PURPOSE Chronic heart failure (CHF) patients often present with (pre)diabetes, which negatively influences prognosis.

Therefore, this study aimed at investigating the effect of exercise training on glucose regulation in stable CHF patients. METHODS Twenty-two CHF patients were randomized into training (EX, n = 15) and control (CON, n = 7) groups. Before and after a 12-week… CONTINUE READING
