What do we do when exercise that should be making us healthy and strong seems only to be making us sicker? Iron deficiency anaemia is one of those conditions that can be caused by frequent and strenuous excercise, which is why it is extremely common in athletes. Despite it’s prevalence, however, it can sometimes be difficult to spot through bloodwork and symptoms along. Naturopath Kate Smyth has first hand experience treating this condition in athletes, both as a clinician and from her own journey beginning as a causal runner to Olympic athlete in just eight short years. In this episode Kate shares her story, and takes us through the warning signs of iron deficiency anaemia in athletes, the most common causes, and the various treatment options available, particularly when treating elite athletes.
