Physical activity and diabetes have been linked, as it plays an important role in preventing the progression of peripheral neuropathy, and their impact is primarily on the development of muscle strength and the ability to replace the function of nerve fibers with impaired disabilities. It seems that any form of exercise added to a balanced lifestyle significantly improves the quality of the subject with diabetes (type 2 diabetes). The small differences between aerobic and endurance training as a benefit for type 2 diabetes do not promote a certain form of exercise. In conclusion, the effects of regular exercise are recognized as an effective way to improve the condition of the disease. The basis of exercise therapy is simply the ability of skeletal muscle contractile activity to increase insulin sensitivity and promote blood glucose absorption and stabilization. Thus, regular participation in aerobic structure, endurance, or competing exercise had generally favorable effects on glycemic control, body composition, endothelial function, physical work capacity, and self-reported well-being.
