Salt residue when sweating
Posted 14 December 2009 - 04:15 PM
i am a body noob to start off with but i have a question that i want to know more about.
i am a slim build guy who works a shit ton of hours a week and am in the building business. i sweat my ass off everyday i work and am 27 years old.
all of a sudden my sweat is leaving salt residue on my skin and clothes for the first time ever. i have not changed my diet or routine but i seem to be coming home after a hard days work with salt all over me.
does this mean that a certain organ is not working properly? or am i just getting old?

as you get quite dehydrated and there is nearly no more fluids in your body to sweat out, the sweat that was on your skin (and especially in hot weather) begins to dry and leave that salty residue.
so basically if your working that hard that this happens, you should be rehydrating more.

Seriously, don't worry about it, it's normal.

i'm no health expert mate but if you're losing that much salt like i am, i'd be drinking sports drinks to rehydrate. they have a higher sodium content to replace the salts. i drink them anyway cause they taste nice and are always 2 for $5.
i understand keeping hydrated is a big deal at least, i just wasnt sure why all of a sudden i was salty when nothing has changed.
