Participants sought: Do you have Type 2 diabetes and sit for large portions of the day?

Scientists at the Physical Activity and Behavioural Epidemiology Laboratory, Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute recently discovered that breaking up prolonged sitting has important beneficial effects on glycaemic control in older adults. We now aim to further investigate this phenomenon in those with type 2 diabetes, who are likely to derive the greatest benefits. This research may ultimately lead to practical and feasible treatment and management strategies in those with type 2 diabetes.
