The study found that aerobic exercise was more effective in controlling blood sugar and fasting glucose than resistance training in the patients with established diabetes but a combination of the two had a far bigger impact on the disease.

Lukas Schwingshackl said that further high quality with long-term exercise interventions were needed to develop definitive recommendations.

The study is published in the journal Diabetologia.
