OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of a 4-month strength training (ST) versus aerobic endurance training (ET) program on metabolic control, muscle strength, and cardiovascular endurance in subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D). DESIGN Randomized controlled trial. SETTING Large public tertiary hospital. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-two T2D participants (11(More)
BACKGROUND Although both strength training (ST) and endurance training (ET) seem to be beneficial in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D), little is known about post-exercise glucose profiles. The objective of the study was to report changes in blood glucose (BG) values after a 4-month ET and ST programme now that a device for continuous glucose monitoring has(More)
Marathon running is growing in popularity, and many diabetic patients are participating in various marathon races all over the world each year. This study aimed to investigate the prevalence and extent of glycemic excursions (hypo- and hyperglycemic) during a marathon run in patients with well-controlled diabetes mellitus using a continuous glucose(More)
Orthostatic intolerance is a syndrome characterized by chronic orthostatic symptoms of light-headedness, fatigue, nausea, orthostatic tachycardia, and aggravated norepinephrine levels while standing. The aim of this study was to assess the protective effect of exercise endurance training on orthostatic symptoms and to examine its usefulness in the treatment(More)
Physical exercise is often recommended as a therapeutic tool to combat pre- and postmenopausal loss of bone density. However, the relationship between training dosage (intensity, duration, frequency) and the effect on bone density still is undergoing discussion. Furthermore, the exercise quantification programs are often described so inadequately that they(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine hepatitis C (HCV) treatment effectiveness and predictors of response in the "real-world" Australian clinic setting. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS Patients with chronic HCV, who were HCV-treatment-naive at enrolment, and were then treated with standard therapy (pegylated interferon-α plus ribavirin), were recruited prospectively(More)
UNLABELLED The available data on pulmonary function in type 1 diabetes are still conflicting. Recently, restrictive alterations of pulmonary function were demonstrated in type 1 diabetic patients with end-stage renal failure (diabetic nephropathy), whereas patients with kidney failure from other causes had normal pulmonary function test results. In this(More)
Eight women and 4 men, mean age 71.1 years, examined by a clinical check-up participated in a bicycle ergometer training program (12 weeks with 3 training sessions per week). Symptom limited ergometric bicycle tests were performed before and after the training period. The training work load was continuously controlled by maintaining the training heart rate(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of regularly performed endurance training on heart rate variability in diabetic patients with different degrees of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN). METHODS Bicycle ergometer training (12 weeks, 2 x 30 min/week, with 65% of maximal performance) was performed by 22 insulin-requiring diabetic patients (age 49.5(More)
Moderate persistent elevation of the γ-glutamyltransferase (γGT) level is a frequent finding during long-term follow-up of patients with total cavopulmonary connection (TCPC) for palliation of functionally univentricular hearts. Serial intraindividual data revealed a significant increase in the γGT level within a minimum 4-year interval in more than 80 % of(More)
