BMD in elite female triathletes is related to isokinetic peak torque without any association to sex hormone concentrations

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Female endurance athletes suffering from low energy availability and reproductive hormonal disorders are at risk of low BMD. Muscle forces acting on bone may have a reverse site-specific effect. Therefore we wanted to test how BMD in female elite triathletes was associated to isokinetic peak torque (IPT) and reproductive hormone concentrations (RHC). A possible effect of oral contraceptives (OCON's) is taken into consideration.
