, long baths, and harsh soaps that wash off your natural protective skin oils. ...Read more
