FEMALE ATHLETE STUDY
Fat Mediated Modulation of Reproductive and Endocrine Function
in Young Athletes
 
 
A study for 14-25 year old female athletes with exercise induced amenorrhea
No Longer Accepting Volunteers
Study Aim
 

Our goal is to determine the impact of estrogen replacement in various forms on bone density. Additionally, it has been shown that estrogen is necessary to reap the mental health benefits from exercise. Thus, we are assessing depression and anxiety scores in athletes with and without menses to evaluate the impact of estrogen versus exercise on mood. We are also investigating changes in body composition and hormones in the same populations.

 

This is a 12-month treatment study.
