Abstract
It is known that ethnicity is a risk factor for diabetes. Thus, individuals of African, Latin American, and Asian descent are particularly susceptible (1). As an example, a health survey in six urban areas in Peru found a diabetes prevalence of 17% among women (2,3). It was also found that low socioeconomic status was associated with a high burden of noncommunicable diseases and appeared as an independent risk factor for diabetes. In several populations, it is known that increased physical activity reduces the risk for diabetes (4,5). Whether this applies for all populations is, however, not known. The aim of the present study was to explore if supervised endurance training is feasible among socioeconomically marginalized women of a poor... (More)
