Overview

More and more, researchers are finding that exercise is an important component in the long-term management of diabetes. This book provides physicians, exercise physiologists, epidemiologists, and health care providers an extensive review of the literature that reveals the positive effects of exercise on people with Type I and Type II diabetes mellitus. The book also examines the role of exercise prescription in diabetes management. Authors Barbara N. Campaigne and Richard M. Lampman help you determine when exercise is appropriate and beneficial and present guidelines for using exercise to potentially prevent or delay the onset of the metabolic abnormalities of diabetes. In this one concise reference, you'll find complete information on metabolic, hormonal, and cardiovascular responses to exercise; optimizing exercise therapy; and risks and benefits associated with exercise as a clinical management technique. Because Type I and Type II diabetes have such different characteristics, Exercise in the Clinical Management of Diabetes considers each separately. In addition to a complete review of the etiology and pathology of both types, you'll find in-depth information about how acute exercise and physical training affect each type. Two final chapters discuss the clinical uses of exercise prescription and include case studies to help you apply the information to your situation. For anyone involved in diabetes treatment or research—physicians, exercise physiologists, epidemiologists, health care providers, biochemists, and physiologists—this is an indispensable resource. It's also an excellent graduate text for seminars in exercise physiology.
