A sedentary lifestyle or lack of physical activity can cause various diseases and metabolic disorders, such as diabetes. The primary problem faced by diabetics is increased glucose concentrations in the blood. Diabetes can be prevented by exercising regularly or by increasing daily physical activity. For example, people with diabetes can perform gymnastics regularly. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of Indonesian Series 6 Diabetes Gymnastics on glucose tolerance test results. This study used a pretest and posttest design involving 35 females aged 21–60 years who all comprised one group treatment. All subjects in this study were healthy and had not been diagnosed with diabetes, as evidenced by their fasting blood glucose (GDP) levels before performing the Indonesia Series 6 Diabetes Gymnastics. Performing Indonesian Series 6 Diabetes Gymnastics can reduce GDP levels significantly (p = 0.03) but cannot significantly reduce the 2-hour postprandial blood glucose (GD2PP) levels (p = 0.364). Based on these results, one repetition of the Indonesian Series 6 Diabetes Gymnastics cannot affect glucose tolerance test results.
