Aerobic exercise is associated with significant improvement in body composition, cardiovascular outcomes and metabolic outcomes in patients with metabolic syndrome (MetS).
Although narrower in scope, combination of aerobic and resistance exercise is also beneficial.
Why this matters
>20% of world population is at risk to develop MetS, and thus is at high risk to develop cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes.
Although evidence suggests beneficial effects of lifestyle intervention on metabolic profile in patients with type 2 diabetes and polycystic ovary, relative effect of exercise alone needs to be evaluated.
Aerobic exercise significantly reduced BMI (mean difference [MD], −0.29 kg m−2; P<.0001), body mass (MD, −1.16 kg; P=.0008), waist circumference (MD, −1.37 cm; P<.0001) and total body fat mass (MD, −1.19 kg; P=.0001) vs control.
