  • The number of determinations of the mean fasting glucose levels in the RE group and the AE group before intervention was 43 and 49, respectively. The number of determinations of 2-hour postprandial blood glucose level in the RE group and the AE group was 128 and 135, respectively. The number of determinations of the mean fasting glucose levels in the RE group and the AE group after intervention was 301 and 295, respectively. The number of determinations of 2-hour postprandial blood glucose level in the RE group and the AE group was 900 and 888, respectively.

  • AE, aerobic exercise; RE, resistance exercise.
