[Sports therapy in obesity and lipid metabolism disorders].

[Article in German]


Lack of movement is an essential cause for the development of obesity and dys- and hyperlipoproteinaemias. These disturbances of metabolism are risk factors for the development of the early coronary heart disease. The medicamentous treatment of these diseases can be decisively supported by dosed application of athletic exercises (sports therapy). Persevering athletic exercises of at least 30 min duration increase the activity of lipocatabolic enzymes (lipoprotein lipase, serum-lecithin-cholesterol-acyl transferase). As measure of exercise in sports therapy perseverance-orientated kinds of sport of altogether 2 hours a week are recommended.
