The hidden dangers of RED-S with Isobel Ross

My conversation with Isobel Ross

Isobel is the host of Peak Endurance podcast and today she joins me to discuss Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (RED-S). It can be a very severe condition that is often unrecognised and can dramatically impact performance and risk of sickness and injury.

I scratched up on the most recent research around RED-S for Isobel and I to have a constructive discussion. Firstly, Isobel shares her own experience with RED-S and the detrimental outcomes. Then we chat about the risk factors, physical and psychological impacts, issues surrounding body image and pressures put on young adolescent age groups. Even if you are not within the young population, it is crucial to understand RED-S and recognise signs, symptoms and toxic environments which RED-S might manifest itself.
