Obese Women With Diabetes May Need Different Workouts Than Men
Date:1/28/2013

MONDAY, Jan. 28 (HealthDay News) -- Certain exercises that benefit the hearts of obese men with type 2 diabetes may not help women with the same health issues, according to a small new study.

The findings could help researchers and health care professionals develop targeted exercise routines for these women, the study authors said.

The investigators examined the cardiovascular responses -- such as heart rate and blood pressure -- of about 75 obese men and women with diabetes. These responses were measured using an isometric handgrip test, which involves continually squeezing an object for a few minutes.
