There are reports of abnormal pulmonary oxygen uptake (VO(2)) and deoxygenated hemoglobin ([HHb]) kinetics in individuals with Type 2 diabetes (T2D) below 50 years of age with disease durations of <5 years. We examined the O2 and muscle [HHb] kinetics in 12 older T2D patients with extended disease durations (age: 65 ± 5 years; disease duration 9.3 ± 3.8 years) and 12 healthy age-matched control participants (CON; age: 62 ± 6 years). Maximal oxygen uptake (VO(2) max) was determined via a ramp incremental cycle test and VO(2) and [HHb] kinetics were determined during subsequent sub-maximal step exercise. The VO(2) max was significantly reduced (P<0.05) in individuals with T2D compared to CON (1.98 ± 0.43 vs. 2.72 ± 0.40 L⋅min(-1), respectively) but, surprisingly, VO(2) kinetics was not different in T2D compared with CON (phase II time constant: 43 ± 17 vs. 41 ± 12 s, respectively). The [HHb]/VO(2) was significantly higher in T2D compared to CON (235 ± 99 vs. 135 ± 33 AU⋅ L⋅min(-1); P<0.05). Despite a lower VO(2) max, VO(2) kinetics is not different in older T2D compared to healthy age-matched control participants. The elevated [HHb]/VO(2) in T2D individuals possibly indicates a compromised muscle blood flow that mandates a greater O(2) extraction during exercise. Longer disease duration may result in adaptations in the O(2) extraction capabilities of individuals with T2D thereby mitigating the expected age-related slowing of VO(2) kinetics.
