This study examined the effect of a combined program of exercise training and self-management education on risk factors for diabetes complications and adherence behavior. A two-group, quasi-experimental study design was used to test the 12-week intervention program with community-dwelling older adults in Korea. Change scores (from baseline to Week 13) of outcome variables were compared between the intervention group (n = 21) and the control group (n = 16). The change scores in triglyceride levels, body weight, body mass index, and diabetes self-management behavior showed significant differences between groups. However, no significant differences were found in A1C and blood pressure change scores between the groups in this sample, in which these characteristics were relatively well controlled at baseline. The results of this study showed some promising synergistic effects of lowering cardiovascular risk factors from combining the two interventions.
