The beneficial effect of physical activity in the general population is well known, but, to the authors' knowledge, has not been reported for persons with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
In a cohort of 548 diabetes patients followed as part of the Pittsburgh Insulin-dependent Diabetes Mellitus Morbidity and Mortality Study, physical activity was ascertained by survey in 1981, and mortality was ascertained through January 1, 1988.
Cases were also compared with non-diabetic sibling controls.
Activity level among cases varied inversely with the occurrence of diabetic complications.
Overall activity level was inversely related to mortality risk.
