Background to your sodium loss
Your sodium concentration
What to do with your value
What does the value say and why should I know my sodium loss?
The spectrum of salt concentrations in the sweat of athletes measured so far ranges from 200-2300mg/l sweat - depending on intensity, individual paramaters, outdoor temperature, ...
If you lose more than 3500mg of sodium, symptoms of weakness and muscle cramps will appear. If you lose more than 5000mg, you may experience increased tendency to collapse, severe muscle cramps, dizziness and vomiting. Fortunately, you can counteract these symptoms relatively easily if you continuously supply yourself with sodium during intense effort.
As example: If your value is 790 mg/l you should - simply said - intake 790 mg sodium with 1 liter fluid or substitute 790 mg with bars or gels after losing 1 liter of sweat.
