Effect of physical therapy on blood glycemic parameters in women with Type 2 diabetes mellitus

Usha Rani Darimela, Anuradha Killi.

Abstract
Background: Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic complications designated by chronic hyperglycemia due to insulin resistance. Regular exercises are playing a major role in the prevention and therapeutic treatment of diabetes, its related health hazards and control of insulin resistance.

Aims and Objectives: To evaluate the effect of physical exercise on physiological, anthropological, and biochemical parameters in women with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Materials and Methods: A total of 160 women with type 2 diabetes were recruited from the Outpatient Department of Maheshwara Hospital. Based on age, weight, and body mass index (BMI), participants were divided into four groups with 40 participants in each such as Group 1 exposed to yoga, Group 2 undergone with physical exercises, Group 3 undergone with walking, and Group 4 considered as control group. All patients were trained by experts and subjected to regular practice for 6 months. Blood pressure, blood glucose, hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), BMI, and hip circumference were measured in all the patients.

Results: Yogic exercises have significant effect on hip circumference and HbA1c among the three groups. Physical exercises would be highly effective in controlling body weight, BMI, blood pressure, pulse rate, and blood sugar level. Walking group showed significant impact on variables such as weight, BMI, and blood sugar.

Conclusion: The walking and physical exercise groups are found to be better than yoga group in improving variables such as weight, BMI, and blood sugar. Yoga group has a good impact on HbA1c and hip circumference.

Key words: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus; Physical Exercise; Yoga; Walking; Blood Glucose
