Sažetak
Numerous studies show that many chronic diseases are more common in inactive individuals as compared with persons engaged in regular physical activity. The aim of this study was to determine if there was a statistically significant difference in prevalence of several kinesiologically sensitive diseases between regularly physically active and inactive women aged 50 to 65. A total of 214 urban women responded to questionnaire on health and physical activity. 111 women participated in aerobic classes 2-4 times a week for at least 5 years, while 103 women were never engaged in regular physical activity. Women were asked if they were diagnosed any of the following diseases / conditions: bone loss, coronary heart disease, heart arrhythmia, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, chronic low back pain, functional limitations of joints, anxiety, and depression. Statistically significant difference in prevalence of only two diseases was found. Significantly lower number of active women stated symptoms of heart arrhythmia (x2= 4.36, p < 0.05) and anxiety (x2 = 6.77, p < 0.01). Observed results are not completely congruent with scientific findings of numerous previous investigations. This fact can be attributed to the limitations of the study.
