Diabetes

  • Both progressive resistive training and aerobic exercise were effective in improving metabolic profiles of adults with type 2 diabetes but the percentage improvement in triglycerides, total cholesterol levels and general well-being with progressive resistance training was more compared to aerobic activity. (Indian J Med Res., 2009)
  • Physical exercise in type 2 diabetic patients with the metabolic syndrome is associated with a significant reduction of C reactive protein and other inflammatory and insulin resistance biomarkers independent of weight loss. (Nutr Metab Cardiovascular Dis., 2009)
  • Overweight patients with abnormal glucose metabolism who attend a program featuring diabetes prevention advice such as the importance of diet and physical exercise may be at reduced risk of coronary heart disease and diabetes. (Diabetes Care, 2009)
