Abstract

Abstract Aim To explore the dose?response between frequency of interruption of sedentary time and basal glucose (fasting glucose, the dawn phenomenon and night-time glucose) in Type 2 diabetes. Methods In a randomized three-treatment, two-period balanced incomplete block trial, 12 people with Type 2 diabetes (age, 60.0 ± 3.2 years; BMI, 30.2 ± 1.4 kg/m2) completed two of three conditions: sitting for 7 h interrupted every 60 min (Condition 1), 30 min (Condition 2), and 15 min (Condition 3) by 3-min light-intensity walking breaks. The activPAL3 and FreeStyle Libre were used to assess physical activity/sedentary behaviour and continuous glucose profile. Standardized meals were provided, and changes in basal glucose of the nights and early mornings before and after treatment conditions were calculated (mean ± SE). Results After treatment conditions, fasting glucose and duration of the dawn phenomenon were lower for Condition 3 (?1.0 ± 0.2 mmol/l, P
