'Dose-Response' Between Exercise and Improvement in Diabetes
The more patients with type 2 diabetes exercise, the greater their drop in A1c, according to a new post-hoc analysis of data collected during 6 months of supervised exercise. This dose–response relationship between exercise and reductions in A1c held firm for those who did aerobic training or a mixture of aerobic and resistance exercises (combined), but not for those who only did resistance exercises.
