Re: Exercise Associated Hyponatremic Encephalopathy, Gatorade and the ACSM

I'd like to share this story (W/f safe) of Cynthia Lucero, who followed the 1996 Gatorade/ACSM recommendation to drink "as much as tolerable"

"Friends said Lucero drank large amounts of Gatorade and looked well for most of the April 16 race. She later began to falter, then collapsed after telling a friend that she felt dehydrated and rubber-legged. She died later at a hospital."
