Exercising enough can prevent weight gain. Researchers have found a simple measurement method that helps to maintain or reduce weight– and it’s free.
New findings show that cholesterol crystals in the uterine wall are the villain that researchers have been looking for. These crystals cause intensified inflammation in people who become ill.
High-intensity interval training strengthens the heart even more than moderate exercise does. Now researchers have found several answers to what makes hard workouts so effective.
Gene therapy is the most effective method to be able to provide health benefits you normally gain through physical exercise. This means of “training” could be helpful for folks who can’t exercise in the usual ways.
Five years of high-intensity interval training increased quality of life, improved fitness and might very well have extended the lives of participants in the Generation 100 study.
Between 250 and 270 people die each year from heroin or opioid overdoses in Norway. In the EU, thousands die. European users now have a better option available for helping each other.
More than 100 000 Norwegians have atrial fibrillation. They should be actively exercising for their health.
Two weeks ago, doctors at St. Olavs Hospital in Trondheim were running out of reagents needed to do COVID-19 tests. They asked colleagues at NTNU to develop a backup solution. Now, Norway is gearing up to use the new approach to test 150,000 people a week after Easter.
NTNU’s Fitness Calculator was developed in 2013. It was able to reveal your body’s real age and how long you could expect to live. Now it turns out that it can tell you much more about your health.
Ulrik Wisløff has been selected for the Heart Research Award for his studies on training as cardiac medicine. The prize is presented by King Harald.
Nearly 40 million people were living with HIV in 2017, the UN says, with just over half taking antiretroviral therapy. These drugs have cut AIDS-related deaths by more than half since the 2004 peak, but the disease cannot be cured. A new mechanism uncovered by a Norwegian research group could improve the chances of developing one.
Staying fit or improving fitness over time should be a goal for anyone who wants to reduce the likelihood of getting dementia.
You may not be able to hear them, but they help to diagnose and treat patients every day. In the past 40 years, ultrasound imaging has gone from blurry black-and-white images, to sharp 3D images in real time. And the technology is still developing. Now, artificial intelligence is being tested for aid in interpreting ultrasound images.
The dreaded condition known as rhabdomyolysis may be much more common after a particularly intense training session than you’d think. But for most people, the only symptom is being slightly more sore than usual.
