Exercise Induced Electrolyte Imbalance

Exercise induced electrolyte imbalance: Everything you need to know

About

A condition that results in excessive depletion of electrolytes from the body through sweating and urination.

A study showed that around 4-7% of the ambulatory population is affected by Hyponatremia

- The condition is a result of the imbalance between sodium and water in the body.
- Medical assistance is required to treat it.
- Laboratory medical tests are required for diagnosis.
- Can be fatal.

Exercising gives you the urge to drink more water and, as a result, the sodium content in your body gets diluted. The diluted sodium content is depleted quickly due to frequent urination and sweating during exercise. This depletion creates an unhealthy condition in the body because sodium helps in regulating the amount of water present in and around the cells in the body.

Ages affected: less than 19 - common, 20 to 65- most common, above 65 - more common.
