    Abstract

    The prevalence of obesity has increased worldwide and represents a major public health concern. Obesity is often associated with an increase in urinary albumin excretion and impaired insulin sensitivity. Whilst it is clear that exercise is beneficial in terms of improving insulin sensitivity, the optimal exercise prescription in different cohorts is still unknown, hence the recent increase in studies investigating high versus moderate intensity interventions. It is also unclear what effect acute bouts of exercise may have on microalbuminuria, a marker which is more commonly being utilized for screening and prognosis of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
