The Effects of Resistance Exercises in Glycemic Control of Women With Gestational Diabetes
The Effects of Resistance Exercises in Glycemic Control of Women With Gestational Diabetes - A Randomized Clinical Trial

The object of this study is to evaluate patients with a diagnosis of GD who are included in a program of RE carried out with rubber tubes, comparing the frequency of women who will use insulin in the group who will participate in the program with the group that won't do the exercises, and to verify the impact of the program on the adequacy of capillary glycemic control of the pregnant women.
