Recent studies have shown that type II diabetic is associated with systemic inflammation. This study was aimed to determine the effect of a single stepwise cycling on serum C-reactive protein and insulin resistance in type II diabetic patients. For this purpose, seventeen adult males with type II diabetic were selected to participation in this study by accessible sampling. Blood samples were collected before and immediately after a stepwise cycling test in order to measuring serum CRP, glucose concentration and insulin resistance. Student’s t-tests for paired samples were performed to determine significance of changes in variables by exercise test. No significant change was found in serum CRP by cycling test in subjects (1161 ± 214 vs 1184 ± 287 ng/ml, p=0.234). Cycling test resulted in significant decrease in glucose concentration (234±34 vs 212 ± 33 mg/dl, p=0.039), but insulin resistance was not changed (4.67 ± 1.23 vs 4.65 ± 1.12, p=0.148). Based on these data, we conclude that single cycling test for short-time can not improve serum CRP and insulin resistance while is associated with glucose reduction.
