Abstract

Type 2 diabetes is associated with disturbances in coagulation and fibrinolysis. Prospective studies show that increased tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) antigen increases the risk of cardiovascular mortality. The present study examined the hypothesis that combining a regime of moderate aerobic exercise with one daily fish meal as part of a low-fat diet (30% total energy) would improve coagulation and fibrinolytic factors in dyslipidaemic type 2 diabetic patients. In a randomised, controlled, 8-week trial, 55 sedentary type 2 diabetic subjects with serum triglycerides >1.8 mmol/l and/or HDL-C
