Từ khóa:Physical activity, type 2 diabetes, HbA1c
Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is caused by a combination of lifestyle and genetic factors. Physical activity (PA) is a key element in improving the HbA1c index and reducing the risk of complications in a patient with T2D. A descriptive crosssectional study was conducted on 629 outpatients with T2D at Hue Transportation Hospital to describe patients’ PA levels and some related factors. The results showed that there were 48% of participants achieved the WHO recommended level of PA. The multivariate logistic regression model identifed some factors associated with PA among the T2D patients, including age group (group aged 45-64 with OR = 1.55; 95% CI: 1.10 – 2.18), academic level (≥ high school level with OR = 1.79; 95%CI: 1.15 – 2.78), sleeping time (6 - 9 hours with OR = 1.86; 95% CI: 1.20 – 2.87), blood pressure (normal blood pressure with OR = 1.42; 95% CI: 1.02 – 1.99) and HbA1c (< 7% with OR = 1.43; 95%CI: 1.03 – 1.99). The proportion of patients meeting the recommended PA level was low, making it crucial to strengthen education about the health benefts of doing PAs for diabetic patients.
