New study into type 2 diabetes and exercise


Researchers at the University of Colorado School of Medicine are investigating why exercise can feel more difficult for people with type 2 diabetes than it does for those without the disease.

The new study will examine 50 women aged between 50 and 75, with each being questioned about their level of comfort when exercising, and the findings for those with diabetes will then be compared to women without the disease of a similar age, weightand physical ability.

If this study is able to confirm findings from previous research that revealed that exercise felt harder for those people with diabetes, then it is hoped it will be possible to design specific exercise programmesfor people with type 2 diabetes.
