A bit old info . . . 

 

That's been physiological knowledge forever.  Consequence of being cold is the blood vessels constrict in order for more body heat to be maintained in the core.  Then your kidneys sense increase volume and are convinced you are fluid overloaded.  Then they secrete hormones to make you pee . . .

More like less hormones released, IE, angiotensin, I misspoke.  Would not lead to dehydration, once they pee enough out, the kidney will detect a normal osmolarity and start to release angiotensin.

The development of the doc-in-the-box gives working folks a chance to get health care outside of the 8-5 office hours of most family practitioners. But IME, you cannot deal with long-term stuff like hypertension; the box docs will write a scrip for a month or two, but not ongoing.

 

My current job has no sick leave and no flextime, and I am now of the age where I need to see specialists. Huge PITA. People are working in the 21st century economy, but docs are still working in a 1950s world. If the financial and regulatory terrain was better, I think the free market could solve a lot of the problem. Not for subsistence-level folks going to the ER for the flu, but for working stiffs.
