Physical training improves muscle mass and different metabolic activities. Metabolic need is dependent on one’s body type and dimension even in resting condition. The normal values of different metabolic markers might not match with that of trained athletes as they were not estimated according to body type. So, the purpose behind this study was to focus on the relationship between somatotypes and two important metabolic markers which represent the renal and cardiac functions of trained athletes. This cross-sectional study was carried out in total 34 trained male athletes (mean age 12.7 years). They were kinantropometrically categorized into three groups-dominant endomorph, mesomorph and ectomorph. In resting condition, blood samples were withdrawn for the analysis of creatinine and creatine kinase-MB. One-way ANOVA was performed (p<0.05) to analyze the results. Significant difference in Serum Creatinine (F=4.14) among the three groups had been found. There was insignificant difference in Creatine Kinase-MB among the dominant endomorph, mesomorph and ectomorph. It can be concluded that the reference values for normal individual were not alike in trained athletes and it will be more accurate if we consider these important metabolic biomarkers according to their body constituent. This may help to prevent sports injury and help in proper quantification of training programme by reflecting more accurate internal metabolic status of the trained athletes.
