Background & Aims: Despite the development of new therapeutic and clinical mmethods, type 2 diabetes is widely increasing in the world. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of 12 weeks resistance training on neural conduction in men with type 2 diabetes with peripheral neuropathy.
Materials & Methods: This study was conducted on twenty­-two male with type 2 diabetes who were randomly divided into two groups of resistance (age 58.4±6.0 years, weight 84.7±8.0 kg and diabetes history 13.7±7.2 years) and control (age 56.2±8.1 years, weight 87.5±15.0 kg and diabetes history 14.5±5.7 years) group. Resistance training consisted of two sets of main muscles in the upper body and trunk and three sets of main muscles in the lower body with 8 to 12 repetitions, three times a week for 12 weeks. Before and after intervention nerve conduction measurements and blood samples were done. The data were analyzed using Shapiro-Wilk test for normality data, and dependent and independent T test to evaluate within and between group changes.
Results: The mean peroneal and tibial nerve conduction velocity (NCV) and sural and tibial action potential amplitude in the resistance training group significantly increased (P<0.05), and sural NCV in the control group significantly decreased (P<0.05). In addition, there were significantly differences between two groups in variation range of sural and tibial NCV and sural and tibial nerve action potential amplitude (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Resistance training not only improves nerve action potential amplitude, but also improves NCV which ultimately reflects the effectiveness of resistance training on lower limbs Electroneurographic parameters in short term.
