Some patients with type 2 diabetes will not respond to exercise, according to a literature review published online in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. Researchers found that 15% to 20% of type 2 diabetes patients did not garner any metabolic health benefits from exercise, failing to improve glucose homeostasis, insulin sensitivity, and muscle mitochondrial density after supervised exercise training programs. In addition to the finding that nearly one in five type 2 diabetes patients did not benefit from exercise, the researchers also found that classic genetics studies demonstrated that the extent of exercise training response was largely heritable.
