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.
