Health & Lifestyle Tips from PF Family Medicine


The first sign of hypothermia is shivering. If left to its course it can rapidly progress to slowed movement, decreased thought process, longer reaction time, impaired judgement, coma, and death.

➢ Wear appropriate attire to include several layers, gloves, warm socks. Remember a hat as well, as large amounts of heat are lost from the head
➢ Keep the home temperature above 68 degrees, especially in the bedroom.
➢ Eat warm foods and drink warm liquids
➢ Avoid alcohol. While this can make you feel warm, it causes dilation of blood vessels resulting in greater heat loss.
➢ Check on elderly friends, neighbors, and loved ones regularly to make sure they are staying warm<script  ></script><script  ></script><script  ></script><script  ></script>
