Moderate-intensity cycling vs running

Regular exercise is key in managing high blood glucose levels in type 2 diabetes.

Exercise causes your body to be more sensitive to insulin, becoming more efficient. During exercise, your active muscles use the sugar in your body for energy, lowering your blood sugar level.

run1Murdoch University is investigating the effectiveness of two modes of exercise on general health outcomes (fitness and body composition) and also those related to type 2 diabetes (glucose tolerance and immune function).

If you are between the age of 18-60 years old, have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of greater than 27 and not involved in regular exercise, you may be eligible to participate in this study (additional inclusion and exclusion criteria may apply).

What’s involved?

  • You will be offered 10 supervised exercise sessions at Murdoch University over two weeks.
  • Body composition analysis, fitness assessment and to provide blood samples on four occasions.
