Purpose: This study aimed to investigate whether cardiac output (CO) responses were related toV˙ O2 kinetics during cycling in type 2 diabetes. Methods: A total of 9 middle-aged women with uncomplicated type 2 diabetes, 9 nondiabetic overweight women, and 11 nondiabetic lean women were recruited. Initially, the ventilatory threshold (VT) and peak V˙ O2 were determined during a maximal graded test. Then, on two separate days, subjects completed three 7-min bouts of constant-load cycling at each of three intensities: 50% VT, 80% VT, and midpoint between
VT and peakV˙ O2 (50% $). CO (inert gas rebreathing) was recorded at 30 and 240 s of an additional bout at each intensity.V˙ O2 kinetic parameters were determined by fitting a biexponential (50% VT and 80% VT) or triexponential (50% $) function to the V˙ O2 data.
Results: PeakV˙ O2 was significantly lower in type 2 diabetes compared with the two nondiabetic groups (P G 0.05). The time constant of phase 2 was significantly greater (P G 0.05) in type 2 diabetes compared with the nondiabetic heavy and lean groups at 50% VT (34.2 T
15.7 vs 15.4 T 7.3 and 20.2 T 9.7 s) and 80% VT (39.1 T 9.0 vs 24.8 T 8.8 and 36.8 T 7.9 s), but none of theV˙ O2 kinetic parameters were different at 50% $. CO responses during exercise were not different among the three groups, and at 80% VT, the change in CO from 30 to 240 s was significantly larger in type 2 diabetes compared with the two nondiabetic groups. Conclusions: The results confirm that type 2 diabetes slows the dynamic response of V˙ O2 during light and moderate relative intensity exercise in females but that this occurs in the absence of any slowing of the CO response during the initial period of exercise.
