Abstract

Background and Objectives

The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to compare the effects of 8 weeks of supplementation with omega-3 and L-carnitine with the combination exercise on hematology parameters of type 2 diabetic women.

Materials and Methods

In this semi-experimental study, 58 patients with type 2 diabetes having referred to Diabetes Association of Shahrood with the mean age of 52.7 ± 6.17 years were randomy divided into six groups: (1) exercise + placebo [10 patients], (2) exercise + omega-3 [10 patients], (3) exercise + L carnitine [10 patients], (4) exercise+omega 3 + L carnitine [10 patients], (5) omega-3 + Lcarnitine [10 patients], and (6) the control group [8 patients]. The patients underwent endurance-resistance exercises.

Results

The number of WBCs in groups 1, 3, and 4  and that of HCT in the groups 3 and 4 compared to the control showed a significant decrease. However for RBCs, a significant increase in the groups 2, 3, and 4  compared to the control group was observed.

Conclusions 

It seems that 8 weeks of supplementation with omega-3 and L-carnitine combined with the combination exercises place an impact on the amount of WBCs and RBCs improving the oxygen carrying capacity in the patients with type 2 diabetes.
