Background: Physical activity combined with some herbal supplementations can affect body energy metabolism, blood lipids and physical fitness levels. However, the effect of exercise training combined with fenugreek on lipid metabolism and body composition in patients with type2 diabetes is unknown.
Objective: The aim of present study was to investigate the effects of eight weeks’ endurance training along with fenugreek seed supplement on lipid profile, body composition, insulin resistance and VO2max in obese women with type2 diabetes.
Methods: For conducting present study, 40 obese women with type2 diabetes and mean age 44.2 ± 2.5 years and body mass index (BMI) 32.58±1.67 kg/m2 assigned in four groups (each group 10 person) include Placebo, Fenugreek, Exercise training and Exercise training+Fenugreek groups. Running endurance training program performed for eight weeks, three sessions in a week and 30-55 minutes in each session. Training intensity increased from %45 reserve heart rate in the first week to %65 reserve heart rate in the last week. Subjects in Fenugreek and Exercise training+ Fenugreek groups consumed daily 15g fenugreek seeds mixed with yogurt in three meals (each meal five g) include morning, noon and night.
Results: results indicate a significant decrease of percent body fat and significant increase of VO2max in both trained groups (P<0.05). Moreover, lipid profile improvement and glucose and insulin resistance decrease in Exercise training groups were significant. In addition, HDL-c increase and LDL-c decrease in Exercise+Fenugreek group was also significant compared to Exercise alone.
Conclusion: Fenugreek consumption increases the endurance training induced adaptations in obese women afflicted with type 2 diabetes.
