Abstract We investigated the effect of exercise training on blood pressure, heart rate, and arterial baro- and chemoreflex sensitivity in diabetic rats (streptozotocin, 50 mg/kg iv). Male Wistar rats (251+/-10 g) were divided into 4 groups (n=8, each group): sedentary normotensive (SC), sedentary diabetic (SD), trained normotensive (TC), and trained diabetic (TD). Trained groups underwent exercise training on a treadmill (10 weeks). Exercise training induced resting bradycardia (340+/-5 vs. 316+/-8 bpm) and improvement in baroreflex tachycardic response (3.4+/-0.31 vs. 2.7+/-0.06 bpm/mmHg in SC) and chemoreflex bradycardic (145+/-12 vs. 78+/-7 bpm in SC) and pressor (49+/-5 vs. 22+/-3 mmHg in SC) responses in control rats. Diabetic-induced hypotension (SC: 107+/-2 vs. SD: 93+/-2 mmHg) and bradycardia (SC: 340+/-5 vs. SD: 276+/-7 bpm) were reversed by exercise training. Baroreflex tachycardic and bradycardic responses impaired in SD rats (SD: 2.1+/-0.18 and 1.3+/-0.08 vs. SC: 2.7+/-0.06 and 1.3+/-0.08 bpm/mmHg) were enhanced in TD rats (2.5+/-0.1 and 1.7+/-0.06 bpm/mmHg). Chemoreflex bradycardic and pressor responses, attenuated in SD rats (23+/-9 bpm and 7+/-1 mmHg) in relation to SC rats, were improved by exercise (TD: 84+/-15 bpm and 32+/-5 mmHg). The improvement in arterial baro- and chemoreflex-mediated control of circulation in trained control and diabetic rats reinforces the role of exercise in the management of cardiovascular risk in healthy and diabetic individuals.
