Measurement Requirements

This trial is evaluating whether Cardiovascular exercise training will improve 3 primary outcomes in patients with Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2. Measurement will happen over the course of Through study completion, approximately 4 months.

Change in muscular mitochondrial function
The investigators will examine mitochondrial function using magnetic resistance (MR) spectroscopy during single leg calf exercise
Change in peak oxygen consumption (VO2peak)
Subjects' peak oxygen consumption will be tested on a stationary bike before and after 3 months of exercise
Change in insulin sensitivity
The investigators will evaluate the changes in insulin sensitivity utilizing a euglycemic insulin clamp

Patient Q & A Section

Please Note: These questions and answers are submitted by anonymous patients, and have not been verified by our internal team.

Is cardiovascular exercise training typically used in combination with any other treatments?

Cardiovascular exercise training is used as a component of multidisciplinary rehabilitation in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2. Findings from a recent study should be considered in future studies of cardiovascular rehabilitation, particularly in older populations.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Is cardiovascular exercise training safe for people?

Results from a recent clinical trial of this study support the evidence that aerobic exercise is safe and effective for type 2 diabetic patients with cardiovascular disease. In addition, our data are in agreement with previously published data for a healthy older cohort (mean age of 76.3). Results from a recent clinical trial suggest that exercise should be considered for all patients with coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Who should consider clinical trials for diabetes mellitus, type 2?

Diabetes mellitus, type 2 and its associated complications can result in many comorbidities and other complications resulting in more urgent care visits and more urgent treatments. Patients with diabetes mellitus, type 2 should not necessarily be seen as a high-risk patient, especially when it comes to clinical trials. Diabetes mellitus, type 2 could affect patients participating in clinical trials in different ways. More research is needed to compare clinical trial data and a patient's baseline medical condition during the clinical trial.
