To examine associations between specific types of physical activity and all-cause
and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality in a large nationally representative
sample of adults with diabetes from Great Britain.
RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS
There were a total of 3,038 participants (675 deaths) with diabetes in the Health
Survey for England and the Scottish Health Surveys conducted between 1997
and 2008. Participants aged ‡50 years at baseline were followed up for an average
of 75.2 months for all-cause and CVD mortality. Data were collected on selfreported frequency, duration, and intensity of participation in sports and exercise, walking, and domestic physical activity, from which the number of MET-hours/
week were derived. Sex-specific medians of time spent in each type of physical
activity (for those physically active)were calculated, and Cox proportional hazards
regression conducted to examine type-specific associations between the level of
physical activity and all-cause and CVD mortality risk.
Inverse associations with all-cause and CVD mortality were observed for overall
physical activity in a dose-response manner after adjusting for covariates.
Compared with those who individuals were inactive, participants who reported
some activity, but below the recommended amount, or who met the physical
activity recommendations had a 26% (95%CI 39–11) and 35%(95% CI 47–21) lower
all-cause mortality, respectively. Similar results were found for below/above
median physical activity levels. Sports and exercise participation was inversely
associated with all-cause (but not CVD)mortality, as were above average levels of
walking. Domestic physical activity was not associated with mortality.
Moderate physical activity levels were associated with better prognosis in diabetic
