Among the potential risks of strenuous exercise is a rare but serious condition known as Rhabdomyolysis. Rhabdomyolysis is a medical disorder that harms the kidneys. The disease results from the toxicity of destroyed muscle cells. A pigment that contains Iron, called myoglobin, that exists in skeletal muscle enters the bloodstream after the muscle suffers damage. The kidneys have difficulty filtering the myoglobin out of the bloodstream, because it blocks the structures within the kidney, which can result in serious kidney damage or kidney failure. Additionally, the dead skeletal muscle can cause large shifts in fluid from the bloodstream into the muscle, which reduces the relative fluid volume of the body and can lead to shock and reduced blood flow to the kidneys.
This condition has many causes, among them are:
Severe exertion such as marathon running or calisthenics
Ischemia or necrosis of the muscles (as may occur with arterial occlusion or other conditions)
Use or overdose of drugs-especially cocaine, amphetamines, statins, heroin, or PCP
Heat intolerance and/or heatstroke
Alcoholism (with subsequent muscle tremors)
Low phosphate levels
Rhabdomyolysis affects about one out of 10,000 people in the United States, with slighter higher incidence in men. Rhabdomyolysis accounts for an estimated eight to fifteen percent of cases of acute renal failure. About five percent of rhabdomyolysis cases result in death.
There is a wealth of information on the internet about Rhabdomyolysis. http://www.sportwaiver.com/do-you-know-about-rhabdomyolysis-it-is-a-must/
We strongly recommend that you review and evaluate this information and discuss the implications of this disease with your Physician prior to signing this release and participating in any strenuous physical activity.
