OBJECTIVES To examine the construct validity of the International FItness Scale (IFIS) (ie, self-reported fitness) against objectively measured physical fitness in women with fibromyalgia and in healthy women; and to study the test-retest reliability of the IFIS in women with fibromyalgia. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Fibromyalgia patient(More)
OBJECTIVE This population-based cross-sectional study aimed to characterize the association of different components of physical fitness with pain levels, pain-related catastrophizing, and chronic pain self-efficacy in women with fibromyalgia (FM). METHODS A total of 468 women with FM participated. The experience of pain was assessed with different tools(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to determine the ability of a set of physical fitness tests to discriminate presence or absence of fibromyalgia in women. METHODS The sample comprised 487 women with fibromyalgia (52.1 ± 8 yr) and 250 control women (49.3 ± 9 yr). We assessed physical fitness using the arm curl, 30-s chair stand, handgrip strength, 8-ft up and go,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to validate the modified 2010 ACR preliminary criteria for FM in a Spanish population. METHODS Five hundred and seventy-nine (550 women) FM and 294 (240 women) control participants were enrolled in the study. FM patients were previously diagnosed by a rheumatologist. All participants underwent both the 1990 ACR criteria(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of the consumption of two cloudy apple juices with different polyphenol and vitamin C contents on antioxidant status, cardiometabolic and inflammation markers in healthy young adults. METHODS Twenty subjects, aged 21-29 years, completed a randomized crossover study. At each 4-week(More)
To assess the association of different components of physical fitness with HRQoL in early postmenopause and to test which physical fitness components are independently associated with the physical and mental components of HRQoL. The final sample comprised 67 early postmenopausal women. Physical fitness was assessed with the Senior Fitness Test battery(More)
The present study aimed: (1) to test the associations of overall physical fitness and subjective well-being with fibromyalgia severity and (2) to determine whether the combination of overall physical fitness and subjective well-being is associated with fibromyalgia severity among adult women patients. This cross-sectional study included 424 participants(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the association between physical fitness and fibromyalgia (FM) severity in women with FM as well as to assess whether different fitness components present an independent relation with FM severity. DESIGN Population-based cross-sectional study. SETTING University facilities and FM associations. PARTICIPANTS Women with FM (N=444).(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is a relatively new surgical technique for the treatment of morbid obesity. It is unclear whether the volume of the gastric remnant can expand after surgery as a result of intraluminal pressure maintained over time. If this were the case, the increased volume could affect weight loss and the improvement in(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the association of cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) with pressure pain sensitivity and clinical pain in women with fibromyalgia (FM). Thirty-one women with FM were included in the study. Pressure pain sensitivity was assessed with an electronic pressure dolorimeter. The average pressure pain threshold (PPT) from the(More)
