Tips for Denver Altitude

Denver may be the Mile High City, but many visitors do not notice the altitude difference. Still, it is important to be mindful of the altitude change when visiting. Altitude sickness symptoms consist of shortness of breath, nausea, headaches, trouble sleeping, dizziness, and exhaustion. Below are remedies and precautions to prevent or minimize altitude sickness.

  • Drink more than your normal amount of water two days prior to arriving in Denver. Maintain water intake while you are in Denver. Drinking liquid with electrolytes, such as Gatorade, is another option as well.
  • Eat foods high in potassium: bananas, oranges, leafy greens, etc.
  • Eat complex carbs. Consider eating oatmeal instead of a croissant for breakfast.
  • Increase your iron intake. Consider eating steak, tuna, salmon, eggs, spinach, broccoli, or kale.
  • Adjust your physical activity. Start slow and work your way up to your comfort level.
  • Purchase a portable oxygen tank from grocery stores or gas stations to help if you’re out of breath.
  • Pack for the sun. Remember that the sun is more powerful in Denver. It can feel much warmer than the actual temperature. If you plan to be outside, bring sunscreen and a hat.
  • Make sure you get adequate sleep every night.
  • Monitor alcohol and caffeine intake during your first few days in Denver.
  • Use medication if needed. Diamox can prevent and reduce symptoms of altitude sickness.
