The human body when subjected to heavy loads of physical training suffers numerous modifications to adapt to stress. Various systems are directly and indirectly affected, we can mention the cardio respiratory system as the one that suffers the most modifications when we are facing an intense physical load. Another system that modifies and of which we will explain in this paper is the endocrine system, specifically the thyroid gland who suffers some changes. This paper aims to demonstrate and… 

Responses of Uric Acid, Glucose, Thyroid Hormones and Liver Enzymes to Aerobic and Combined Exercises in University Students

It was determined that both aerobic and combined exercises had effects on biochemical parameters (thyroid hormones, liver enzymes, Uric acid and glucose) and it can be said that combined exercises may be more effective than aerobic exercises.

Effects of aerobic exercise on thyroid hormonal change responses among adolescents with intellectual disabilities

It is concluded that aerobic exercise had an impact on the change in the plasma level concentration of thyroid and thyroid stimulating hormones in adolescents with intellectual disabilities.

Voluntary Exercise-Induced Activation of Thyroid Axis and Reduction of White Fat Depots Is Attenuated by Chronic Stress in a Sex Dimorphic Pattern in Adult Rats

Chronic stress interferes with metabolic effects produced by exercise, such as loss of WAT mass, coincident with dampening of HPT activity, in conclusion.

Effects of exercise on thyroid hormones in children and adolescents with thyroid function disorders: A Systematic Review

This review does not provide sufficient evidence stating that exercise results in changes of thyroid function returning to normal, which requires further higher-quality studies to strengthen the review’s findings.

Association between lifestyle and thyroid dysfunction: a cross-sectional epidemiologic study in the She ethnic minority group of Fujian Province in China

Within the Chinese She ethnic minority, associations between different lifestyle factors and the incidence of different thyroid diseases are found and exercise and maintaining a healthy weight might have a beneficial effect on thyroid health.

Peripheral thyroid hormone metabolism suppression is observed, and the result is a hormonal status similar to that of euthyroid sick syndrome (ESS), with suppression of T3 and elevation of rT3 plasma levels, one mechanism proposed involves exercise-activated pathways participating in the pathogenesis of ESS.

The effect of acute exercise session on thyroid hormone economy in rats.

The results demonstrate that decreased liver D1 and BAT D2 might be involved in the decreased T(4)-to-T(3) conversion detected after an exercise session on the treadmill.

Free leptin index and thyroid function in male highly trained athletes.

Male, elite athletes had lower TSH-FT(3) ratio and FLI than controls while FLI was independently associated with TSH (FT) ratio supporting the hypothesis that the level of biologically active leptin is involved in the adaptive response of thyroid function in professional athletes.

Exercise intensity and its effects on thyroid hormones.

Maximal aerobic exercise greatly affects the level of circulating thyroid hormones, and exercise performed at the anaerobic threshold caused the most prominent changes in the amount of any hormone values.

Effects of prolonged training on serum thyrotropin and thyroid hormones in elite strength athletes.

It was concluded that in elite strength athletes, intensive training with one training session per day does not lead to major changes in pituitary-thyroid function, but only to minor physiological responses well within the normal range.

Respostas hormonais ao exercício

The study concludes that physical activity promotes changes in the rates of production and secretion in almost all of these hormones.

The physiologic effects of fitness training on various endocrine systems and provides clinical information about specific endocrine disturbances in athlete women are reviewed.

Exercise, skeletal muscle and inflammation: ARE-binding proteins as key regulators in inflammatory and adaptive networks.

A general introduction into the role of inflammation in the adaptation of skeletal muscle to exercise and potential roles of ARE-binding proteins in skeletal muscle tissue in general and specifically exercise-induced skeletal muscle remodeling is given.

Return to play issues must be addressed when implementing treatment strategies and monitoring serial laboratory values on a case-by-case basis.

Thyroid hormones and mortality risk in euthyroid individuals: the Kangbuk Samsung health study.

In a large cohort of euthyroid men and women, FT4 and FT3 levels within the normal range were inversely associated with the risk of all-cause mortality and cancer mortality, particularly liver cancer mortality.
