A prospective literature review by American authors suggests that qigong exercise shows promising results for treating various aspects of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). These include blood glucose, triglycerides, total cholesterol, weight, BMI and insulin resistance. However, a large variation in styles and definitions of qigong exists and this, along with inconsistencies in control groups, research subjects and diabetic markers analysed, makes firm conclusions impossible to draw and means further well-designed RCTs are needed to confirm the benefits.
