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.”
