  1. C: control; DC: diabetic control; DT: diabetic training; T: control training; BGL: blood glucose levels (mg/dl); BW: body weight (g); MM: muscle mass. Repeated measures ANOVA and two-way ANOVA and Tukey's post hoc test: * and ** showing p < 0.05 and p < 0.001 versus C, respectively. †p < 0.05 versus DC. Thirteen rats in each group were used for this analysis.
