Abstract Turner’s Syndrome (TS) is a genetic disorder associated with abnormalities of the X chromosome. TS, is usually related with reduced adult height, gonad dysgenesis and thus insufficient circulation levels of female sex steroids leading to premature ovarian failure and infertility. Often show high levels of cholesterol and increased triglycerides, determined by obesity and hyperinsulinemia. In the women with Turner’s Syndrome is impaired glucose tolerance (10- 34%). In addition, adult women tend to develop insulin resistance and propensity for type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Physical activity is important in the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus The aim of this study was to examine the effects of the physical activity and exercise in sedentary subject suffering from metabolic TS. The patient with TS, was recruited during the counseling for exercise in the diabetes clinic. For counseling has used the transtheoretical model in accordance with the guidelines of the American College of Sports Medicine. She was monitored for one year, and before and after the start of the educational exercise has undergone a series of tests: blood, and anthropometric. The level of physical activity was estimated by the 7 day physical activity recall (7-DR).. The exercise prescription is in accordance with the guidelines of the American Diabetes Association for the improvement of metabolic fitness. Results: From the literature, it is clear that young women with TS have a low level of physical activity. Our intervention allowed the patient to improve her level of physical activity going from low to a moderate level. Improvement of the level of physical activity was assessed by 7-DR, and through the armband. Therefore, analysis of the data, it appears a significant improvement in BMI, abdominal girth, blood pressure and blood glucose, compared to baseline. Conclusion: We believe that the results obtained after one year to serve as a stimulus not only to reduce morbidity and mortality, then, but also to improve the lifestyle.

Abstract

Abstract Turner’s Syndrome (TS) is a genetic disorder associated with abnormalities of the X chromosome. TS, is usually related with reduced adult height, gonad dysgenesis and thus insufficient circulation levels of female sex steroids leading to premature ovarian failure and infertility. Often show high levels of cholesterol and increased triglycerides, determined by obesity and hyperinsulinemia. In the women with Turner’s Syndrome is impaired glucose tolerance (10- 34%). In addition, adult women tend to develop insulin resistance and propensity for type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Physical activity is important in the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus The aim of this study was to examine the effects of the physical activity and exercise in sedentary subject suffering from metabolic TS. The patient with TS, was recruited during the counseling for exercise in the diabetes clinic. For counseling has used the transtheoretical model in accordance with the guidelines of the American College of Sports Medicine. She was monitored for one year, and before and after the start of the educational exercise has undergone a series of tests: blood, and anthropometric. The level of physical activity was estimated by the 7 day physical activity recall (7-DR).. The exercise prescription is in accordance with the guidelines of the American Diabetes Association for the improvement of metabolic fitness. Results: From the literature, it is clear that young women with TS have a low level of physical activity. Our intervention allowed the patient to improve her level of physical activity going from low to a moderate level. Improvement of the level of physical activity was assessed by 7-DR, and through the armband. Therefore, analysis of the data, it appears a significant improvement in BMI, abdominal girth, blood pressure and blood glucose, compared to baseline. Conclusion: We believe that the results obtained after one year to serve as a stimulus not only to reduce morbidity and mortality, then, but also to improve the lifestyle.
