Along with the increase in the incidence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in the United States comes an increase in the health consequences of elevated blood glucose levels, including delayed wound healing. Exercise has been demonstrated to advance wound healing; however in terms of wounds in diabetics, it is not known what intensity of exercise will have the most positive effects. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of low- and high-intensity exercise on patterns of wound healing in diabetic mice.
