Bone-to-muscle endocrine axis modulating adaptation to exercise in athletes of mountain cycling in a Portuguese Marathon

de Alonso Isanete Alves , Matos Andreia , Gil Angela , Cardoso Carlos , Sardinha Luis Bettencourt , Bicho Manuel

Introduction: Besides the benefits of low-to-high intensity physical activity (PA) on metabolism, it is currently emerging that excessive PA can be deleterious with serious implications not only in muscle but also, bone remodeling. Despite recent findings remains still unclear and controversial, we hypothesize that exercise of impact, like mountain cycling, beyond influencing the metabolic and skeletal profile, represents an important model of profoundly changes in bone metabo...

Mountain cycling ultramarathon effects on neuromuscular, immune and stress biomarkers

Alonso Isanete , Matos Andreia , Ribeiro Ricardo , Gil Angela , Cardoso Carlos , Bicho Manuel

Introduction: The long-term mountain cycling effects on cognitive development for better performance, are still not fully elucidated. Notwithstanding, this type of exercise may induce a link with energy metabolism and sympathetic nervous system. We previously observed that a mountain cycling ultramarathon, induced a comodulatory influence of genetic- and exercise-associated factors on inflammatory and haemoglobin catabolic marker haptoglobin. We hypothesised that inflammatory ...

Genetic polymorphisms may modulate bone and energy metabolism of mountain cycling ultramarathon athlete’s

Alonso Isanete , Matos Andreia , Ribeiro Ricardo , Gil Angela , Cardoso Carlos , Bicho Manuel

Introduction: The interaction between bone and energy metabolism may be enhanced in high demanding physical activities. We hypothesize that genetic background may modulate the exercise-associated bone and energy responses of athletes participating of a mountain cycling ultramarathon.Methods: Fifty-five non-professional athletes (mean age 44.8±7.1 years) participating in a 9-day mountain cycling ultramarathon (TransPortugal) were evaluated. Before an...

Characterization of neuroinflammatory makers and related-genetic variants in athletes from a long duration ultramarathon mountain cycling race and endurance exercises

Matos Andreia , Matinho Miguel , Fontes Miguel , Santos Ana Carolina , Ângela Gil , Cardoso Carlos , Bicho Manuel , Alonso Isanete

IntroductionExercise induces changes in the inflammatory profile that can comprehend changes during and immediately after exercise with long-term effects. This inflammatory profile could impact the cognitive function and so, the performance.ObjectivesCompare the inflammatory status from long duration and endurance exercises and correlate it with an immune and neuroendocrine genetic profile.<p class="abste...

Relationship of serum TSH with BMI, weight and HOMA-IR in euthyroid obese subjects

Garrido Susana , Caldas Ana Rita , Pereira Teresa , Carvalho Andre , Amaral Claudia , Freitas Claudia , Carvalho Rui , Bravo Fatima , Oliveira Jose Carlos , Cardoso Helena

Introduction: Most obese subjects have a normal thyroid function. Despite that, serum TSH seems to be slightly higher in this population, with a positive correlation with the degree of obesity.Objective: Evaluation of the relationship of serum TSH with BMI, weight, and HOMA-IR in euthyroid obese subjectsMethods: Three hundred obese subjects attending an Obesity Outpatient Clinic and submitted to bariatric surgery between January 20...

Gastric banding vs gastric bypass: evolution of anthropometric parameters and related comorbidities during the 2 years after surgery

Caldas Ana Rita , Silva Ana Maia , Amaral Claudia , Freitas Claudia , Carvalho Andre Couto , Silva Isabel , Pichel Fernando , Silva Carla , Marcos Mario , Santos Jorge , Nogueira Carlos , Cardoso Maria Helena

Introduction: Bariatric surgery has proved to be effective in the management of morbid obesity. Our purpose was to compare the results obtained with adjustable gastric banding (GB) and Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) during 2 years of follow-up after surgery, with regard to anthropometric parameters and related comorbidities.Methods: We evaluated prospectively patients who underwent GB and RYGB between 2004 and 2010 and compared the evolution of anthropo...
