Abstract

This paper explores multiple published articles that will consider the effects of aerobic and anaerobic exercise performed by adult individuals diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus. It will also explore the benefits of combining both forms of exercise and how each compare in terms of glycemic control. This paper will specifically be looking at the benefits of exercise on type 2 diabetes mellitus. I acknowledge that a combination of both exercise and nutrition is optimal for individuals with type 2 diabetes, but this paper is solely looking at the effects of exercise. I will be analyzing the methods used in each study and examine the benefits researchers provide from their results.
