Glucose and Lipid Metabolism in Adolescents

2014-07-23 21:12:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A 12 wk aerobic exercise program will reduce visceral, hepatic and intramyocellular fat accumulation and improve insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism in obese sedentary Hispanic adolescents.

Description

Lean and Obese post pubertal adolescents perform an aerobic exercise program 30 minx4/week at a heart rate corresponding to at least 70% of that obtained at VO2 peak. The exercise program is preceded and followed by a 7 d diet delivered by the metabolic research kitchen (identical on both study occasions); metabolic studies (identical on both study occasions) including 24h calorimetry, measurements of glucose and lipid metabolism and insulin sensitivity and secretion using compounds labelled with stable i.e. non radioactive isotopes and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.Fat mass and lean body mass are measured by DXA and visceral/subcutaneous, hepatic and intramyocellular fat by MRI/MRS. Since we want to specifically determine the effects of exercise, there is no intent of weight loss. The subjects are weighed twice a week to assure weight stability.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
