Session Type: ACR Poster Session C
Session Time: 9:00AM-11:00AM
Background/Purpose: Physical inactivity is prevalent in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). Assessment of physical activity (PA) is vital to manage cardiovascular risk factors in SLE. The aim of this cross-sectional correlational design was to explore the relationship between assessments of PA patterns in individuals with SLE using questionnaires covering short- and long-term periods of PA.
Methods: Individuals with SLE (n=148) according to ACR criteria (52±16 years old; BMI: 24.4±4.3 kg/m2 ; disease duration 22±15 years) were enrolled. The International Physical Activity Questionnaire Short-Form (IPAQ-SF) covering short-term period (last week) and questions from Physical Activity Questionnaire covering long-term period (last 6-12 months) were used. SLAM-R was used to assess disease activity and SLICC-DI to assess organ damage. Spearman rho analysis and p<0.05 was used.
Results: Median SLAM-R was 5 (IQR 6), SLICC was 1 (IQR 3) and IPAQ-SF PA category was moderate. PA on high exertion (days/week) the last 6-month was moderately correlated with IPAQ-SF vigorous activity days/week (r=0.43) and minutes/day (r=0.47) respectively as well as to IPAQ-SF moderate activity days/week (r=0.44). PA (hours/day) the last year was moderately (r=0.47) correlated with IPAQ-SF walking hours/day. Exercise last year was moderately correlated with IPAQ-SF vigorous activity days/week (r=0.46) and minutes/day (r=0.51) respectively as well as to IPAQ-SF vigorous category (r=0.51) and IPAQ-SF total score (r=0.45). Sitting hours/day last 6-month were strongly (r=-0.63) correlated with IPAQ-SF sitting hours/day.
Conclusion: The results indicate that there are moderate-to-strong relationships between short- and long-term period of PA, exercise and sitting behaviours in SLE with mild disease activity and organ damage. Health professionals in clinical practice, therefore, need different questionnaires to capture different time periods of PA patterns.
