Trial size 24 participants
Trial identifier NCT02127957, FKEX_12.356


The objective of the investigators research program is to determine whether a combined exercise program (aerobic and resistance) improves abnormal glucose tolerance and diabetes control in CF patients. This program of exercises to increase strength and muscle endurance, exercise tolerance, will be assessed in a group of 12 CF patients with impaired glucose tolerance. The effect of exercise will be compared with a control group of 12 patients also glucose intolerant but do not participate in structured physical activity program. The duration of the exercise program will be 12 weeks and several measures (glucose tolerance, inflammatory profile, lung function, exercise capacity, muscle strength and endurance) will be conducted pre and post program to assess the program's impact .

Study Design

Allocation randomized
Intervention model crossover assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose prevention
Exercise group will have 6 visit and 8 phone call. Subject will have to do prescribed exercice for 1h, 3 times a week for 12 weeks.
Exercise will be prescribed by kinesiologist and will be done 3 times a week for 1 hour by subject. Every 4 weeks subject will be on supervised training session.
(No Intervention)
Control group will have 4 visit and 3 phone call. They will receive standard counselling for exercise in cystic fibrosis, but no prescribed exercice will be given.

Principal investigator Yves Berthiaume, Md
Description A total of 24 subjects with CF with impaired glucose tolerance or with diabetes related to CF (CFRD) unmedicated will be recruited. Participants will be recruited through a research nurse in CF , which will analyze the available data to medical records and seek the participation of subjects who meet the inclusion and exclusion criteria . Patients receive during their visit to the outpatient clinic of FK at Hotel -Dieu du CHUM hospital , a inform consent form (ICF) for the study. Their intention to participate and the main inclusion and exclusion criteria will be confirmed in a telephone interview conducted by a member of the team at the IRCM. Finally, during the visit at the IRCM , the subject will get answer to his question for ICF and ICF will be signed before any procedure. All participants who agree to participate in the research project must undergo a short telephone interview (20 minutes) and 4 assessment visits ( approximately 1-5 hours) Pre (2 visits ) and post (2 visits ) study . The control patients with delayed exercises conduct a further assessment visit at the end of the training. GROUP 1 EXERCISES : Patients in exercises group will be required to take part of two supervised training sessions and 8 follow up phone call . The exercise program will be performed three times per week for about one hour . GROUP 2 CONTROL: Participants in the control group will be contacted by phone once a month following entry into the study. On this occasion a reminder to complete the physical activity log will be realized. Following the visit #6 , patients in the control group will be invited to participate in a second study phase to participate in supervised exercise program . This participation will involve an additional 12 weeks of follow-up, which included the same visit as Group 1 with exercises. In this case, to simplify participation and reduce the volume of blood collected , the final visit (#5) of the project will also be the first visit of exercises phase. This part of study, involves 2 supervised training sessions and 8 follow up phone call . The exercises program will be performed three times per week for about one hour .
