RED-S is a relatively new idea that has been proposed to improve upon the female athlete triad model, and awareness of this condition is not widespread at this time. This lecture will include a discussion on both the female athlete triad and RED-S (relative energy deficiency in sport) to include components and health/performance implications as well as the role various providers play in identification and treatment of these syndromes.

Participants will be able to:

  • Define the Female Athlete Triad and describe the involved components.
  • Define RED-S and describe the involved components.
  • Discuss the performance-related impact of low energy availability in the athletic population.
