MARATHON CARDIAC ARRESTS
We do not diagnose disease or recommend a dietary supplement for the treatment of disease. You should share this information with your physician who can determine what nutrition, disease and injury treatment regimen is best for you. You can search this site or the web for topics of interest that I may have written (use Dr Simone and topic).

In 2012, close to 2 million people ran in long distance races in the US. Over the last ten years, of the 10.9 million marathon runners, 59 died: 40 in marathons, and 19 in half-marathons (New England Journal of Medicine 2012. 366:130-40). These numbers underestimate the actual numbers around the country. The mean age of runners with cardiac arrest was 42±13 years, and 51 of the 59 were men; 42 who died had a mean age of 39± 9 years. Causes of the cardiac arrests included: hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001243/), coronary artery disease, electrolyte imbalance, hyperthermia.
