MAYWOOD, Ill. – In recent years, at least 14 deaths of marathon runners, football players and other athletes have been attributed to exercise-associated hyponatremia, a condition that results from drinking too much water or sports drinks.

But there’s an easy way to prevent hyponatremia, said Loyola University Medical Center sports medicine physician James Winger, MD. Simply put, drink only when you’re thirsty.

Dr. Winger serves on a 17-member international expert panel that has published new guidelines on preventing and treating hyponatremia.

The athletes didn't squander the opportunity, especially Ryan Hill and Nicole Tully, who won their first ever national outdoor titles with fast sprint finishes.
