The effect of a multi-modal exeRcise intErvention on patientS with typE 2 diabeTes mellitus and impaired physical functioning (RESET) : a randomised controlled trial
Principle Investigator: Dr David Webb
In the UK the number of people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes is increasing. Type 2 diabetes is strongly linked to reduced physical function (difficulties in carrying out daily activities, muscle weakness, slow walking speed, etc.). This may contribute to additional complications, such as hospital admissions, falls and disability.
Exercising regularly has huge benefits for inactive people with type 2 diabetes. The RESET study is designed to examine the effectiveness of a specialised exercise programme on people with Type 2 diabetes and reduced fitness.
The study involves supervised exercise training for eight weeks at Leicester Diabetes Centre. We will measure a number of different outcomes before and after the intervention, including physical function, muscle strength, body composition, resting metabolic rate and quality of life.
We are recruiting inactive adults with type 2 diabetes (aged 40 to 70 years) and low fitness levels.
