Evaluation of walking exercise on glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus: a protocol for systematic review and meta analysis of randomized crossover controlled trials. Inplasy protocol 202090046. Review question / Objective: 1. Does walking exercise decrease blood glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus? 2. Does walking exercise improve insulin resistance in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus? 3. How long does it take to walk to achieve

Whether walking intensity has impact on glycaemic control? Condition being studied: Clinical trials indicated that walking exercise could improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, but it is difficult to draw definitive and reliable conclusions due to the small sample size and possible exaggerated efficacy of various individual clinical trials. Therefore, we will conduct systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the current evidence for the efficacy of walking on glycemic control.
