Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport presented by Professor Louise Burke OAM, PhD, APD

The new IOC REDs conceptual and physiological models for health and performance

In 2023 the International Olympic Committee consensus statement on Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport was released. REDs is a syndrome relating to low energy availability relative to expenditure, which results in deleterious health and performance outcomes. We are well placed to consider REDs in our roles working with athletes and active individuals. 

Learn about: 

  • How low energy availability contributes to, but is not the same as, REDs
  • The criteria that should not be used to diagnose REDs 
  • Future plans to strengthen the REDs model 

The presentation covers: 

  • Get to know REDs with a summary of the 2023 update
  • Health and performance implications of REDs
  • The IOC REDs Severity/Risk Assessment tool
  • Underlying reasons for low energy availability in athletes
