Waving the REDs Flag

Waving the REDs Flag

Waving the RED-S Flag 

In this session, we will delve into Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (REDs), explaining and detailing the short and long-term health and performance implications associated with this condition. We will explore the prevalence of REDs across various sports and suggest that this physiological imbalance arises from a combination of bio-psycho-social factors.

Dr. Emma Ross will present data on the prevalence of REDs within sports, emphasising the significant risk it poses to our duty of care towards athletes. She will also provide insights into the current status of screening and diagnosis for REDs.

Emma will be joined by Maddie Dunn, Sports Director at the IFSC, who will share her experiences in dealing with REDs in practice at the International Federation of Sport Climbing which has become the first International Federation to introduce comprehensive regulations related to RED-s. Additionally Bobby Clay, a former international athlete whose career in athletics was cut short- after she was diagnosed with osteoporosis at the age of 19 will also be part of the panel.
