We are pleased to announce the publication of our manuscript in the Special Issue “Hydration and Nutrition Considerations for Sports and Physical Activity” of Nutrients – journal of human nutrition published monthly online by MDPI.

The aim of our research was to:

Construct a theoretical framework of the mechanisms that explain how physically demanding work in heat could lead to kidney injury, based on an extensive review of heat and exercise research literature, and subsequently put the theory to the test with original data obtained previously in our intervention studies of sugarcane workers in El Salvador and Nicaragua, while placing these data in the context of results from other studies conducted in Mesoamerica.

You can visit the complete article here: Pathophysiological Mechanisms by which Heat Stress Potentially Induces Kidney Inflammation and Chronic Kidney Disease in Sugarcane Workers, and check out our lay summary.
