Weight (kg) 83.4 ± 23.6 76.2 ± 14.3
Height (cm) 163.1 ± 10.6 169.0 ± 9.2
BMI (kg.m 2(-1) ) 30.9 ± 5.2 26.5 ± 3.8
Time of disease (years) 6.0 ± 2.3 -
Fasting blood glucose (mg.dL -1 ) 138.6 ± 34.2* 91.1 ± 5.5
HbA 1c (%) 6.8 ± 1.3* 5.2 ± 0,4
VO 2peak (mL.kg. -1 .min -1 ) 20.6 ± 4.3* 29.4 ± 6.8
RMSSD rest (ms) 21.2 ± 3.5 26.3 ± 5.1

  1. Data expressed as mean (± standard deviation) and standard error of mean for heart rate variability variables (RMSSD and SD1).
  2. BMI = body mass index; VO2peak= peak oxygen uptake; HbA1c= glycated hemoglobin estimated as suggested Rohlfing et al.[21]; RMSSDrest= square root of the mean squared successive differences between adjacent R-R intervals in rest; SD1rest= standard deviation of variability instantaneous beat-to-beat in rest. *p < 0.05 in relationship to ND group.
