“…However, the authors did not mention the history of lipid disease, and the study population comprised only males, whereas the present study was conducted only in females as mentioned earlier. In a pilot study conducted by (Jokic et al 2018) to evaluate the effect of balneotherapy on lipid status, the researchers showed that blood glucose, triglyceride, total cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol levels decreased, but HDL cholesterol levels did not change. However, the number of patients included in that study was very small.…”

In some other studies, the positive effects of balneotherapy on biochemical parameters and adipokines were shown in patients with obesity (Fioravanti et al 2015a;Jokic et al 2018;Olah et al 2010;Olah et al 2011;Rosc et al 2015). However, there are some differences in the results of the studies.…”
