"I Could Move Mountains": Adults With or at Risk for Type 2 Diabetes Reflect on Their Experiences With Yoga Practice.
Summary of ""I Could Move Mountains": Adults With or at Risk for Type 2 Diabetes Reflect on Their Experiences With Yoga Practice."
The purpose of this study was to describe firsthand experiences with yoga as shared by adults with or at risk for type 2 diabetes and to examine their beliefs regarding maintenance of yoga practice over time.
In this qualitative study, 13 adults with or at risk for type 2 diabetes described their experiences with yoga and their beliefs regarding maintenance of yoga practice over time. Semistructured interviews occurred 16 to 20 months after completion of an 8-week yoga-based clinical trial.
Themes of readiness for continuing yoga, environmental support for yoga, and integrating yoga emerged through data analysis.
Findings indicate that yoga is appealing to some individuals with diabetes, but maintaining yoga practice over time is a challenge. Diabetes educators may be able to support maintenance by discussing specific strategies with individuals who express interest in yoga practice.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
Metabolic Syndrome X
A cluster of metabolic risk factors for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS. The major components of metabolic syndrome X include excess ABDOMINAL FAT; atherogenic DYSLIPIDEMIA; HYPERTENSION; HYPERGLYCEMIA; INSULIN RESISTANCE; a proinflammatory state; and a prothrombotic (THROMBOSIS) state. (from AHA/NHLBI/ADA Conference Proceedings, Circulation 2004; 109:551-556)
Hyperlipoproteinemia Type V
A severe type of hyperlipidemia, sometimes familial, that it is characterized by the elevation of both plasma CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES contained in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Type V hyperlipoproteinemia is often associated with DIABETES MELLITUS and is not caused by reduced LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE activity as in HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE I .
Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System
Telephone surveys are conducted to monitor prevalence of the major behavioral risks among adults associated with premature MORBIDITY and MORTALITY. The data collected is in regard to actual behaviors, rather than on attitudes or knowledge. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in 1984.
AIM: To describe the clinical characteristics and risk factors of adults 4mmol/l, 63% LDL >2mmol/l, 56% triglycerides >1.7mmol/l. From diagnosis only the cholesterol and LDL improved significantly, wi...
OBJECTIVE We studied differences between patients with latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA), type 2 diabetes, and classical type 1 diabetes diagnosed after age 35 years. RESEARCH DESIGN AND MET...
The risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus is heterogeneous among obese individuals. Factors that discriminate prediabetes or diabetes risk within this population have not been well characterized. A dysfunc...
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Systemic pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines are associated with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, while their role in latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) is unclear. Therefor...
The primary objective of the study is to assess the clinical utility of a genetic test for Type 2 diabetes risk in combination with standardized risk assessment compared with standardized...
The purpose of the project is to better understand how exercise and education will help mobility and health in older adults with diabetes. The investigators are trying to learn what type...
Autoimmunity is the main cause of diabetes type 1 and an important factor as cause of LADA. Recently, research have found that being deficient of T-reg cells is an important cause of autoi...
Objective: Recruit 3 cohorts with 1000-1200 subjects each: people with normal glucose metabolism, impaired glucose regulation (IGR), and with Type 2 diabetes. To study the risk factors in...
In this 6-month randomized, controlled trial, we will evaluate the impact of genetic testing for type 2 diabetes on psychological, health behavior, and clinical outcomes. Results from this...
