In patients with coronary artery disease, whether they had type 2 diabetes or not, routine leisure-time physical activity was inversely associated with short-term cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, according to research published in Diabetes Care.

“Patients with no or reduced levels of leisure-time physical activity had an over twofold increased risk of a composite cardiovascular endpoint compared with those who engaged in leisure-time physical activity over three times weekly,” the researchers wrote.
