OBJECTIVE In men, hypoandrogenism is associated with features of the metabolic syndrome, but the role of sex hormones in the pathogenesis of the metabolic syndrome and diabetes is not well… Expand
Physical activity in prevention and treatment of the metabolic syndrome.
Randomised controlled trials have shown that exercise training has a mild or moderate favourable effect on many metabolic and cardiovascular risk factors that constitute or are related to the… Expand
Exercise training modulates heat shock protein response in diabetic rats.
