Group A (n= 30) received external EMS plus aerobic exercises as home exercise program and followed a prescribed diabetic diet pattern, and Group B (n= 30) received aerobic exercises as home exercise program and followed a prescribed diabetic diet pattern. Participants in the both groups were engaged in the same 40-min aerobic exercises 5 days per week for 2 weeks and were following the same diabetic diet pattern for the period.
