Sweat Testing in Wichita, Kansas
Doug first came across PH in 2014, when he was preparing to speak at a conference on Exercise Associated Hyponatremia (EAH). He was part of the international expert panel there discussing hyponatremia in sport and helped build a new expert consensus on the management of EAH.
As a 'Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Physician' Doug was included in the panel to address the role that the genetics of CF may or may not play in EAH.
Doug's personal interest in EAH began in 2008 when, during the run of his first full Ironman (he's now into double figures!), he found himself diagnosed with EAH at an on-course medical station. Eventually, he was able to finish and was soon immersing himself in the research on this topic.
This experience led to a number of research projects on EAH, resulting in the EAH Consensus project. This, in turn, led to more interaction with Precision Fuel & Hydration that has proceeded to some collaborative research on salt loss in both athletes and those with CF - which you can read more about here.
Becoming a Precision Fuel & Hydration Sweat Test Centre is a natural extension of both the work Doug does in his day job and his keen interest in endurance sports.
Please feel free to contact Doug with any questions or to schedule a Sweat Test.
