Cardiorespiratory Fitness Correlates with Glycemic Control

High HbA1c, high-fasting glucose and impaired oral glucose tolerance are related to lower cardiorespiratory fitness levels, according to recent findings. Cardiorespiratory fitness also appears to be associated with pancreatic beta-cell insulin secretory compensation for changing insulin sensitivity. “The association provides additional evidence highlighting the importance of fitness in protection against the onset of a fundamental pathophysiological event that leads to type 2 diabetes,” the researchers concluded. — Diabetes Care, March 17, 2015, doi:10.2337/dc14-2813
