Abstract

Gastrointestinal (GIT) symptoms appear to be very common in endurance athletes. Previous studies have only documented frequency rates of GIT symptoms during sports events, and usually only in a single sport. Differences in methodology between studies make comparisons on the incidence and risk factors of GIT symptoms in different sports difficult. The aims of this study were to document the true incidence (symptoms/1 000 hours of participation) and risk factors of gastrointestinal symptoms in six endurance sports.
