Physical activity improves insulin sensitivity and metabolic control in patients with type 2 diabetes. Moreover, regular exercise can reduce systemic levels of immune markers associated with diabetes development. As patients with physical impairments are not able to exercise sufficiently, the aim of this study was to investigate whether high-frequency external muscle stimulation (hfEMS) improves metabolic and immunologic parameters in patients with type 2 diabetes and might therefore serve as… CONTINUE READING
