As Boston summers continue to break heat records, you might be wondering why you can’t handle the heat well, while your friend seems to be doing just fine.

It may be down to your genetic code. Some people have a natural tolerance towards heat. But that’s not all — there are other factors that come into play. What can also affect heat tolerance is age (both very young and older people tend to overheat faster), weight, alcohol, certain medications and health conditions such as diabetes.

But if you’re heat intolerant, you’re in luck — there are a few ways to increase your tolerance, such as slowly increasing the time you spend outdoors and avoiding air conditioning — but this advice is given with caution, and shouldn’t be done without speaking to your doctor especially if you fall under the above conditions.
