The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has released a new consensus statement regarding relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S). This is an update on a consensus statement from 2014. “The syndrome of RED-S refers to: ‘impaired physiological functioning caused by relative energy deficiency, and includes but is not limited to impairments of metabolic rate, menstrual function, bone health, immunity, protein synthesis, and cardiovascular health.’… The IOC RED-S consensus authors have reconvened to provide an update summary of the interim scientific progress in the field of relative energy deficiency with the ultimate goal of stimulating advances in RED-S awareness, clinical application, and scientific research to address current gaps in knowledge.”
