Researchers from the Chungnam National University, College of Nursing, Daejeon, South Korea have studied the effects of Tai Chi exercises on a range of measures linked to type 2 diabetes, including glucose control, neuropathy scores, balance, and quality of life.

The researchers focussed on 59 diabetic patients with neuropathy and put them through a “standardised Tai Chi for diabetes” programme.

This was made up of a twice weekly, 1 hour session of Tai Chi. This continued over a 12 week period.

The results, published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine showed that those in the Tai Chi group did significantly better than those in the control group in terms of total symptom scores, glucose control, balance, and quality of life.
