Abstract

Physical activity is an established intervention strategy in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. However, patient compliance is relatively low, partly due to unstructured training advice by the diabetologist or general practitioner. Therefore, ergometry should be performed before starting any exercise program to exclude coronary heart disease and exercise hypertension. In addition, lactate analysis or spirometry may differentiate between aerobic and anaerobic exercise. This information should be included in the training"prescription", giving training intensity and volume of exercise.
