abstract

  • We examined the effect of brief intermittent stair climbing exercise on glycemic control using continuous glucose monitoring in people with type 2 diabetes (n = 7, 5 men; 2 women; age, 21-70 years). The protocol involved three 60-s bouts of vigorously ascending and slowly descending a flight of stairs. Mean 24-h blood glucose was unchanged after an acute session (p = 0.43) and following 18 sessions over 6 weeks (p = 0.13). The protocol was well tolerated by participants but seemingly insufficient to alter glycemic control.
