In this interview, we discuss RED-s. Relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S) is a syndrome in which disordered eating (or low energy availability), amenorrhoea/oligomenorrhoea, and decreased bone mineral density (osteoporosis and osteopenia) are present. RED-S is the broader, more comprehensive name for what was formerly known as female athlete triad (or simply the triad), which was a condition seen in females participating in sports that emphasize leanness or low body weight. As it was also seen in males, the name was changed to the comprehensive term RED-S.
RED-S is a serious illness with lifelong health consequences and can potentially be fatal.
RED-S is a serious mental and physical condition, so please be mindful of this when trying to help someone that you suspect has this condition. Feel free to message me for tips on how to talk with someone about this. Not that I am an expert, but having experienced it I may be able to help with suitable ways to approach the topic.
