From China: Exercise Intensity, Duration Can Affect CKD Risk in Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes

For adults with overweight/obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2D), longer duration of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and increases in MVPA are associated with a reduced risk for progression to chronic kidney disease (CKD), according to a study published online Feb. 6 in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

Mengyi Liu, from Nanfang Hospital in Guangzhou, China, and colleagues examined the long-term association of objectively measured MVPA and its longitudinal changes with progression to CKD in patients with T2D and overweight/obesity in a study including 1,746 participants. MVPA was measured at baseline and years 1, 4, and 8.
