EMS Training, Muscle Damage, and Creatine Kinase Elevations:

EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) is a new trend in fitness and sports, eliciting EMS 1 Canadian Academy of Sports Nutrition caasnmuscle contractions using electrical impulses. Also known as electromyostimulation, EMS is a high-intensity whole body workout in which low frequency electrical impulses are used to stimulate the muscle fibers not engaged in conventional training.

The concern with many EMS trainees regarding an elevation in blood levels of creatine kinase prompted us to write this article.

EMS training induces microscopic tears and damage to the skeletal muscle fibers and connective tissues, leading to an increase in creatine kinase (CK) activity and its leakage into the outside of the cells. In fact, any prolonged, heavy, or repetitive exercise can elevate the circulating CK.

Creatine kinase (CK) is an enzyme that catalyzes the reversible transfer of phosphate from phosphocreatine (PCr) to ADP to form creatine and ATP. An increase in plasma CK is usually associated with DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). The severe and rapid breakdown of muscle fibers leading to the release of myoglobin, a muscle protein, into the bloodstream is called "rhabdomyolysis".

Can Anti-Diabetic Medication Beat Cancer?!

The discovery of aspirin in 1897 and penicillin in 1928 has had a tremendous impact on Metformin 3 Canadian Academy of Sports Nutrition caasnmedicine. Aspirin and penicillin were and still are the "miracle makers" in medicine. Would metformin, the famous anti-diabetic medication, be the next miracle maker and join the aspirin-penicillin club to save millions of lives by acting as an anti-cancer?

Lurking everywhere, cancer continues exponentially to expand and so does the medical research to tame it! Clinicians and research scientists are working around the clock to find a way to gain control of bizarre proliferation of cancer cells. Recent researches have centered on metabolism of cancer cells, and modulators of metabolism are being tested clinically.

Interfering with metabolism of cancer cells causes "turmoil in tumors", succumbing them to death. One of the metabolism modulators that is under a heavy research is the famous anti-diabetic medication metformin. It is being evaluated alone and in combination with other anti-cancer drugs. So far, the results are promising!
