Title

Comparison Of Changes In Fasting Glucose Levels After Aerobic Exercise Training In Pre- And Post-menopausal African American Women

Abstract

African American women have the greatest incidence rate of type II diabetes amongst all ethnic groups in the United States. Moreover, menopause confers a greater risk for the onset of type II diabetes. Aerobic exercise training (AEXT) has been well demonstrated to improve glucose metabolism and aid in the prevention of type II diabetes; however the effects of menopausal status on the exercise-induced adaptations in glucose metabolism have not been previously investigated.

PURPOSE: To investigate the effects of a 6-month AEXT intervention on fasting plasma glucose levels in pre- and post-menopausal African American women without clinically diagnosed type II diabetes.
