Definition of Hyponatremia:
Hyponatremia refers to a low concentration of sodium in the blood and occurs when athletes sweat profusely and then drink copious amounts of pure water to replenish fluids, without adequately replacing electrolytes. It occurs more frequently during endurance events that last longer than several hours, where athletes attempting to rehydrate over several hours of exertion may end up compounding the problem without realizing it.
