Sajad. Arshadi, Maghsood. Peeri and Salar. Bakhtiyari

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of 6 weeks endurance swimming training on plasma antioxidants in diabetic rats. For this purpose, 30 male wistar rats were divided into three groups, one group of Diabetic control rats (DC, n=10), one group of Healthy control (HC, n=10), one group of diabetic and Swimming training (S, n=10). Results were analyzed using the one-way ANOVA followed by a Tukey test. Significance level was 0.05. The diabetic control group exhibited a significant decrease in body weight (P�?�?��?�??0.05). S and HC group have shown significant increase in cardiac antioxidant enzymes than DC group. The present results indicate that endurance swimming training is useful for treating metabolic diseases related to obesity and diabetes.
