Eichner, Edward R.
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v17 n5 p128-33,136,138,140 May 1989
Describes the scope and importance of gastrointestinal bleeding in runners and other athletes, discussing causes, sites, and implications of exercise-related bleeding. Practical tips to mitigate the problem, potentially more troublesome in women because of lower iron stores, are presented (e.g., gradual conditioning and avoidance of prerace aspirin intake).
