Fluid intake and changes in limb volumes in male ultra-marathoners: does fluid overload lead to peripheral oedema?


An increase in body mass due to oedema has been previously described. The aim of this study was to investigate a potential association between both fluid and electrolyte intake and the formation of peripheral oedemas. Fluid and electrolyte intakes and the changes in limb volumes in 50 male 100-km ultra-marathoners were measured. Pre- and post-race serum… (More)
