Make Sure You Stay Healthy During the Cold Temperatures

Posted: Updated:

Temperatures are still falling, and even though Montanans are use to the cold, we would still like to remind you that it does not take long to feel its effects.

Let's say you're out shoveling those side walks for an extended period of time, you could be a perfect candidate for hypothermia. But being able to identify those symptoms before it's too late, can make all the difference.

Dr. Jim Nichols explains that, "Some of the early signs of hypothermia are just uncontrollable shivering, or if you have a friend who suddenly is slurring their speech or acting differently in terms of behavior."

He also says if you experience anything like those symptoms, to stop what you're doing immediately and seek medical help.
