  Purpose
This study describes a controlled randomized clinical trial to evaluate the effect of inspiratory muscle training in patients with diabetic autonomic neuropathy.

Condition Intervention Phase
Diabetes Mellitus Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy Other: Inspiratory muscle training (IMT) Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Inspiratory Muscle Training in Patients With Autonomic Neuropathic: a Randomized Trial

Further study details as provided by Instituto de Cardiologia do Rio Grande do Sul:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Inspiratory muscle strength [ Time Frame: eight ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Variability of heart rate [ Time Frame: eight ]

Estimated Enrollment: 24
Study Start Date: August 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Other: Inspiratory muscle training (IMT)
    IMT (30 min 7 times per week, for 8 weeks)
    Other Names:
    • Diabetic autonomic neuropathy;
    • Inspiratory muscle function testing;
    • forced vital capacity and forced expiratory volume;
    • Maximal functional capacity with incremental exercise test;
    • variability of the heart frequency.
Detailed Description:
The diabetic autonomic neuropathy (NAD) is a common complication of diabetes mellitus (DM), both of the type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1) as of the type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). The results of this study, would help to reveal the degree of commitment generated by NAD in respiratory muscle strength, can also enable the development of a new therapeutic approach, such non-pharmacological (respiratory muscle training), with a view to improve the respiratory muscle strength and alleviate the autonomic dysfunction in these patients.
