Physical Activity behaviour before and after Diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes in Australian women: Data from a large population-based cohort study


Regular physical 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.
