Dr. Hew's research was recently highlighted in Hormone and Metabolic Research Issue for October 2013
Although bone has been shown to act as a "sodium reservoir" to buffer
severe plasma sodium derangements in animals, recent data have suggested
a similar function in humans. The authors of this study aimed to explore
if acute changes in bone mineral content were associated with changes in
plasma sodium concentration in runners participating in a 161 km
mountain footrace. The results suggest that sodium status and bone
density may be inter-related during endurance exercise and should be
considered in future investigations of athletic osteopenia. Read more
