  Background & Aims : Effect of aquatic training on improving and monitoring of diabetes have been less studied. Aquatic training due to inducing zero gravity and motion resistance is one of the efficient methods for diabetes subjects especially menopausal women which suffer osteoporosis damage, So the purpose of this study was the evaluation of effect of 12 weeks aerobic aquatic training on hormonal and metabolic indices in women with type II diabetes mellitus.

  Materials & Methods: 40 postmenopausal diabetes women aged with 50-60 years selected and randomly divided into experimental (n=20) and control groups (n=20). The experimental group performed water training program for 12 week (3 sessions per week, 60 min per session) at 60-75% of MHR. Control group did not participate in any exercise program during study period. In this study HbA1C(Glycosylated Hemoglobin), RBP4( Retinol-binding protein-4), insulin, FBS and lipids profile were measured before and after the exercise intervention in both groups. For calculation of Insulin resistance index HOMA-IR method was used. Data analysis was conducted by SPSS software version 18.

  Results : The results of this study showed that after 12 weeks of aquatic training blood sugar, lipids profile, RBP4 and HbA1C levels was decreased significantly in training group. Insulin resistance index changes was also significant (P<0.05). Serum insulin levels also increased however this increase was not statistically significant (P<0.5).

  Conclusion : based on study results water training program due to involvement in hormonal and metabolic indices changes has insulin-like affects in postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
