Abstract: Materials and Methodology: Obese with type 2 diabetes mellitus patients (n=24)both the male and female, age group 39-55yrs were included in this study and patient with current insulin therapy, any exercise therapy from previous 6 months, blood pressure >160/95mmHg and any musculoskeletal, cardiovascular or neurological condition were excluded from the study. A comparative study was done where two groups were made, Group A (n=12) received Aerobic exercise and Group B (n=12) received Resistance exercise. Exercise was given for 3 times a week for 16 weeks. Outcome measures were Body Mass Index and Skinfold Caliper.
Aerobic exercise and Resistance exercise both were effective for reducing Body Mass Index in obese with type 2 Diabetes mellitus. But There were significant changes on BMI (p<0.001) in the Aerobic exercise group as compare to Resistance exercise group, But there were no significant changes seen in the skinfold thickness on both the groups.
