Effect of low-intensity combined training and glycemic control in elderly diabetic type 2
Keywords:Diabetes mellitus; Blood glucose management; Physical exercise.
The objective was to investigate the effect of combined low-intensity training twice a week on the glycemia of elderly type 2 diabetics. This is a semi-experimental, longitudinal, quantitative study of primary data that made a comparison between moments pre-intervention with post-intervention moments. A voluntary group of 26 elderly people, of both genders, type 2 diabetics, monitored at a basic health unit was conveniently selected. Quantitative and qualitative analyzes of postprandial capillary blood glucose collections were carried out for a period of 30 days and exercise sessions were carried out twice a week, of approximately 50 minutes, of low intensity, estimated by the Borg scale. To compare the results within the group and between female and male subjects, the Shapiro-Wilks tests were used to determine the normality of the data, followed by Anova Ane Way with Tukey's Post Hoc all with 5% significance through the PrismStat 5.0 program. After the comparisons of the total group from the pre-intervention moment with the moments after the beginning of the intervention, there was no statistical difference between them, a similar effect when compared by sex, where the results showed no differences (p>0.05). Thus, low-intensity exercise twice a week applied to the elderly diabetic was not able to cause additional effects on the glycemic levels of the participants.
