Diabetic cardiomyopathy is associated with cardiac remodeling, myocardial dysfunction, low-grade inflammation, and reduced cardiac adiponectin in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Alternatively, physical exercise is an important strategy for the management of diabetes. This study aimed to investigate the influence of low-intensity swimming training in cardiac cytokines, structural
Diabetic cardiomyopathy is associated with cardiac muscle remodeling, resulting in myocardial dysfunction, whereas exercise training is a useful nonpharmacological strategy for the therapy of cardiac diseases. This study tested the effects of low-intensity swimming-training on the structural remodeling of the left ventricle in growing rats with unmanaged experimental diabetes.
