Two studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggested how patients with diabetes could avoid experiencing heat illness during exercise on hot days. According to the first study, a week-long supervised exercise training in the heat could help patients with diabetes maintain a lower heart rate and body temperature and allow them to sweat more, while the second study found that wetting the skin on the arms, back, chest and legs could help reduce thermal discomfort and sweating while doing workouts in the heat.
