Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med den här studien var att undersöka om styrketräning påverkar konjunktival rodnad i ögat samt om kosttillskott som är vanliga vid styrketräning påverkar ögontorrhet.

Metod: Deltagarnas konjunktivala rodnad undersöktes med biomikroskop och graderades med Efron Grading Scale. 19 patienter undersöktes efter träning och 21 patienter undersöktes utan att ha tränat den dagen. Deltagarna fick svara på ett frågeformulär om vilka kosttillskott de använde och OSDI-enkäten.

Resultat: Ingen statistisk signifikant skillnad i konjunktival rodnad mellan gruppen med styrketränande personer och kontrollgruppen upptäcktes. I gruppen för träning blev medelvärdet på konjunktival rodnad 0,72 ± 0,42 och i kontrollgruppen 0,55 ± 0,28. Ingen statistisk signifikant skillnad i OSDI-poäng mellan gruppen som använde kosttillskott och gruppen som inte använde kosttillskott upptäcktes. I gruppen med kosttillskott blev medelvärdet på OSDI-poäng 11,31 ± 11,72 och för ej kosttillskott 16,52 ± 10,70.

Slutsats: Studien visar på att styrketräning ej påverkar den konjunktivala rodnaden och att kosttillskott inte påverkar ögontorrhet i den här studien.

Abstract [en]

This study has two aims. The first aim is to investigate if strength training has any association with conjunctival redness. The second aim is to investigate if dietry supplements have any association with dry eye.

40 participants were included in this study and were divided into two groups. One group that was examined directly after a strength training workout and one control group that did not work out that day was examined. The avarage age of the workout group was 25.9 ± 5.5 and in the control group was 24.3 ± 4.9. The participants were examined with the slit lamp and the conjunctival redness was graded according to Efron Grading Scale.

The same subjects participated in the investigation of supplements afftecting dry eye. They answered a questionnaire to see what supplements they were using and then divided into two groups. One group that were using supplements and one that did not. The avarage age in the supplement group was 25.9 ± 5.5 and in the no-supplement group 24.2 ± 5.0. To examine their eye dryness they answered an Ocular Surface Disease Index survey.

There was no statistical significant difference in conjunctival redness between the workout group and the control group (p>0.05). And there was no statistical significant difference in OSDI score between the supplement group and the no-supplement group (p>0.05).

Weight training does not affect conjunctival redness in this sample. Supplements do not affect dry eye symptoms in this sample.
