In summary, coaches and trainers should be aware of the risks associated with sickle cell trait and take appropriate measures to prevent exertional sickling and other complications. This includes encouraging proper hydration, gradual acclimation to exercise, recognizing symptoms, and providing appropriate medical care.
Hydration is key in preventing rhabdomyolysis because it helps to flush out these harmful substances from the body and prevent their accumulation in the kidneys. Adequate hydration can also help prevent muscle breakdown by providing the muscles with the necessary fluids and nutrients to function properly during physical activity.
