Objective: To evaluate the effect of combined exercise training on metabolic control, physical fitness and quality of life in adolescents with type 1 diabetes. Design: A double-blind randomized controlled trial with patients receiving combined aerobic and strength or no training. Setting: University Hospital Ghent (Belgium). Subjects: Sixteen children with type 1 diabetes were randomized into a control group (n = 8) and an intervention group (n = 8). Interventions: Patients participated twice a… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

The effects of personalized sprint interval training and combined aerobic endurance and resistance training on insulin resistance and glycated hemoglobin in women with type 2 diabetes

Results highlight that individualized exercise training, independent of the mode of training, is effective in improving glycemic control in overweight patients with type 2 diabetes.

Effects of 12 Weeks Aerobic Exercise with a Diet Regimen on the Glycemic Control and Cardiovascular Health of Boys with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

There is evidence that aerobic training with a diet regimen improves the glycemic control and cardiovascular health of boys with T1DM in 12 weeks.

Effect of Strength Training on Glycemic Control and Adiponectin in Diabetic Children

An isolated supervised progressive resistance training two times a week in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus must last at least 32 wk to get a significant decrease in blood glucose level HbA1C and exercise-induced increase in adiponectin improves insulin sensitivity.

Effect of High-Intensity Interval Training on Quality of Life, Sleep Quality, Exercise Motivation and Enjoyment in Sedentary People with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

It is suggested that the 6-week HIIT program used in the present study is safe, and an effective strategy in improving HRQoL, sleep quality, exercise motivation and enjoyment which are important psychological well-being factors in T1DM people.

Effect of aerobic and anaerobic exercises on glycemic control in type 1 diabetic youths.

The regular physical exercise has several other valuable physiological and health benefits that justify the inclusion of exercise in pediatric diabetes treatment and care.

Effects of exercise training on glycaemic control in youths with type 1 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials.

It is suggested that programs longer than 24 weeks with at least 60 min/session of high-intensity concurrent exercise may serve as a supportive therapy to metabolic control in youth with T1DM.

Effects of high-intensity circuit training, low-intensity circuit training and endurance training on blood pressure and lipoproteins in middle-aged overweight men

It is indicated that high-intensity circuit training is more effective in improving blood pressure, lipoproteins and triglycerides than endurance training alone or lower intensity circuit training.

The effects of physical activity on glycaemic control in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus participating in diabetes camps

Physical activity of children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes is lower compared to reference ranges for healthy population, but diabetic camps-based physical activity, in addition to regular physical education classes, could be of heath benefit in children.

Cardiovascular Health Benefits of Exercise Training in Persons Living with Type 1 Diabetes: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

In persons living with T1D, exercise training is associated with a beneficial cardiovascular profile, including improvements in lipid profile, glycemic control (decreased daily insulin dosage and HbA1c), and aerobic fitness.



Effects of a Physical Activity Program on Metabolic Control and Cardiovascular Fitness in Children with Insulin-dependent Diabetes Mellitus

It was concluded that a carefully applied program of regular vigorous physical activity can beneficially influence metabolic control and cardiovascular fitness in young children with IDDM.

Health related quality of life in patients with long-standing insulin dependent (type 1) diabetes mellitus: benefits of regular physical training.

The data indicate that physical exercise training in patients with type I diabetes mellitus improves metabolic control and various aspects of health related quality of life (HRQOL).

Aerobic exercise and the lipid profile in type 1 diabetic men: a randomized controlled trial.

Endurance training improved the lipid profile in already physically active type 1 diabetic men, independently of effects on body composition or glycemic control.

Effects of Exercise Training on Insulin Sensitivity in Adolescents with Type I Diabetes

It is concluded that exercise training may be a valuable adjunct in managing type I diabetes providing there is concomitant attention to diet and insulin, although it improves physical fitness and insulin sensitivity.

Comparison of the Acute and Long-Term Effects of Exercise on Glucose Control in Type I Diabetes

Although plasma glucose decreases acutely with exercise, increased caloric intake on exercising days obviates a long-term effect of training on glucose control and more precise guidelines and recommendations as to exercise timing and nutrient intake are required.

Assessment of exercise capacity in women with type 2 diabetes

The main finding of this study was that EVO2peak assessed using a submaximal exercise test, systematically overestimated VO2peak and the combined group training increased maximal work rate but not VO2 peak.

Adherence to physical activity in young people with type 1 diabetes.

The results must encourage health care professionals to review regularly the ability of their patients in managing physical activity and to check their adherence to the programme for a safe exercise.


14 children with juvenile diabetes mellitus were enrolled in a one‐hour twice weekly supervised exercise program for 5 months and the effect of freezing and storage of hemolysates, resulting in increased levels of HbA1, was demonstrated.
