Background and Objectives: Physical activity is one of the ways to prevent and control metabolic diseases, such as diabetes. In the present research, the effect investigate the effect of 8 weeks of circulatory resistance exercise, was investigated on the indices of type 2 diabetes in the middle-aged women.
Methods: In this semi experimental study, 16 women (mean age, 44/9±2/35 years), were voluntarily selected and randomly assigned to two groups of control and experimental. A pre-test was taken from the both in terms of indicators of interest (weight, height, waist circumference, hip circumference, body fat percentage, fasting blood sugar, and glycosylated hemoglobin). The experimental group performed a period of circulatory resistance exercise (8 stations, 4 rounds, 3 days per week for 8 weeks). At the end of this period, the mentioned indicators, were again assessed as the posttest. Data were analyzed using independent t-test at the significant level of p<0.05.
Results: In this study, the mean body weight, body fat percentage, waist circumference, fasting blood glucose level, and the mean of glycosylated hemoglobin in the experimental group were significantly higher compared to the control group (p=0.001), whereas a significant difference (p=0.63), was observed in the mean body mass index between experimental and control groups.
Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, resistance exercise, such as endurance exercise leads to optimal control and improvement of diabetes-related indicators in the middle aged women.
