Did you know sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in young exercising athletes?
Athletic heart syndrome, (AHS) also known as athlete’s heart, is a condition commonly seen in sports medicine, in which the human heart is enlarged, and the resting heart rate is lower than normal. Athlete’s heart is common in athletes who routinely exercise more than an hour a day, and occurs primarily in endurance athletes, though it can occasionally arise in heavy weight trainers. The condition is generally considered benign, but may occasionally hide a serious medical condition, or may even be mistaken for one. Athlete’s heart most often does not have any physical symptoms, although an indicator would be a consistently low resting heart rate. Athletes with AHS often do not realize they have the condition unless they undergo specific medical tests.
The Do It For Kahlin Foundation’s mission is to raise awareness of AHS and help young athletes transition from high school to college. DIFKFoundation.org is a leading source of information and assistance for the community & student athletes of the State of Georgia, Clayton County area. You can help by sharing our mission and contact information, donating and/or volunteering.
