Fatigue is a prevalent, costly and disabling clinical complaint among those with type 2 diabetes. In a randomized crossover trial, prolonged uninterrupted sitting increased fatigue by 29% relative to days when sitting was regularly interrupted by brief activity-breaks. This may have implications for diabetes-related quality of life, occupational productivity and self-care.
