Interest in hydration science, extending beyond performance implications, has grown over the past decade.
Today, the field of hydration science includes topics around water and fluid intake habits, occupational health and safety, kidney health, and the long-term implications of chronic water-saving.
Healthy Hydration for Health Academy.
This pre-conference entitled “Hydration For Health Academy: Historical perspectives and emerging evidence of the importance of hydration beyond performance” will cover:
- A historical perspective on the origins of hydration research, its evolution to cover questions around hydration in daily life, and accurate assessment of water and fluid intake;
- Dehydration mechanisms and impact from three health perspectives: Mesoamerican Nephropathy, a renal disease resulting from recurrent heat stress, intense physical activity at work and repeated cycles of dehydration ; dehydration associated with exercise and heat stress linked to oxidative stress and DNA damage; and exercise and cardiac output at high intensity linked to renal injury.
