People with type II diabetes have more liver function abnormalities than non-diabetics. Recent studies have shown
the mutual relationship between metabolic conditions of type II diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Therefore, this study explores the effects of synthetic aerobic exercises on the indicators of liver inflammation (AST
& ALT) and some of the cardiovascular risk factors of serum of the middle-aged women with diabetes (HDL, LDL,
& triglyceride) who live in Behbahan city. Methodology: In this study, 30 participants were selected randomly from
among women with type II diabetes with BMI>25, aged 45-60, and divided into control and experimental groups.
The participants of the practicing group practiced 12 weeks (three days a week with the intensity of 55-70 %
maximum heart rate (MHR) and 35-50 minutes per session). The results were analyzed with SPSS and dependent ttest
was used to compare the average score of each group in pretest, and independent t-test was used to compare the
averages of the different variables between two groups. Results: According to the results, 12 weeks of aerobic
exercise have significant effect (p<0/05) on the level of alanine transaminase and aspartate transaminase of
participant’s serum. In addition, the results have shown that 12 weeks of aerobic exercise have significant effect
(p<0/05) on high-density lipoprotein, low-density lipoprotein, and triglyceride of the participants. Conclusion: It
can be concluded that synthetic aerobic exercise can be effective in the conditions of patients with type II diabetes
with reducing some indicators of liver inflammation and improving the lipid profile of serum of the participants.
