|Objective||An epidemic of chronic kidney disease is occurring in manual laborers who regularly work in hot environments. The reason is unclear, but it is likely that reductions in body water and increases in body temperature elicit acute kidney injury that, when repeated, leads to chronic kidney disease. In humans, physical work in the heat elicits acute and moderate increases in biomarkers of renal dysfunction. However, it is unknown if the previously observed changes in renal function are exacerbated when rehydrating during or after physical work in the heat, and if body cooling during these rehydration strategies attenuates the changes in renal function.
