The relationship between resting thyroid hormone concentrations and exercise muscle metabolism was examined among eumenorrheic endurance-trained (n = 11), amenorrheic endurance-trained (n = 8), and eumenorrheic nonathletic (n = 13) subjects. Muscle metabolism was assessed with 31Phosphorous magnetic resonance spectroscopy by measuring changes in phosphocreatine (PCr), inorganic phosphate (Pi), and pH during plantar flexion exercise and recovery. All groups had similar Pi/PCr ratios and pH… CONTINUE READING
