Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It seems likely to consider that the bone density (BD) of athletes is higher than that of control subjects. But recently, many authors reported lower BD of amenorrheic female athletes, and suggested that strenuous exercise could decrease BD through, probably, endocrinological disorder.
