We evaluated bone turn over markers, cortisol and parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels in male athletes after 245 km of marathon running.

Osteocalcin levels were significantly decreased from 4.6 microg/lit to 3.8 microg/lit (p < 0.05). Activity of b-ALP was significantly decreased from 66 U/lit to 61.5 U/lit (p < 0.05). PICP levels… CONTINUE READING
