Abstract:

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of a karate competition on the urinary excretion of proteins with high molecular weight and urinary creatinine to protein ratio in young male karate as. Ten young male karate as with the age range of 25±2.63 years, height of 175.7±5.15 cm and weight of 71.5±8.61 kg voluntarily took part in this study and participated in a karate competition. Before and 20 min after the competition, the urinary sample was collected and the levels of albumin, total protein, creatinine and urinary creatinine to protein ratio were measured and calculated. To investigate the changes of urinary proteins caused by competition, the student’s t-test for dependent groups was used. Glomerular proteinuria increased after the competition; however, it was only significant for albumin and creatinine (p = 0.009 and p = 0.018, respectively). Although total protein increased after the competition, it was not statistically significant (p = 0.184) and the creatinine to protein ratio did not make any significant changes (p = 0.532). Creatinine to protein ratio was less than 0.1 for the samples before and after the competition; therefore, proteinuria had a physiological range which was very far from nephritic and pathological proteinuria ranges; thus, it was not harmful.
