[Scientific session research presentation] Objective: To examine the effect of Tai Chi Chuan exercise (TCC) on the peripheral nerve modulation in diabetes mellitus (DM) patients. Design: Parallel group comparative study with a pre- and post- design. Setting: Community.Participants: 28 participants with DM, 32 healthy adult controls.Intervention: 12-weeks Cheng?s TCC (37 movements). Tri-weekly, 10 minutes warm-up, 40 minutes TCC, 10 minutes cool-down. Main Outcome Measures: Fasting blood glucose (FBS) levels, insulin resistance index (IRI) and electrophysiological nerve conduction velocity (NCV) tests were measured pre-intervention and 12 weeks post. Results: A 12-week TCC significantly improved FBS and IRI. The TCC also improved the NCV of medina and ulnar in DM patients, but no significant enhancement detected in normal healthy controls. TCC program also improved distal latency of sensory NCV of ulnar nerves (P = 0.044). The TCC had no significantly effect on voltage proximal or voltage distal of nerve modulation. Conclusions: 12-weeks TCC significantly improved IRI and FBS, associated with improvement of motor NCV of upper extremities as well as distal latency of sensory ulnar NCV in DM patients. This suggests that defective peripheral NCV in diabetic subjects with mild/moderate peripheral neuropathy can be improved by TCC. A larger study with longer follow-up time is needed before more conclusive remarks can be made to prevent or to halt diabetic neuropathy by TCC.
