Over the past two decades, the global prevalence of diabetes has substantially increased. Aerobic exercise has identified as a specific treatment and major strategy for treatment of patients suffering type-2 diabetes. So this study aims to explore the effect of aerobic exercise on concentration of plasma adiponectin and insulin resistance in women with type-2 diabetes. 20 diabetic women were placed as subjects into aerobic exercise and control groups. The aerobic exercise program included three weekly walking sessions for 30 to 60 minutes with the intensity of 60 to 70 HRR. Plasma adiponectin concentration, fasting glucose, insulin, blood lipids and body measurements were measured at the beginning of the program (pre- test), fourth week (during the test) and at end of the sixth week (post-test). Independent t test was used to analyze the data and the two-way analysis of variance was made using repeated measurements. After 8 weeks of exercise, plasma adiponectin concentration and insulin resistance did not represent any significant change (P>0.05), but fasting glucose represented a significant decrease (P<0.05). The findings of this study showed that 8 weeks of aerobic exercise would not have a significant influence on plasma adiponectin and insulin resistance in type 2 diabetic women; however, it had a significant effect on weight, BMI and fasting glucose level of this group of diabetic women. In addition, 8 weeks of aerobic exercise brought about a significant impact on VO2max. Therefore on the basis results from this study it is recommended that type-2 diabetes able to perform aerobic exercises should benefits from the useful effects of this type of exercise.
