Abstract

Introduction: The purpose of the study was to assess the relationship between physical activity and physical health in diabetic middle aged males.

Method: This cross sectional analysis used 2013 BRFSS data from South Carolina, West Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi in multiple linear regression analysis.

Results: The results indicated that middle aged males reported higher days of physical health for all levels of physical activity after controlling for alcohol use, tobacco use, educational level, employment status, weight, age, and race/ethnicity.

Conclusion: Providers should assess levels of physical activity in their middle aged diabetic male patients and, if needed, provide patient education for the importance of physical activity for their physical health.
