Sammanfattning : Subjects with the Metabolic Syndrome with or without type 2 diabetes are at excess risk for developing cardiovascular disease. The mechanisms are still not completely understood. Resistance to insulin-stimulated glucose uptake is associated with several metabolic and hemostatic risk factors for cardiovascular disease. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Objectives To assess physical fitness in pregnancy and to evaluate its effect on perceived health, back pain, blood pressure and duration of gestation. Also, to evaluate the effect of serum relaxin levels on blood pressure and duration of gestation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The overall aims of the studies were to investigate the effects of different training modalities on exercise capacity and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with moderate or severe COPD and, further, to explore two of the physical tests used in pulmonary rehabilitation.In study I, the 12-minute walking distance (12MWD) did not increase on retesting in patients with exercise-induced hypoxemia (EIH) whereas 12MWD increased significantly on retesting in the non-EIH patients.

4. Physical activity, body composition, inflammation and effects on antioxidative capacity in sedentary adults
Sammanfattning : Background: For the past fifty years part the population has slowly become sedentary to an extent that it is nowadays considered normal behavior. Parallel with sedentary behavior there is an increase in obesity now reaching epidemic level. LÄS MER
5. Physical exercise and electrical stimulation in the management of metabolic, cardiovascular and skeletal-muscle alterations in people with tetraplegia
Sammanfattning : Interruption of the spinal cord at the cervical level leads to permanent extensive motor paralysis, serious autonomic regulation deficits and profound short term and long term metabolic disorders The defects play a decisive role for the tetraplegic individuals future function and health. The aims of the present thesis were ( I ) to assess the physical endurance capacity and the trainability of recently spinal cord injured patients, with a special emphasis on tetraplegic persons, (2) to investigate the autonomic regulatory defects during arm ergometry in chronic tetraplegic individuals, (3) to study skeletal muscle metabolic and morphologic consequences of long standing tetraplegia, and (4) to investigate the effects of electrically stimulated leg cycle training (ESLC training) on oxygen uptake, body composition, skeletal muscle glucose metabolism, and skeletal muscle morphology.
