Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that has a close relationship with Cardiovascular diseases. Diabetes could characterize by 1) hyperglycemia due to secretion deficiency of insulin, 2) by resistance to insulin and 3) by both of them. In this work, effect of ten weeks of concurrent (aerobic-resistance) exercise and core exercise on 12 women above 48 years old was examined. In this experimental research, 22 women were chosen from the women who came to Ghaem clinic of Ghaem place of Tehran city. they divided to two groups; 10 as control group and 12 as exercise group. The exercise went on for ten weeks, each week three sessions and an hour for each session. Every session of exercise contained 10 minutes for warming up, 20 minutes for aerobic exercise, 20 minutes for resistance exercise and finally 10 minutes for cooling down. using statistical method of T by SPSS (Statistical package for social science) 23 software, fasting blood sugar of participants was measured before exercise period and 24 hrs. after exercise period. Results showed that fasting blood sugar of exercise group was decreased dramatically in comparison with control group (P<0.05). after 8 weeks of concurrent aerobic (60% to 75% of Maximum rate of oxygen consumption or VO2 max)-resistance (0.33 of Maximum Voluntary Contraction or MVC) exercise and core exercise, a dramatic decrease in blood sugar was observed in diabetics’ women aged above 48 years old. As a result, concurrent aerobic-resistance exercise could decrease blood sugar of diabetics’ women above 48 years old (t10=4.000 P=0.010).
