Background and Aim: Diabetes is known as the most common metabolic endocrine disorder that causes debilitating complications of the eye, renal, neurological and cardiac diseases, and has irreparable biological, psychological, social and economic consequences. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of water exercise on glycosylated hemoglobin and C-reactive protein in type 2 diabetic women.

Methods: In this semi-experimental study, 30 type II diabetic women were selected and randomly assigned to either control (n = 15) or control (n = 15). The experimental group performed 8 sessions per week for 3 sessions and 60-70 minutes each exercise protocol in the cramped pool. During this study, no intervention was performed on the control group. Data were analyzed for the comparison of intra-group of correlated T-test and inter-group comparison of independent t-test              (p<0.05).

Results: The result showed that the exercise in water in the experimental group, body mass index (p <0.015), waist to hip ratio (p <0.022) and body fat percentage (p> 0.04) significantly decreased. Also, the results of independent t test showed that HOMA-IR (P=0.013), CRP (P=0.001), HbA1C (P=0.001), significantly decreased in experimental group compared with control group.

Conclusion: It can be suggested that eight weeks of exercise in water by decreasing anthropometric indices, CRP levels, glycosylated hemoglobin, and insulin resistance index can prevent type 2 diabetes and its metabolic complications.
