Physical activity, cardio-respiratory fitness, and metabolic traits in rural Mexican Tarahumara.

Christensen DL, Alcalá-Sánchez I, Leal-Berumen I, Conchas-Ramirez M, Brage S - Am. J. Hum. Biol. (2012)

Bottom Line: Mean (SD) systolic and diastolic BP was 122 (20.8) and 82 (14.8) mm Hg, respectively, with 28.1% having hypertension.Mean body mass index was 27.5 (4.2) kg m(-2) , with 71.9% being overweight.Following adjustment for age and sex, weak inverse associations were observed between PAEE and systolic BP (β = -0.20, P = 0.27) and diastolic BP (β = -0.16, P = 0.23); and between CRF and systolic BP (β = -0.51, P = 0.14) and diastolic BP (β = -0.53, P = 0.06).

fig01: Associations between physical activity (n = 15), fitness (n = 48), and metabolic traits in adult Tarahumara. [Color figure can be viewed in the online issue, which is available at wileyonlinelibrary.com.]

Mentions: For men and women combined, mean (SD) PAEE was 71.2 (30.3) kJ day−1 kg−1 and CRF was 36.6 (6.5) mlO2 min−1 kg−1. Mean (SD) glucose was 127.9 (32.4) mg dl−1, with 3.3% being above the threshold for diabetes. Mean (SD) systolic and diastolic BP was 122 (20.8) and 82 (14.8) mm Hg, respectively, with 28.1% having hypertension. Mean BMI was 27.5 (4.2) kg m−2, with 71.9% being overweight. Mean WC was 89.5 (11.2) cm and abdominal obesity was found in 68.8% of the participants. Mean (SD) body fat percentage was 30.7 (7.8) (Table 1). Following adjustment for age and sex, inverse associations between PAEE and systolic BP (β = −0.20, P = 0.27) and diastolic BP (β = −0.16, P = 0.23) as well as between CRF and systolic BP (β = −0.51, P = 0.14) and diastolic BP (β = −0.53, P = 0.06) were observed. Inverse associations with blood glucose for PAEE (β = −0.01, P = 0.63) and CRF (β = −0.05, P = 0.27) were found as well (Fig. 1).
