Hello Everyone, I'm new to this site and am studying for the step1 USMLE. I have a question...

Goljan says that you need glucose to reabsorb Na. And in marathon runners they lose a hypotonic solution (which causes hypernatremia). My question is Why does the marathon runner drink gatorade which includes glucose AND sodium in its solution? Thanks.


Gatorade is the stuff, makes your brain works faster
