Since there are only a few papers concerning hormonal changes in people not accustomed to sauna exposure and even less with women as the subjects, the main goal of the research was to analyze the basic responses of the hormonal system in women. Women were subjected to single and repeated thermal stress in Finnish sauna. Ten healthy female between the ages of 19-21 volunteered to participate in the experiment. All selected volunteers shared similar anthropometrical parameters. Volunteers… Expand
Changes in the lipid profile of blood serum in women taking sauna baths of various duration.
TLDR
After 2 weeks of repeated sauna session some changes in total cholesterol and concentration of LDLC were observed, while concentration of HDLC increased after 7th sauna bath in group I, and further research on the influence of sauna on fat metabolism is needed. Expand
Endocrine Effects of Repeated Hot Thermal Stress and Cold Water Immersion in Young Adult Men
TLDR
Repeated use of Finnish sauna induces a significant decrease in COR concentrations, but does not cause significant changes in TES, DHEA-S, or PRL levels. Expand
Sauna-Induced Body Mass Loss in Young Sedentary Women and Men
TLDR
The proposed equations for calculating BML based on a person's BMI can be useful in estimating the amount of fluids that should be replenished by both men and women during a visit to a dry sauna. Expand
Endocrine effects of sauna bath
TLDR
Adaptation to regular sauna use plays an important role in the responses, which attenuate upon frequent exposure, and the hormone responses are short-lived, normalizing soon after sauna exposure during the recovery. Expand
Correlations between Repeated Use of Dry Sauna for 4 x 10 Minutes, Physiological Parameters, Anthropometric Features, and Body Composition in Young Sedentary and Overweight Men: Health Implications
TLDR
Repeated use of Finnish sauna induces significant changes in the physiological parameters of young sedentary overweight men, and these changes are intensified during successive treatments. Expand
[Changes in selected physiological indicators and thermal stress assessment under the influence of baths in a dry and wet sauna in young healthy women].
TLDR
Heat exposure in the wet sauna creates a greater burden for young women's bodies than the same dry sauna treatment, and the changes observed in the examined traits were higher than in men subjected to similar thermal loads. Expand
RECREATIONAL-HEALTH USE OF SAUNAS BY 19-20-YEAR OLD POLISH UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
TLDR
It was observed that sauna bathing exerted a highly relaxing and calming influence on the vast majority of students, which may significantly contribute to improving mental health of university students, and should be promoted and included in the curriculum of physical education. Expand
Sauna-induced body mass loss in physically inactive young women and men
Summary Study aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between basic somatic features (body mass and height) and body mass loss in physically inactive young women and men exposedExpand
BODY MASS LOSS IN DRY SAUNA AND HEART RATE RESPONSE TO HEAT STRESS
Rev Bras Med Esporte – Vol. 24, No 4 – Jul/Ago, 2018 ABSTRACT Objectives: The aim of the study was to determine the effects of sauna-induced heat exposure on body mass loss (BML) and itsExpand
COMPARISON OF PHYSIOLOGICAL REACTIONS AND PHYSIOLOGICAL STRAIN IN HEALTHY MEN UNDER HEAT STRESS IN DRY AND STEAM HEAT SAUNAS
TLDR
It can be concluded that due to high humidity and reduction of thermoregulation mechanisms, the wet sauna is more stressful for the organism than the dry sauna, where the temperature is higher with low humidity. Expand

Some cardiovascular and metabolic effects of repeated sauna bathing.
TLDR
Serum K, Na and Fe were significantly decreased on the 3rd and 7th day indicating that special attention should be given to the electrolyte balance in long-lasting intense heat exposure. Expand
Sex differences in endocrine response to hyperthermia in sauna.
TLDR
Hyperthermia induced by sauna exposure resulted in a more pronounced neuroendocrine activation in women compared with men, and it is evident that repeated blood sampling is necessary to reveal the sauna-induced activation of some hormonal systems. Expand
Endocrine effects of repeated sauna bathing.
TLDR
The release of prolactin in females was also high and may be associated with the transient amenorrhoea that occurred in five out of seven subjects after the experiment, and the increased release of Prolactin and perhaps that of GH may be related to the heat-exposure-induced dehydration. Expand
Change in hormones reflecting sympathetic activity in the Finnish sauna.
TLDR
Plasma renin activity values correlated positively with 12-hour urinary VMA excretion and negatively with 6- hour urinary sodium excretion before and after Sauna, suggesting the role of catecholamines and sodium depletion in renin response in Sauna. Expand
Influence of the menstrual cycle on the sweating response measured by direct calorimetry in women exposed to warm environmental conditions
TLDR
It was concluded that the internal set point temperature of resting women exposed to warm environmental conditions shifted to a higher value during the L phase compared to the F phase of the menstrual cycle; and that the magnitude of the shift corresponded to the difference in internal temperature observed in neutral environmental conditions between the two phases. Expand
Characterization of growth hormone release in response to external heating. Comparison to exercise induced release.
TLDR
The results indicate that exercise per se does not stimulate GH-secretion, indeed it may inhibit the response expected to be evoked by the exercise-induced rise in temperature, and that it is core and not cutaneous temperature which modulated GH release. Expand
Cortisol as a sensitive index of heat-intolerance
TLDR
Circulating cortisol is shown to be a very sensitive index of heat stress heralding the onset of poor tolerance of severe climates and the relation between concomitant levels of cortisol and rectal temperatures, in fit men, is affected by additional factors. Expand
Response of plasma endorphins, prolactin and catecholamines in women to intense heat in a sauna
SummaryConcentrations of immunoreactiveβ-endorphin (irβ-E), corticotropin, cortisol, prolactin and catecholamines in plasma were followed in 11 healthy women during and after exposure to intense heatExpand
Response of plasma prolactin to changes in ambient temperature and humidity in man.
TLDR
The data suggest an association between ambient temperature and plasma PRL in man which is not associated with changes in water and electrolyte status, except in the cold where serum K+ rose 0.6 meq/liter (P < 0.01). Expand
Heat exposure elevates plasma immunoreactive growth hormone-releasing hormone levels in man.
TLDR
It is concluded that heat exposure-stimulated GH release in young adult men is mediated by GHRH, but in older men, G HRH and GH responses do not occur. Expand
