A Comparative Study to Analyze the Effect of Aerobic Exercise Training and Resistance Training Versus Aerobic Exercise alone in Patients with Type II Diabetes Mellitus

Vijay Pandita [2] | Mitesh Patel [3]


Abstract: Background and purpose The WHO estimated that there were 135 million diabetics in 1995 and this number would increase to 300 million by the year 2025. Physical activity is one of the principal therapies which lowers the blood glucose in type 2 diabetes due to its synergistic action with insulin in insulin-sensitive tissues. Exercise helps to increase glucose uptake by skeletal muscle that is retained for up to 48 hr during the recovery from a single bout of exercise in non-diabetics and type II diabetics. Objectives To find out the effectiveness of aerobic exercise combined with resistance training and aerobic exercise alone. Methods Total samples consist of 40 subjects with type II diabetes and from the age group of 40-55 years. Twenty (n=20) subjects were allocated in one group in which they received aerobic training with Progressive resistance training. Twenty (n=20) subjects were allocated in other group in which they received aerobic training alone. Outcome measures The subjects were randomly assigned in experimental and control group respectively. The blood glucose level of the 40 subjects was assessed before and after 12 weeks of treatment by automated analyzer. The obtained data was analyzed & compared with pretest posttest volume of the same group by using paired-t test for both experimental & control group. Unpaired t test was used to analyze the data between the groups. Results Inter group comparison of both experimental and control group shows that there is a highly significant difference in the post test volumes of blood glucose level. (p<0.0001). Conclusion Aerobic exercises combined with resistance training are having an anti diabetic effect in type2 diabetes.
