People with type 2 diabetes: eccentric exercise study
Researchers at Edith Cowan University are studying how “eccentric exercise” can help reduce glucose levels and improve insulin sensitivity in people with type 2 diabetes. Eccentric exercise includes walking downhill and lowering weights.
The researchers are looking for people aged 50-80 with type 2 diabetes who have not participated in strength training lately. Starting in February 2018, participants will receive 12 weeks’ resistance training, blood analysis, body composition scans and physical fitness assessments all free.
