Re: Client can't get past throwing up.

I would agree that your client needs to see a doctor.
Do NOT suggest that he try anything to "buffer the lactic acid". If that is what needs to happen- a Doctor needs to be the one to supervise it. Trying to alter one's pH balance- could be asking for trouble.. big trouble..
just my two cents

Re: Client can't get past throwing up.

How is this client's hydration? If I go a couple of days with less than a half gallon of water for that day I will get pukie from a WOD. If I am hydrated properly this does not occur. It looks like you have adjusted the food and rest, but the hydration is another key factor for my diet and pukie.

Re: Client can't get past throwing up.

When I was in high school one of the guys on the wrestling team started to throw up regularly after practice. He started losing weight as well. After a couple of months he finally went to a doctor and found out that the was Type 1 diabetic. The workouts were doing something to his blood sugar/insulin levels and making him physically ill.

Your client really needs to be checked out by a doctor.

Re: Client can't get past throwing up.

I apologize for taking so long to respond to all this. Been busy and now without power and internet (hurricane IKE - borrowing internet right now).

The athlete in question is 19 years old, 6 ft, 150-nothing. No history of bulimia or illness that we know of and we know the family pretty well. We've looked at it from the psycho-sematic angle, dropped his workouts way back and got some "successes" but as soon as start upping the game again, even slightly, it happens again. We're pretty stumped.

A lot of suggestions for seeing a doctor here. Which kind I wonder?

Thanks for all the input though folks.

Probably be a while before I can check back in.

Pam

Re: Client can't get past throwing up.

If he has insurance, GP if he has really good insurance a Gastro md and or Cardio Md. He maybe has a vagus nerve issue that is overstimulating his vagus nerve which affects both GI tract and Cardio system.

Ever stop and think maybe the guy really doesnt want to work hard this?

You may know him and the family well, but you dont know what is in his head or persona.

Regardless, He Needs a work up.

Re: Client can't get past throwing up.

Thanks for all the feedback.
He gets regular physicals (yearly) and we had a pretty good laugh about the potential of bulemia/heart problems/etc. Hydration has been key over the past couple weeks. He also works in a very physical, outside job and acknowledged that he's probably not drinking enough water. He's upped his intake and not even gotten an upset stomach much less thrown up in the past several workouts.
He's happy.
I'm happy.
Thanks!
