Aim. In recent years Metabolic Syndrome (MS) has become a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in industrialized countries,overwhelming infectious diseases, traumas and smoke-related diseases. The core of metabolic interactions in MS is not fully understood yet, but it is well known that individualized physical exercise is effective in contrasting such abnormalities, when prescribed at the same care intensity of a traditional drug therapy. Methods. In our study we verified the impact of two different types of physical exercise (gym and swimming pool) on MS parameters. Enrolled patients underwent a series of measures: blood tests (fasting glycemia, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides), anthropometric tests (weight, height and BMI ) and functional tests (V’O2max, Handgrip, Sit and reach test, Walkingspeed and Near tandem balance). All patients gave their informed consent.

Abstract

Aim. In recent years Metabolic Syndrome (MS) has become a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in industrialized countries,overwhelming infectious diseases, traumas and smoke-related diseases. The core of metabolic interactions in MS is not fully understood yet, but it is well known that individualized physical exercise is effective in contrasting such abnormalities, when prescribed at the same care intensity of a traditional drug therapy. Methods. In our study we verified the impact of two different types of physical exercise (gym and swimming pool) on MS parameters. Enrolled patients underwent a series of measures: blood tests (fasting glycemia, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides), anthropometric tests (weight, height and BMI ) and functional tests (V’O2max, Handgrip, Sit and reach test, Walkingspeed and Near tandem balance). All patients gave their informed consent.
