A quasi-experimental research aimed at examining effects of ModifiedArm Swing Exercise (MASE) Program on capillary plasma glucose (CPG) and bodycomposition in people with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes (T2DM).
Twenty-four people with uncontrolled T2DM froma Ban Phai Rong Wua Sub-district Health Promoting Hospital, Suphanburi province,Thailand who met the inclusion criteria were selected into the study and received theMASE Program for 12-week. Data were collected using a demographic questionnaireand measurements of CPG, body mass index (BMI), visceral fat and skeletal muscle atbaseline, 8th, and 12th week after MASE program, analyzed by descriptive statistics andrepeated measure ANOVA.
After the MASE Program, mean CPG, BMI and visceral fat tended to bedecrease, and skeletal muscle was likely to have increased; however, all variables werenot statistically significant different at the least interval (F (2, 46) = 1.80, p > 0.05; F (2,46) = 0.31, p > 0.05; F (2, 46) = 0.32, p > 0.05; F (2, 46) = 3.12, p > 0.05, respectively).
The MASE Program should be recommended to people withuncontrolled T2DM for more than12 weeks for better outcomes.
