Cramping in athletes is often related to dehydration. That's why I was surprised to see this news today from Gatorade endorser Dwyane Wade. Apparently, according to the Miami Herald, Wade has been drinking too much.
Wade has been drinking a lot of fluids to prevent dehydration, which is at the root of his cramp problem, the paper said.
``The main thing is hopefully I don't drink too much Gatorade and too much water," Wade said. 'We're trying to get it to a point where I'm drinking just enough to keep myself hydrated so I don't have those problems again,'' Wade said.
