 Higher levels of fetuin-A and hypoadiponectinemia are associated with impaired glucose regulation and pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes. The aim of this study was to the survey of   effectiveness of Regular Exercise training on Fetuin-A and Adiponectin levels in overweight postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes mellitus(T2DM).
Materials & Methods:
  This semi experimental research, twenty sedentary overweight postmenopausal women with T2DM were selected through convenience sampling and then randomly divided into control and exercise groups (n=10). Training program consisted of 25-40 minutes of aerobic exercise at 50-70 percent of maximal heart rate, 3 sessions per week for 8 weeks. The plasma levels of Fetuin-A and Adiponectin using ELISA method and glucose levels via enzymatic colorimetric method were measured. Data were analyzed by paired and independent t tests. The level of statistical significance was set at P< 0.05.
Based on the results, 8 weeks of aerobic exercise were associated with decreased glucose levels (P = 0.002), Fetuin-A (P = 0.001) and body weight (P = 0.001), and also increased adiponectin (P <0.001) in the trained group compared to the control group.
It seems that regular aerobic exercise can mediate some of its beneficial effects in the pathological conditions of type 2 diabetes by lowering plasma levels of Fetuin-A and up-regulating adiponectin.
