Abstract: Time course in sweat studies was carried in men and women indigenous to West African zone subjected to increased body heat load through raised ambient temperature and exercise conditions, soas to explain the thermoregulatory mechanisms involved in the apparent fast adjustments of tropical inhabitants to acute increase in their bodyheat load. Decrease in the second 20 minutes was significant in normal conditions, but in the third 20 minutes, under raised temperature conditions; whereas in the exercise conditions, there was a gradual decrease from the first 20 minutes through the second to the third. The results show that the amount of fluid lost by the body through sweating gradually declines with time when these indigenes experience some sudden increase in body heat load and this trend may contribute to body fluid balance and thermoregulatory adjustments under acute increase in body heat load.
