Physical Activity behaviour before and after Diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes in Australian women: Data from a large population-based cohort study
activity is an effective primary and secondary prevention strategy for people
with type 2 diabetes (T2D). However, it is unclear whether people change their
daily physical activity after being diagnosed. We aim to identify and compare
physical activity trajectories before and after diagnosis of T2D in young- and
middle-aged Australian women (born in 1946-51 and 1973-78, respectively). We
will also compare the associations between sociodemographic, behavioural and
health characteristics with physical activity trajectories in these women.
