Recognizing the positive sides of exercising on a
regular basis, the American College of Sports Medicine
(ACSM) encourages girls and women to engage in
various sport activities to preserve and improve their
health. However, in 1992 in sports that emphasize a slim
body figure, an association of symptoms including
amenorrhea, eating disorders and osteoporosis was
recognized. Later it was defined as the Female athlete
triad. Although there is a large amount of articles on this
subject, a relatively small number of articles bring results
on the new points of view of certain parts of the Female
athlete triad. That is why the goal of this article is to
introduce new guidelines from the American College of
Sports and the International Society for Clinical
Densitometry (ISCD) which changed the concept of the
Female athlete triad. The current comprehension of the
Female athlete triad is presented as related notions of
available energy, menstrual cycle and bone mineral
density which clinically manifest from mild disorders to
severe conditions such as eating disorder, amenorrhea and
osteoporosis. The main trigger of the Triad is considered
to be irregular adjustment of eating habits due to the length
and intensity of the physical activity, not only in
professional athletes but also in amateurs. In this article
we also discuss the epidemiology, clinical picture,
diagnostic methods and therapy options of the Female
athlete triad and all of its components. Finally, the
possibility that a similar association of disorders exists in
male athletes will also be discussed.
