The purpose of this study was to study the content of free and bound carnitine in
the blood of young athletes involved in various sports. 101 young athletes of
various sports qualifications at the age from 15 to 17 years old were examined.
For the research, young men were divided into two groups: I - types of sports of
complex impact (football) - 38 people, II - cyclic type (rowing) - 31 people.
Girls (32) are divided into three groups: I - types of sports of complex impact
(football) - 14 people, II - a cyclical sport that predominantly develops
endurance (rowing) - 6 people, and III - a complex coordination sport (rhythmic
gymnastics) - 12 person. It was revealed that the assessment of carnitine
metabolism indices allows predicting the degree of physical working capacity of
athletes involved in various sports. At the same time, it was found that indicators
of carnitine metabolism, body composition, have prognostic value in assessing
the physical performance of young athletes.

The problem of adolescents should get serious attention and focus on directing adolescents to a more positive direction, which focuses on creating a system to deal with delinquency among adolescents. The type of research used in this research is the evaluation research (evaluation study). The adolescent reproductive health counseling program carried out is one of a series of Field Learning Practice Programs (PBL) conducted by the Department of Public Health, Universitas Negeri Malang. To evaluate the success of this activity, an evaluation was carried out containing the pretest,posttest, and rating questionnaire. The resultsof the evaluation showed that students who studiedhealth increased from an average value of 41.47 to 90 after counseling. Based on the evaluation of the Adolescent Reproductive Health or called ”Kesehatan Reproduksi Remaja“(KRR) counseling program through a questionnaire, an average score of 86.79 was obtained, which indicated that the Adolescent Reproductive Health Renewal Programwas given according to a top category. Thus, it can be concluded that supporting good health will increase knowledge about adolescent health.

Introduction:
Disabilities are nuanced and multifaceted; 15% of the world's population is disabled and has trouble working. Deaf and dumb cause major lifestyle changes and habits among adolescent girls that lead to physical, psychological, and social adjustment issues. Menstruation is a normal physiological process every teenage girl experiences every month. The ability to manage menstruation hygienically is essential to the dignity and wellbeing of women, which is an integral part of basic hygiene, sanitation and reproductive health services. Objective: To determine the existing knowledge and practice of menstrual hygiene among specially abled adolescent girls at selected centres in Bhubaneswar(BBSR). Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted between September 2020 and November 2020 in Bhubaneswar town of Odisha. Total census sample of 22 deaf and mute adolescent girls from B.B.C Govt High School for the Deaf (Unit III), Bhubaneswar. A questionnaire consisting of three parts namely Part A: Sociodemographic and obstetrical and gynaecological information; Part B: Menstrual hygiene knowledge questionnaire; and Part C: Menstrual hygiene practice checklist. Results:The finding of the study reported that 45.46 per cent had moderately adequate knowledge on menstrual hygiene; 27 per cent of study participants had proportionately inadequate and adequate knowledge of menstrual hygiene, and 86.37 per cent had reported good practice in menstrual hygiene.The Mean and SD of Knowledge score was 37.958 ,Practice was 8.50 and Karl Pearson Correlation (r =0.26, p=0.23) estimated that there was no significant positive fair correlation between knowledge score and practice score. Conclusion: Good menstrual hygiene triggers women's health, trust and self-esteem and is linked to gender equality and fundamental human rights. Setting realistic time-limited targets, including education (Videos and Information Booklets) on hygienic practices followed during menstruation using sign language for deaf and mute adolescent girls, would be a welcome effort to provide basic hygiene and reproductive services to specially-enabled girls and women.

Depression In adolescence is linked with a range of adverse outcomes and substantial risk for morbidity
and mortality across the life span. Fast food is a common element of many adolescent’s diets. This leads to
pediatric obesity and the consequence could be increased risk of depression. A diet high in sodium could
develop symptoms of depression in early adolescence and that diet could be a modifiable risk factor for
depression in adolescent patients.The aim of the study is to evaluate the association between fast food
intake and mental health in the adolescent population.An online questionnaire was prepared and circulated
among the adolescent population.The sample size is 100. The data was tabulated and then imported to
SPSS software by IBM and the statistical Chi square test was done.Out of 100 adolescents, 71% were
females and 29% of them were males. 81% of them follow a mixed diet. 90% of the adolescents consume
fast food.The prevalence of consumption of fast food is much higher in the adolescent population. Out of
various types of fast foods, the prevalence of consumption of sweets is much higher in the adolescent
population. And most

Dental caries(DC) is one of the most prevalent oral diseases of health concern often affecting adolescents.Dental caries is a biofilm mediated,diet modulated, multifactorial, non communicable,dynamic disease resulting in net mineral loss of hard fissure of the oral cavity. It is determined by biological, physiological, behavioural and environmental factors of an individual. As a consequence a carious lesion is produced. People of all ages are affected by dental caries.Adolescents are individuals between 10-19 years old and proven to have a high caries experience. The aim of this study is to evaluate the incidence of Dental caries among 10-19 years old patients visiting Saveetha Dental college between june 2019-april 2020. A total of 5445 patients data was analysed from their case records and analysed for incidence among gender,correlation with age.It was found that out of 5445 patients,3021 patients(73%) were male and 2412 patients(25%) were female and 2 patients(2%) were transgenders.Patients of the age group of 13-19 years had more incidence and the age group of 14-15 year old had least incidence. Within the limitations of this study it can be concluded that male patients have more DC than female patients among the 10-19 years age group in an outpatient population of a Dental College.
