ABSTRACT
The objective of this study is to analyze the effects of acute exercises the sedentary individuals do on thyroid hormonal metabolism. The research was carried out on 14 sedentary males between the ages of 18 and 24. The study was approved by the local committee for ethics. The average age of the subjects was: 20,4 ± 0,65 years, their average body weights: 76,86 ± 2,08 kg and their average height was: 175,07 ± 1,26 cm. As for the exercise application, the subjects were made tired through Bruce protocol.10 cc of blood samples were taken from the subjects each time before the exercise, after the exercise, 24 hours after the exercise and 48 hours after the exercise. In the obtained blood samples, the parameters of serum TSH, T3, T4, were analyzed in Backman LX-20 auto analyzer through Lot No:T1142, Mg Lot No:907035, P Lot No:903417 Backman Coulter test kits. The arithmetic averages, and standard deviations of all the parameters were determined. The repeating ANOVA test was used for the determination of the difference between the parameters. Confidence interval was chosen as 95% and the values of p≤0.05 and below was accepted as statistically significant. According to the measurements before and after the exercises, significant differences were found between the parameters of TSH, T3, and T4 (p≤0.05).In conclusion, it can be said that the protocol of these acute submaximal exercises done by sedentary individuals decreased serum TSH, T3, and T4 levels and it approached to normal levels 48 hours after the exercises.
