Abstract

Background: Heart rate variability (HRV) reflects autonomic nervous system modulation of cardiac activity. There is a relationship between degrees of physical activity, HRV changes and the risk of cardiovascular disease. Aim: To study the effect of a supervised integrated exercise programme on HRV in type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Methods: The study group consisted of 48 patients (27 males, mean age 62±7 years) with type 2 diabetes, of whom 28 underwent a special exercise programme whereas the remaining 20 did not and served as the control group. The supervised integrated exercise programme was applied for a period of 9 months. Deep breathing time domain HRV (difference between the shortest and the longest R-R interval over one minute) was measured at baseline and after 3, 6 and 9 months. Results: A significant improvement in the HRV values was observed with increasing duration of exercise (13.03±1.08 beats/min at baseline versus 16.5±1.11 beats/min at 9 months, p
