  • Abstract: In general, physical exercise appears to have favorable effects on the skeleton. However, a few recent reports have described negative effects, including reduced bone density (BMD) and high bone turnover in runners. The aim of our study was to compare endurance runners to controls with respect to BMD at different sites and ultrasound transmission through the peripheral skeleton, and to use PTH, total serum calcium, and biochemical markers of bone metabolism as a complement in… CONTINUE READING
