Background: Physical activity with diet and medication–considered fundamental in the treatment of diabetes. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of combined 12-week aerobic exercise and barley β glucan (BBG) on blood glucose and lipid profile in patients with type 2 diabetes. Methods: Twenty- four female volunteers (49±5 years) were selected, and after completion of questionnaires, were randomly divided into three groups a) aerobic training with diet group (n=8), b) diet group (n=8) and c) control group (n=8). The diet group used one barley bread per day with 4 gram beta glucan during 12 week. The combined group participated in progressive walking training program with intensity of 60-70% of maximal heart rate 2 to 3 times a week, 20 to 60 minutes in each session in addition to diet program. The variables measured included blood sugar, triglyceride, cholesterol, LDL, HDL. For data analysis ANOVA used to compare mean differences between groups. Results: Results indicated significant difference in blood sugar between control and experimental groups while non significant changes was observed in lipid profile. Conclusion: Aerobic exercise and BBG can decrease blood glucose in patients with diabetes Therefore, it should be considered seriously as part of the treatment of these patients.
