The aim: Of this study was to describe longitudinal changes in body composition and serum leptin, ghrelin and adiponectin levels over 36-month period in prepubertal rhythmic gymnasts (RG) and their age-matched untrained controls (UC) entering into puberty.Methods: 35 RG (mean age 8.0±0.6 years) and 33 UC (8.2±0.6 years) were followed at 12-month intervals for the next 3 years. Height, weight, pubertal stage, body composition by DXA and serum le...
