The effect of high intensity interval training on cardiac autonomic regulation in patients with type 2 diabetes
- Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) is associated with reduced cardiac autonomic regulation and increased risk for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality (1, 2).
- Dysregulation in cardiac autonomic function is associated with increased mortality and morbidity (3).
- High intensity interval training (HIIT) has been shown to improve cardiac structure and function (4).
- The effects of HIIT on cardiac autonomic function in patients with T2D is unknown.
