Expert physicians and researchers in sports medicine comprehensively review what is known about how such activity effects the endocrine system and how in turn these evoked hormonal responses affect many other organs and systems of the body. Topics range from the various endocrine pathways that are altered by exercise, to the effect of hormones on performance. Other topics include the effect of exercise on puberty and growth and the hormonal regulation of fluid homeostasis, substrate metabolism, and energy balance. A substantial part of the book is devoted to the exercising female, and the influence of exercise-driven hormonal changes on the menstrual cycle, contraceptive use, pregnancy, and menopause. Comprehensive and authoritative, Sports Endocrinology constitutes a major new reference source that critically integrates what is known about the complex interaction of the endocrine system in the sports context. It will prove immensely valuable to all physicians and clinical investigators treating those active in sports today.
The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
This book covers the explosive field studying the effects of sport on the hormonal system. Organ systems are addressed as well as the most important endocrine functions including reproduction, bone metabolism, the adrenal axis and energy metabolism. Methodological considerations are covered such as the importance of acute versus chronic changes and the metabolic issues related to these changes. Major pathological processes are reviewed as well as general therapeutic approaches to the treatment of sport-induced endocrine diseases, thus making this an essential reference for endocrinologists, internists and all physicians treating athletes.
