Objective This study aimed to assess whether changes in leisure-time physical activity over 3 years are associated with changes in health-related quality of life. Method Among the adults enrolled in the Supplementation en VItamines et Minéraux Antioxidants study in France, 3891 completed the Modifiable Activity Questionnaire to assess leisure-time physical activity and the Medical Outcomes Study 36-item Short-Form to assess health-related quality of life in 1998 and 2001. Multivariate analyses involving logistic and linear regressions determined the association between changes in leisure-time physical activity and changes in health-related quality of life. Results Over 3 years, increased leisure-time physical activity was associated with high scores in health-related quality of life dimensions: physical functioning, mental health, vitality for both sexes as well as social functioning for women only. An increase of 1 h per week of leisure-time physical activity was associated with a 0.17- and 0.39-point increase in the vitality dimension in men and women, respectively. The mental component score was also increased in women increasing their leisure-time physical activity. Conclusion The long-term association between leisure-time physical activity and health-related quality of life changes is limited and has little clinical significance, especially for men and for the physical health-related quality of life dimensions. The long-term association needs to be further explored before formulating public health recommendations. [less ▲]

Introduction Whether the femoral neck bone mineral density (FN BMD) of children may be better predicted from that of their parents when taking into account the anthropometry of the children was assessed in a healthy adult sample consisting of 86 mother-daughter, 32 mother-son, 32 father-daughter, and 23 father-son pairs from 128 families. Heritability for FN BMD, which is considered to be a measurement of general resemblance, was defined as the regression coefficient of the mean of the parents’ BMD. Among the anthropometric factors, lean mass was the most strongly associated with FN BMD following the adjustment for age in women (r=0.52, p<0.0001) and men (r=0.25, p=0.02). After adjustment for age, calcium intake, physical activity, and menopause and hormonal replacement therapy if relevant, heritability estimates (h2) for FN BMD were 0.68±0.23 [95% credible interval (CI): 0.15–0.99] in father-daughter pairs, 0.40±0.17 (95% CI: 0.08–0.74) in mother-daughter pairs, and 0.19±0.15 (95% CI: 0.01–0.57) in father-son pairs. Adjustment for lean mass of children increased the h2 for FN BMD in mother-son pairs [from 0.24±0.17 (95% CI: 0.01–0.57) to 0.66±0.18 (95% CI: 0.26–0.95)]. The present results show that FN BMD is heritable in adult father-daughter pairs (7.2% of a daughter’s FN BMD variance was explained by the father’s FN BMD) and that taking into account the lean mass of sons might improve the prediction of their FN BMD based on that of their mother’s (reduction of sons’ FN BMD residual variance by 5.1%). Taking the lean mass of children into account might improve the prediction of their FN BMD by 9.1% in daughters and by 18.1% in sons, irrespective of their parent’s FN BMD. These results, obtained using a Bayesian regression model, have to be confirmed in further studies involving a greater number of adult parent-offspring pairs of both genders before extrapolation to clinical practice.
