Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Exercise Management Therapy: Superior Monitor Efficacy over Polymeters | Original Article
In comparison with the podemeter in the practise treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes, we compared the effectiveness of an activity monitor (that shows the strength and amount of steps of exercise). The topics were split into the community () and group of podometers of activity monitoring (). Improving haemoglobin A1c was the first objective (HbA1c). The goal was set at 8,000 stepsday and a mild intensity workout (altogether 3.5 caloric equivalents) for 20 minutes. The fitness monitor is designed to measure the time and length of the exercise, amount of steps, walking distance, calorie intake and overall calorie consumption with a three-axis accelerometer sensor. The podium metre measures the number of moves. During the visits, blood samples were taken for laboratory purposes. The thesis was started and repeated at 2 and 6 months. The first test took place. At 2 months, a major difference was found in both groups in the decrease in the amount of HbA1c. In addition to the amount of measures, the usage of activity level monitors that show details on exercise strength are helpful in exercise therapy so the exercise therapy principle is enhanced and the decrease in HbA1c in patients with diabetes is supported.
