Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of six weeks moderate-intensity aerobic exercise on plasma glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase levels in adult women with type-2 diabetes. Methodology: The research population included postmenopausal diabetic women aged from 45 to 60. These women were from the county of Babol and were introduced by the Diabetes Association of this county. From this population, 17 women were selected as subjects and randomly divided into two groups: experimental and control. Experimental group’s program consisted of 6 weeks of aerobic exercise training program three sessions a week for at least 45 minutes per session. Two days before and after the training period, blood samples were taken from their brachial veins in a fasting state (12 hours prior to the test) in a sitting position. Results: The results indicated that aerobic exercise significantly increases the levels of glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase in adult women diagnosed with type-2 diabetes compared with the control group. Conclusion: According to the research findings, it can be stated that this aerobic exercise program can have beneficial effects on the antioxidant defense system of the body and reduce oxidative stress in adult women with type-2 diabetes, because it improves the antioxidant defense of the body by increasing the levels of certain plasma antioxidant enzymes.
