Abstract

The primary aim of this thesis is to examine changes in retinal microvascular structure and dimethylarginine (ADMA) concentration in women aged 65-74 yr with type 2 diabetes, following twelve weeks of controlled and supervised exercise training at individual gas-exchange threshold (Tge). In particular, this thesis examined the relationship between retinal vessel calibre/fractal analysis and measures of physiological functional capacity and endothelial function.
