The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has released a new consensus statement regarding the Female Athlete Triad. This new document replaces the 2005 IOC consensus statement and position stand on this topic. The goal of this document is to “provide guidelines to the athlete health support team to guide risk assessment, treatment and return-to-play decisions for affected athletes.” The major sections of the document discuss “relative energy deficiency in sport”, health and performance consequences of RED-S, male athletes, athletes of non-Caucasian ethnicity, athletes with disability, screening and diagnosis, treatment strategies of RED-S, clinical models for sport participation and return-to-play, and a series of recommendations.
