Changes in energy balance result in weight gain or loss and changes in body composition. Disturbances in energy metabolism like mitochondrial dysfunction and metabolic inflexibility are linked to metabolic health and chronic diseases. Both diet and physical activity, but also ageing and chronic diseases like cancer, can affect energy metabolism, energy balance and body composition.
This course will give an overview of state-of-the-art methods to measure body composition and energy metabolism and its application, and will touch upon some major (patho)physiological aspects of energy metabolism and health.
