Summary

This study evaluates the effects of a structured exercise (The LFN-exercise protocol) program plus diet, on cerebral hemodynamics (cerebral blood flow) and hepatic hemodynamics (portal pressure), as well as on nutritional status (body composition and nutritional markers) in order to facilitate the prescription of exercise in patients with cirrhosis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The study of NUTRITION PROCESSES during EXERCISE and ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE as well as specific NUTRITIONAL REQUIREMENTS of ATHLETES and the relationship between NUTRITIONAL STATUS and NUTRITION DISORDERS in athletes.

Nutritional physiology related to EXERCISE or ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE.

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

Concepts involved with nutritional physiology, including categories of substances eaten for sustenance, nutritional phenomena and processes, eating patterns and habits, and measurable nutritional parameters.
