For the study, within 3 months, 11 adults of middle age with a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes performed exercises during 25 minutes which included 10 minutes of HIIT. The control group included 5 people who didn’t perform any exercises.

The analysis results showed that the participants executing HIIT showed improved heart function after 3 months without changing diet or medication.

Lead author Genevieve Wilson, who did the study as part of her Ph.D., says: “[…] the findings demonstrate that high-intensity exercise may provide an inexpensive, practical way to reverse, or reduce the loss in heart function caused by type 2 diabetes.”
