Comparative pilot study.
Objective: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus is a very common disease affecting Indian population and exercise is an effective method to control blood sugar levels. The aim of this study is to demonstrate the positive effect of exercise in the management of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
Materials and Methods: The present study was carried out in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation department of Patna Medical College and Hospital on the role of exercise in patients of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. A total of 40 patients were recruited for the study and divided into two groups- study and control group; 20 patients in each group.
Result: The study shows that exercising in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus according to the designed protocol is safe, tolerable and effective, leading to decrease in blood glucose level. It was not surprising that reduction in blood glucose level was associated with a functional improvement and has been documented with the statistically significant differences blood glucose level on most of the scales.
Conclusion: We can say that supervised exercising in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus under the condition described in this study seems to be a safe and effective treatment, with no associated systemic repercussions or complications. Nonetheless, further study and clinical trials are needed to confirm the results observed. It may be an error to limit to exercising as a single treatment. It can be applicable as a carrier or a co- adjuvant of other established therapeutic methods and diet modifications.
