dc.description.abstractThe primary aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of implementing individualised exercise plans in an attempt to initiate and maintain physical activity levels in NIDDM patients. Six overweight NIDDM patients participated in a graduated individualised exercise programme whereby walking was the chosen activity. Follow-up consisted of regular phone contact and the use of exercise charts for six weeks. The patients were left for a further six weeks to exercise independently. Adherence to the programme was not always adequate in terms of frequency and duration for weight reduction. Metabolic changes were not achieved over the twelve week period. Despite this, patients reported positive feelings of wellbeing and experienced sufficient benefits to maintain a higher level of activity than previously achieved.en
