Every organ and system in the body is affected by physical activity and exercise, not least among them the endocrine system. In Sports Endocrinology, leading physicians and researchers in sports medicine comprehensively review what is known about how physical activity effects the endocrine system, and what in turn are the effects of the hormonal responses evoked on the 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, from the effect of exercise on puberty and growth, to the hormonal regulation of fluid homeostasis, substrate metabolism, and energy balance. A substantial section is devoted to the exercising female, and the influence of exercise-driven hormonal changes on the menstrual cycle, contraceptive use, pregnancy, and menopause. Also discussed are the role of hormones in the development of "exercise euphoria," as well as their effects on athletic performance and their consequences for long-term health.
Comprehensive and authoritative, Sports Endocrinology constitutes a major new reference source critically integrating what is known about the complex interactions of the endocrine system resulting from physical activity. All physicians and clinical investigators treating those active in sports today will find it of high value in their daily practice and research.
