Implications for an eating disorder on bone health in rhythmic gymnasts
Abstract
R
hythmic gymnastics (RG) is an aesthetic sport. An eating disorder in RG athletes can lead to a decline in sports performance and impair health. This review addresses the implications of an eating disorder on bone health in RG athletes. In general, RG athletes have poor energy intake compared to their energy expenditure, which can lead to Ca intake deficiency or low estradiol levels. Additionally, RG is a weight-dependent sport and requires a graceful physique such as for ballet. Therefore, eating disorders among RG athletes have become a concern. Nutritional information and knowledge are important for bone health and for preventing eating disorders in RG athletes.
Key Words: rhythmic gymnastics, bone mineral density, eating disorder
