Effects of combined exercise on blood lipids, estradiol, and cognitive function in the elderly women with mild cognitive loss


Author(s): Nan Hee Lee, Chung Moo Lee and Sukho Lee

Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to determine the changes of blood lipids, estradiol, and cognitive function by combined exercise (CEx) in elderly women with mild cognitive loss. Sixteen elderly women with mild cognitive loss (71.9 ± 4.6 years) were randomly divided into two groups: exercise (EG) (n=9) and control groups (CG) (n=7). The CEx was composed of aerobic and resistance exercises (50-60 min, 3 times/week, 12 weeks). The data were analyzed using 2ⅹ2 repeated measures ANOVA with the SPSS package. Total cholesterol and triglyceride were significantly decreased, while high-density lipoprotein cholesterol was significantly increased in the EG (p<0.05). Estradiol concentration and cognitive function test score were not significantly changed. These findings suggest that CEx may be able to regulate blood lipids. However, the CEx program in this study was insufficient to improve cognitive function in the elderly women with mild cognitive loss.
