The purpose of the study is to evaluate the impact of an exercise programme organized into supervised walking groups on metabolic control, functional capacity and overall quantity of physical activity in subjects with type 2 diabetes.
Regular, moderate-intensity physical activity can attenuate hyperglycemia in subjects with type 2 diabetes. In addition, these programmes may favourably affect several other cardiovascular risk factors in these subjects. However, it still remains unclear how this evidence can be transferred into clinical practice, considering the very large number of diabetic patients and the characteristics of this population, made up predominantly of elderly, sedentary and overweight patients. In this regard, a realistic approach to this issue requires simple and easily available intervention models.
Walking is a typical mild-moderate aerobic physical activity which is easy to organize and does not require specific skills or preliminary sophisticated medical evaluations. This activity could therefore fit well with the need of involvement of large numbers of patients in different logistic situations. However, it has been reported that, due to the low walking speed typical of type 2 diabetic subjects, self-paced walking is inadequate to obtain a significant metabolic improvement in these subjects.

Type 2 diabetes, which accounts for ~90% of all diabetes, is a heterogeneous and progressive disease with a variety of causative and potentiating factors. The hyperglycaemia of type 2 diabetes is ofte...
An activity in which the body advances at a slow to moderate pace by moving the feet in a coordinated fashion. This includes recreational walking, walking for fitness, and competitive race-walking.
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).
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.
The rate at which steps are made while walking.
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 .
