    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Anna-Karin Albin; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; testosterone; estrogen; pubertal growth; growth hormone treatment;

    Sammanfattning : Background and aims: It is well established that the interaction of sex steroids with the growth hormone (GH)/ insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) axis is of major importance in children for normal pubertal growth. However, detailed understanding is still lacking. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Bone density, bone geometry and bone development in young men - the importance of pubertal timing and fracture history

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Anna Darelid; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; peak bone mass; bone mineral density; bone development; fracture; young adulthood; men;

    Sammanfattning : Background and objective: Peak bone mass, the maximal bone mass attained in young adulthood, is an important factor of the lifetime risk of developing osteoporosis. The aim of this thesis was to study the development of bone mineral density (BMD) and bone geometry around the time of peak bone mass in men, and also to investigate the association between pubertal timing, fracture history, bone turnover markers and BMD and bone geometry in young men.

  4. 4. Muscle function and physical activity in pre-pubertal school children

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University

    Författare :Susanna Stenevi Lundgren; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; children; physical activity; exercise; isokinetic muscle strength; vertical jump height; normative; intervention; school transport; DXA; anthropometry; fat mass; lean mass; weight; height; body mass index; girls; boys; pre-pubertal;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Regular participation in physical activity or organized exercise is regarded as one important lifestyle factor that could improve musculoskeletal health, fitness and body composition. For children and adolescents physical activity is important not only in training of the neuromuscular system, coordination and balance, but in a wider perspective, for adopting a lifestyle that possibly reduces the risk of coronary artery disease, obesity, osteoporosis and other contributors to morbidity and mortality in the population.
