    hi,

    does anyone have an opinion and/or facts on how humidity and temperature affect blood volume? i just returned from a trip to provincetown on cape cod where i noticed that a lot of the problems i typically associate with low blood volume (ie. dizziness, stupor after large meals) went away completely. i'm back in florida today where it's 91 with a heat index of 100 and the problems are back. does that great coastal weather enhance oxygen transport or something?

    I have always noticed that most of my symptoms get better if I go on a short vacation...my opinion is that our hyperactive immune systems suddenly have a new set of things to react to, and it takes time to gear up. So we get a little "rest."

    I have found that fludrocortisone in very small doses helps with the low blood volume problem. diane
