BACKGROUND Physical activity is crucial for treatment of diabetes. However, intensive exercise brings the risk for metabolic decompensation; therefore, predicting its effect on glycemia is of great importance. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fourteen type 2 diabetic patients (47.9+/-1.6 years; mean+/-S.E.M.), treated with gliclazide, and 14 healthy controls (45.1+/-1.0 years) were subjected to standard graded submaximal (90% HR(max)) exercise treadmill testing for 2 h after standardized breakfast… CONTINUE READING
