      <Abstract>Background: Type 2 Diabetes mellitus has become an epidemic world-wide. Lack of physical activity and high calorie diet increase the prevalence of Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes and its complications can be prevented by regular exercises. Many studies have assessed the effect of exercises on blood glucose levels where larger group of muscles are involved. There are no exercise studies involving smaller groups of muscles like forearm and digital muscles.Aim: To evaluate the effect of a single bout of hand muscle exercise on the blood glucose level in diabetics.Materials and Methods: Subjects were Type 2 diabetics, between the age group of 45 – 65 years. Exercise was done with a digitalized hand-grip dynamometer.Results: Capillary blood glucose levels before and after exercise was estimated and analyzed with Students paired t test. Significant decrease in the blood glucose levels after the exercise was noted. (p</Abstract>
