Author(s): Jagadish S Gasti and Dr. AG Bujurke
The aim of the study was designed to find out the impact of swimming & yogic exercise on random blood sugar level among diabetic patients. To attain the purpose, sixty (N=60) men diabetic patients residing in Belagavi, Karnataka, India were randomly selected as subjects. They were divided randomly into four groups of fifteen each i.e., (n=15) Group-I underwent Swimming, Group-II underwent Yogic Exercises, Group-III underwent Combined swimming and yogic exercise and Group-IV was act as Control. The Experimental groups underwent respective training period for three days per week for twelve weeks. For Combined swimming and yogic exercise the training period was restricted to twelve alternative weeks and the number of sessions per week was also confined to three. Random Blood Sugar was selected as dependent variable and it was assessed through Blood Samples. All the subjects were tested prior to and immediately after the experimental period on the selected dependent variables. Data were collected and statistically analyzed using ANCOVA. Scheffe’s post hoc test was applied to determine the significant difference between the paired means. In all the cases 0.05 level of significance was fixed. The results of the study showed that there was a significant difference among all the Experimental groups’ namely swimming group, yogic exercises group and combined swimming and yogic exercise group. Further the results, showed combined swimming and yogic exercise group was found to be better than the swimming and yogic exercise group in Random Blood Sugar.
