    Kathryn E Ackerman
    Neuroendocrine Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02114, USA
    Clin Endocrinol (Oxf) 78:114-9. 2013
    ..We hypothesized that higher cortisol secretion in young endurance weight-bearing AE compared with EE and nonexercisers predicts lower LH secretion, lower levels of a bone formation marker and higher levels of a bone resorption marker...
