Impact of physical activity and exercise training on health-related biomarkers in different sedentary populations

Regardless of age, regular physical activity is one of the most important factors for health and well-being, as it is effective in preventing non-communicable diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. One of the main causes of non-communicable diseases is a sedentary behaviour, not only in adults, but also in children. The sedentary behaviour leads to negative physiological consequences early in life such as diminished muscle mass, increased fat mass, and metabolic comorbidities. This thesis investigates the effect of different types of physical activity in sedentary participants with prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, young healthy adults, and children with cerebral palsy.

Acute Response to One Bout of Dynamic Standing Exercise on Blood Glucose and Blood Lactate Among Children and Adolescents With Cerebral Palsy Who are Nonambulant

Twenty-four participants with cerebral palsy who are nonambulant performed 30 minutes of dynamic standing exercise using a motorized device enabling assisted passive movements in an upright weight-bearing position. Capillary blood samples were taken from the fingertip for measurement of blood glucose and blood lactate at rest and at the end of exercise.

A Three Year Case Study with a Multidisciplinary Treatment of Relative Energy Deficiency and Anorexia in a Female Tennis Player

Tennis is an all-year racket sport requiring qualities such as speed, agility, flexibility, and endurance, as competitions may last up to five hours. Elite players have an estimated daily need of carbohydrate (CHO) between 6-10 g/kg to sustain high amounts of training and frequent competitions. Low energy availability (LEA), over time, may impair both health and performance

Changes in Vitamin D Status in Overweight Middle-Aged Adults with or without Impaired Glucose Metabolism in Two Consecutive Nordic Summers

Sun exposure is the main driver of vitamin D synthesis. High latitude, obesity, and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are all risk factors for vitamin D deficiency. However, the seasonal variation in vitamin D concentrations (25[OH]D) in such populations before and after sun exposure during the summer is unknown. Therefore, we investigated 25[OH]D status before and after two consecutive summers in high latitude and its associations with body fat, sex, and glucose metabolism.

Effects of Nordic walking on cardiovascular risk factors in overweight individuals with type 2 diabetes, impaired or normal glucose tolerance​

Physical activity remains a valuable prevention for metabolic disease. The effects of Nordic walking on cardiovascular risk factors were determined in overweight individuals with normal or disturbed glucose regulation.

Effects of a 16-Week Digital Intervention on Sports Nutrition Knowledge and Behavior in Female Endurance Athletes with Risk of Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (REDs)

Female endurance athletes are considered a high-risk group for developing Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport (REDs). Due to the lack of educational and behavioral intervention studies, targeting and evaluating the effects of the practical daily management of REDs, we developed the Food and nUtrition for Endurance athletes-a Learning (FUEL) program, consisting of 16 weekly online lectures and individual athlete-centered nutrition counseling every other week.

Preventing Disordered Eating in Teenage Ballet Students: Evaluation of DancExcellent, a Combined CBT and Nutrition Education Intervention

Disordered eating (DE) behaviors are relatively common among high-level dancers, especially in classical ballet. At the same time, interventions aimed at reducing DE behaviors in this population are scarce.
