Title : Overtraining syndrom in horse: What would be the interest of following the leptin concentration?
Authors : S. LE GAL, N. PRIYMENKO
Summary : Overtraining syndrome is known in horse and human athlete: it consists in tiredness and decreasing of performance, coupled with physical and psychological changes. It is the result of a negative balance between tiredness caused by overtraining and recovery capabilities of the organism. Leptin is a polypeptide hormone secreted by stomach following food intake. It amplifies energy metabolism and contributes to lipolysis. Leptin concentration reflects the fat level of an organism, increasing at high energy intake and decreasing with negative energy balance (fasting, significant energy consumption?). Amended by intensive training in human and horse, leptin level could represent a useful biomarker of overtraining syndrome.
