Résumé
Objective: To examine the association between miles run per week and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels in healthy middle-aged men. Background: Regular exercise increases levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. However, the exercise requirements for such increases are not well defined. Methods: Healthy, nonsmoking men (n=2906; age, 43±4 years) completed a questionnaire on health habits and physical activities and a symptom-limited exercise test. They were then stratified on the basis of the number of miles run per week. Six groups, with mileages of 0, 5, 9, 12, 17, and 31 per week, were established. Results: A gradual increase in high-densitylipoprotein cholesterol level was observed with increased miles (0.008-mmol/L [0.308-mg/dL] increase in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level per mile). Most of the changes were associated with distances of 7 to 14 miles per week. Levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, and the ratio of total cholesterol to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol also improved with weekly mileage. The high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level correlated significantly with all exercise components, anthropometric measures, and alcohol consumption. Group comparisons disclosed significant differences (P<.05) in exercise time to exhaustion, miles run per week, body fat, body weight, and body mass index. Age and alcohol consumption were similar across groups. Conclusions: These results indicate a dose-response relation
