Abstract

Background & objectives: Diabetes is a strong risk factor for premature coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease mortality. Potential maintenance strategy could be homebased resistance training, which may foster long-term adherence through greater convenience and flexibility. Methods: A total of 37 subjects with type 2 diabetes were recruited, 19 in experimental group (Home-based combined aerobic-resisted exercise) and 18 in control group (aerobic exercise) by block randomization. The experimental group subjects were given brisk walking gradually progressed to 150min/week at a moderate RPE of 12–14 for three months where as in control group, 3 days/week brisk walking (for 30 minutes/day) and resisted exercise with elastic bands (30min/day) for 2 days/week for 3 months. Glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) and Diabetes Quality of Life Brief Clinical Inventory questionnaire was assessed before training (i.e. 0 wk) and after 3months of training. Results: Glycosylated haemoglobin levels decreased significantly (P<0.05) both in experimental group and control group. There was also an improvement in quality of life on the 15-item DQOL Brief Clinical Inventory. Conclusions: Home-based combined aerobic-resisted exercise program leads to significant improvement in values of HbA1C and had effects that were greater than aerobic alone. There was also an improvement in quality of life in combined group compared to aerobic training group alone.
