Carbohydrate ingestion prior and during exercise attenuates exercise-induced interleukin-6. This investigation examined if an analogous effect was evident for interleukin-6 and hepcidin response when carbohydrates were ingested post-exercise. In a crossover design, 11 well-trained endurance athletes completed two experimental trials. Participants completed(More)
This investigation examined if a high carbohydrate (CHO) diet, maintained across a seven-day training period, could attenuate post-exercise interleukin-6 (IL-6) and serum hepcidin levels. Twelve endurance-trained male athletes completed two seven-day running training blocks whilst consuming either a high (8 g kg−1) versus a low (3 g kg−1) CHO isoenergetic(More)
To assess the influence of a simulated altitude exposure (~2,900 m above sea level) for a 3 h recovery period following intense interval running on post-exercise inflammation, serum iron, ferritin, erythropoietin, and hepcidin response. In a cross-over design, ten well-trained male endurance athletes completed two 8 × 3 min interval running sessions at 85 %(More)
This study explored the relationship between serum ferritin and hepcidin in athletes. Baseline serum ferritin levels of 54 athletes from the control trial of five investigations conducted in our laboratory were considered; athletes were grouped according to values <30 μg/L (SF<30), 30-50 μg/L (SF30-50), 50-100 μg/L (SF50-100), or >100 μg/L (SF>100).

To examine the effects of 24-h controlled carbohydrate intake on next day pre- and post-exercise inflammatory and hepcidin responses. In a crossover design, 12 well-trained endurance athletes (Ht 181.08 ± 7.68 cm; Wt 74.8 ± 11.5 kg, VO2peak 68.9 ± 7.2 ml kg−1 min−1) completed two experimental (2-day) trials. On day 1, participants completed a glycogen(More)
