Introduction: In the recent studies, effects of the physical activity and regular exercise in preventing and postponing diabetes type 2,
increase in insulin sensitivity and improvement in glucose metabolism has been observed. Purpose of this study is to survey the effects
of aerobic training and resistance training on lipid profile in patients with diabetes type 2.
Methods: 45 patients with diabetes type 2 were selected by the targeted sampling method and divided into two aerobic training and
resistance experimental groups and one control group. Experimental groups exercised for 8 week, 3 sessions per week, each session 45
to 70 minutes. In this period the control group had no regular exercise. In this study, multiple variables like TG, TC, LDL and HDL
was measured before and after training course. Finally, the results were analyzed with repeated measure test in significance level of
Results: results of this study showed a significant improve in TG and HDL after aerobic training course and meaningful improve in
HDL after resistance training course.
Discussion: results of this study showed that aerobic training course had more effect on improvement of lipid profile rather than
resistance training course.
