Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM2) is considered a chronic inflammatory and systemic disease of low degree of intensity that promotes other pathologies such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and cognitive impairment. The relationship between inflammatory markers and insulin resistance in obese patients is known. Low-grade inflammation is an independent predictor of chronic diseases and mortality from all causes. Ferritin may be increased in DM2, but it is not clear if its cause is hyperglycemia or chronic inflammation.


To evaluate the impact of a twenty-week program of exercise and diet on the markers of inflammation, metabolic control and the value of ferritin in a sample of obese patients with DM2, assisted in our National Health System.


Open, controlled and randomized clinical trial in primary care patients. Of 161 patients with DM2 evaluated 35 fulfilled the inclusion criteria. They were divided into two homogeneous groups (control and intervention). Blood was taken from both groups to measure Ferritin along with other inflammatory and metabolic markers, before and after the exercise and diet program. These variables and the changes in serum Ferritin were analyzed.


At the beginning of the study Ferritin was elevated in 72.2% and 52.9% of the control and intervention group respectively. In the end, there was a significant difference between the groups, with benefit of the intervention group in the decrease of Interleukin-6, glycosylated hemoglobin, waist and body mass index. There was a non-significant decrease in C-reactive protein and Ferritin. This last one was not related to the other variables. The control group showed no significant decrease of any variable Conclusions: To apply a program of controlled exercise and diet, in the usual treatment of patients with DM2, improves inflammation and glucose homeostasis, discernible by the decrease in inflammatory parameters and by the improvement in the glycemic control. Serum ferritin was not useful to predict the metabolic control of these patients and assess the response to treatment.
