Abstract The prevalence of type 2 diabetes has been increasing in Singapore and is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Exercise training is an important therapeutic modality for managing glycaemic control and improving cardiovascular health among persons with type 2 diabetes. It may also help to prevent or delay the onset of this harmful condition. This review examines the evidence and possible mechanisms by which exercise training produces these benefits, and gives a brief review of appropriate exercise activities.
