Athletes and Iron Deficiency: Specific demands of female athletes | Sports Medicine | Scoop.it
Iron deficiency is a common problem for women athletes. Studies have routinely found that athletes, especially female athletes, are often iron-deficient or anemic.

Diabetes manual : Diabetes in Children & Adolescents: specific demands of children | Sports Medicine | Scoop.it

Children and young athletes who suffer from Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes have special considerations that need to be taken into account when exercising. They need to regulate their blood glucose (or sugar) levels so they can participate effectively. Each child will have a management plan to control low and high blood glucose levels. It is important that a coach or trainer knows the management plan for each child and allows for this in training, e.g. allowing breaks for food or rest.

 

Read the guidelines for exercise and diabetes and summarise the recommendations for young athletes.
