in growing tissues) for adolescent populations with different levels of physical activity and/or training have been published ( Torun, 2005 ). It appears that low energy availability (EA) in adolescent athletes undertaking heavy training is common ( Muia et al., 2016 ). This may lead to a number of

endocrine profiles involved in growth and repair ( Dolan et al., 2012b ). Key hormones related to bone metabolism, such as testosterone, cortisol, and vitamin D, may be downregulated at times of low energy availability to allow the body to conserve energy for essential processes ( Dolan et al., 2011 ). Yet

bike-pack trip through South America. Conclusions.— Unexpected fractures in endurance athletes should prompt evaluation for underlying medical conditions. While low energy availability, secondary amenorrhea, and low bone density are common in endurance athletes, rare medical conditions should also be

Energy It is difficult to give general recommendations for the EI in athletes due to individual variability and the differential nature of the sport. In addition, a minimum energy availability (EA) is

requirement and supply found in many of these studies can lead to low energy availability with consequences to athletes’ performance and health ( da Silva Gomes et al., 2005 , 2006 ; Eskici & Ersoy, 2016 ; Goosey-Tolfrey & Crosland, 2010 ; Mountjoy et al., 2014 ).

Collectively, these results suggest that the average 24.5 MJ daily energy intake of the athlete, although 0.6 MJ less than targeted, was sufficient to meet energy availability
