The synergistic effect of a proposed sport and nutrition suggested program on some physiological and physical variables in diabetic (type ii)
The study aimed to identify the effect of sport and nutrition program on some physiological and physical variables among new patients with Type II diabetes. To achieve this aim, the researcher followed the experimental approach. The study sample consisted of 60 patients selected following the purposive sampling approach who were then divided into three groups. The first group was an experimental group of 20 individuals on whom the sport and nutrition program was applied. The second group was an experimental group of 20 individuals on whom the nutrition program was applied. The third group was the control group, which consisted of 20 individuals who practiced their life normally with no experimental interventions. The researcher applied pre and post measurements on the HBA1C, TC, TG, LDL, HDL, and BMI scales and analyzed the data using version 26.0 of the Statistical Package for Social Sciences )SPSS, v. 26.0( program. The statistical analyses and tests included calculations of the mathematical averages, standard deviations, skewness, the Kruskal-Wallis H Test, Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test, and Mann-Whitney U Test. The results revealed statistically-significant (α < .05) differences between the pre and post measurements among the members of the first and second experimental groups in favour of the post test. The results also showed statistically-significant (α < .05) differences between the pre and post measurements of the control group in favour of the pre-test. Moreover, the results uncovered statistically-significant (α < .05) differences in their scores on the scales under study between members of the third group and the first experimental group. In the light of these results, the researcher recommends application of the proposed sport and nutrition program for new Type II diabetes patients because of (i) its positive impact on the physiological and physical variables and (ii) the need for integration of nutrition program with the sport program to achieve the best results.
