- body mass [ Time Frame: eight weeks ]Measured always at the same time of the day on a calibrated weight scale
- Muscle strength [ Time Frame: eight weeks ]Measured using resistance exercise machines (isotonic) in four exercise movements
- Endothelial function [ Time Frame: eight weeks ]Measured using a two dimensional color spectral Doppler ultrasound equipped with a 14MHz linear transducer. Subject laid down comfortably in the supine position with the right arm slightly abduced. After locating the brachial artery, the transducer was placed on the anteromedial face of the right arm, perpendicular to the centerline of the arm, 5-10 cm above the antecubital fossa, over the artery.
- muscle thicknesses [ Time Frame: eight weeks ]Measured with a ultrasoundo bidimensional in Mode B, with a 7,5MHz transducer on the anatomical sites knee extensor muscles and elbow flexors and extensors.
- markers of renal function [ Time Frame: eight weeks ]Measured using conventional and satandardized laboratory methods with subjects fasting for 12 hours
- body composition [ Time Frame: eight weeks ]Measured with skinfold calipers and using prediction equations to determine body fat and lean body mass.
