Variables r P R P
Triglecrides 0.545 0.00** 0.531 0.00**

  1. r = correlation coefficient
  2. There were significant positive correlation between HbA1c and TG, cholesterol and LDL-c before and after the exercise program. While there were no significant correlation between HbA1c and DM duration, HDL-c neither before nor after the exercise program.
