There is evidence that asthma is associated with insulin resistance or high glucose level, although the molecular mechanisms for this are less understood. In this study, we evaluate glucose or insulin resistance in response to one exercise in asthma patients. To archive this purpose, fourteen males (age 39 ± 8.8 year, height 175 ± 1.9 cm, weight 96 ± 11 kg) with mild to moderate asthma were completed a short time exercise included leg cycling. webmd_rm_photo_of_asthma_illustrationBlood samples were collected for measure glucose and insulin at before and at the end of exercise. The insulin resistance index was assessed by homoeostasis model assessment (HOMA-IR). Statistical analysis used by Independent paired T-test. Glucose level (p = 0.000) and insulin resistance decreased significantly (p = 0.005) by exercise test in studied patients. There was no significant change in serum insulin by exercise test (p = 0.093). Based on these data, we can say one short time exercise can be improving glucose homeostasis in asthma patients.
