Background and purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of 8 weeks of cardio kickboxing training on some metabolic and inflammatory indicators in adults with type 2 diabetes.
Materials and methods: In this semi-experimental study, 22 men with T2DM were purposefully selected. Eligible volunteers to participate in the research with the age range of 35 to 55 years (exercise group 49.54±0.59, control group 49.9±0.75) were selected and randomly divided into two groups: exercise group (n=11) and control group (n=11). BMI, fasting blood glucose, HbA1c, lipid profile, HOMA-IR and CRP were measured 48 hours before and after the experimental period.
Results: In the intervention group, compared to the control group, after 8 weeks of cardio kickboxing a significant decrease in body weight and in the levels of HbA1c, HOMA-IR, FBS, BMI, TG and CRP was observed after completing the training program (P<0.05). Moreover, the results of Pearson's correlation test showed that there was a significant relationship between the reduction of CRP levels, HbA1c (R=0.596, P<0.01) and blood glucose (R=0.386, P<0.05). Furthermore, cardio kickboxing training had no significant effect on LDL, HDL, TC and plasma insulin (P>0.05).
Conclusion: These results revealed that cardio kickboxing exercises had a significant effect on TG, which was a lipid parameter, as well as CRP, which was an inflammatory marker, and contribute to the development of diabetes.
