The discharge of sympathetic nerves innervating the skin is reduced in aged compared with middle-aged and young human subjects.
This reduction poses problems because blood flow to selected areas of skin play an important role in regulating body temperature. If these neurogenic thermoregulatory mechanisms are impaired by age, then engaging in heat-producing activities might be dangerous for older individuals. For example, doing heavy work on a hot, humid day in July or August might cause your body to generate and store heat more rapidly than it can get rid of it. This will lead to an elevation in body temperature and possibly to heat exhaustion or heat stroke. One sign that you are overdoing things is if you are losing a great deal of fluid through sweating.
