The Effects of Physical Training and GLP-1 Receptor Agonist Liraglutide Treatment in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01455441|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : October 20, 2011
Last Update Posted : May 29, 2015
The objective of this study is to investigate the effects of physical training in patients with type 2 diabetes during treatment with the GLP-1 receptor agonist liraglutide (Victoza®) in a 16-weeks double-blinded, randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial.
Hypothesis: Physical training leads to better metabolic control in type 2 diabetic patients when training is combined with liraglutide (Victoza®) treatment.

Active Comparator: Training and liraglutide
Treatment with both training and liraglutide for 16 weeks
|Other: Training and liraglutide|
Placebo Comparator: Training and placebo
Treatment wiht both training and placebo for 16 weeks
|Other: Training and placebo|
- HbA1c [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]Change in HbA1c from baseline to 16 weeks. Glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) is a form of haemoglobin which is measured primarily to identify the average plasma glucose concentration over prolonged periods of time (12 weeks).
- Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2peak) [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]Changes in VO2peak from baseline to 16 weeks
- Body weight [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]Changes in body weight from baseline to 16 weeks evaluated by a full body DEXA scan
- Blood pressure [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]Changes in blood pressure from baseline to 16 weeks
- Glycaemic control [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]Changes in overall glycaemic control parameters, insulin sensitivity and beta cell function evaluated by The Homeostasis Model Assessment (HOMA) and incretin hormones response
- Meal test [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]The changes in the postprandial response of incretin hormones, insulin and glucose, glucagon and the microvascular blood flow will be evaluated. Changes in blood leves of triglycerides and cholesterol.
- Myocardial echocardiography [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
