Overtraining syndrome research
NEW research has found that the prevalence of equine stress-related illnesses such as overtraining syndrome is increasing. 
Until now no diagnostic test has been available to determine the syndrome, but researchers at Utrecht University in the Netherlands have discovered a new method using measurements of nocturnal growth hormone secretions.
