I've recently seen some articles about a form of injury that can be quite dangerous. This condition is known as rhabdomyolysis.
If you have worked hard after not weighing in a while or run for the first time in a long time, you are well aware of the muscle wound that can happen.
Sometimes, however, well trained people will go from one type of exercise to a new one and there is a chance they really bake their muscles badly and get this condition called rhabdomyolysis.
What is rhabdomyolysis?
Rashbiliolysis is the breakdown of muscle tissue that leads to the release of muscle fibers in the blood. These substances are harmful to the kidneys and often cause kidney damage. This means that kidneys can not remove waste and concentrated urine. In rare cases, rhabdomyolysis may even cause death.
As you can see from the picture on the right, kidneys have trouble cleaning up your toxins and muscle fibers and your urine will be brown in color.
This is very bad happening.
If you see this, make sure you go straight to an emergency room to adjust your electrolytes and to clean the blood, possibly by hemodialysis.
When the muscles are damaged, a protein called myoglobin is released into the bloodstream. It is then filtered out of the body by the kidneys. Myoglobin breaks down into substances that can damage kidney cells.
There are many reasons for this. Not only this idea is hard to press muscles, but also injuries or injuries, drug use such as cocaine and other stimulants, genetic muscular diseases, extreme body temperatures.
In fact, this issue was first discovered not in athletes, but in the victims of an earthquake from the early 20th century.
What does the research on rhabdomyolysis say?
First saw an article on the website today when I heard about this issue on the radio before a few mornings, the article was called Do you think to sign up for the spin class? Read this warning first. I know, this is classic fear, but here's how it started this article.
Lauren Peterson thought of getting a gym class would be a great way to get the shape. But after less than 15 minutes of intense butterfly he felt nauseous and almost passed out.
Two days later, the Bronx 33-year-old's urine had been extinguished and the muscles in their thighs became swollen and superficially painful.
The article is quite shocking to never want to take a fitness class but realistically this is not as common as you think about Spinners and other people who are taking shape, Rheumyolysis occurs in about 26,000 people per year in the United States.
The article that was mentioned in the radio news I heard a few days ago was what was published quite widely. Strong, repetitive exercise may cause rhabdomyolysis
Like many doctors, I also advised patients and readers to practice as part of a healthy lifestyle. Now, Dr. Maureen Brogan, an associate professor of medicine at New York Medical College, says intense, repetitive exercise can cause rhabdomyolysis. And, in rare cases, he can kill.
Brogan explains that when the muscles are damaged, he rejects myoglobin, a muscle protein linked to iron and oxygen, in the bloodstream. Excessive amounts of myoglobin can interfere with the kidney filtration system and cause serious damage.
Takeaways For athletes to avoid rhabdomyolysis
This is the kind of issue we should be worried about as the weather gets hotter and we are out to get more exercise? No, I do not think so, but it's always wise to make sure you're careful. Remember that you are a year older than last year and not just the muscles, but the connective tissues are probably weaker than last summer.
Another issue that emerged from this research was the idea of dehydration. I know that dehydration can pass quickly and if your muscles and organs are not well hydrated, you may be suffering from cramps and heat, as well as rhabdomyolysis.
Finally, one last thing that I think should be highlighted again, if you are in a very good shape and looking to try out a new sport or activity, remember that it is likely to push your body much harder, being able to recover. Try to avoid excessive sensitivity.
